Rutland Plastics: 3D Printing Jigs & Fixtures With Stratasy Additive Manufacturing

Manufacturing relies on jigs and fixtures to maintain quality and production efficiency. These tools are used to align, assemble, clamp, hold, test and calibrate components and sub–assemblies at all stages of manufacturing. Normally they’re machined or fabricated from metal, wood or plastic.   But smart manufacturers like Rutland Plastics in the UK are adopting additive manufacturing to produce custom jigs and fixtures in a fraction of the time and cost required by conventional tooling methods.   Watch this video to see how they’re using their Objet350 Connex 3D Printer from Stratasys to produce 90% of their jigs and fixtures.

Cost-effective Blow Mold Prototypes with 3D Printing

Blow molding is a manufacturing process used to produce hollow plastic parts, such as bottles and other containers. Blow mold design and the specification of process parameters require skill and precision. A small change in the pinch–off or vent design, die temperature or blow pressure can dramatically affect the molding results.   Prototyping enables designers to validate these parameters and accelerate design approval. But up till now, high costs and long lead times have deterred blow mold prototyping.   Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, makes prototyping a viable option. In this brief video you will learn how to produce cost-effective…

Fast, Economical Silicone Molds with 3D Printed Patterns

Silicone molding, also known as room temperature vulcanization (RTV) molding, is an affordable solution for prototyping, functional testing, product demonstrations and short–run production. The molds are made by pouring liquid silicone rubber over a pattern; the resulting firm but flexible mold can reproduce extremely complex geometries and intricate details with tight tolerances.   The traditional mold making approach is to machine the patterns, but this can prove costly, require lead times of one to two weeks, and restricts the geometric complexity of the molded parts. Design changes to machined parts require substantial lead times.   Stratasys additive manufacturing is a…

Whale Cuts Lead Time by 97% with 3D Printed Injection Molds
