How to 3D Print Injection Molds with SLA Technology | Formlabs

Accelerate product development, reduce costs and lead times, and bring better products to market by incorporating 3D printing and short-run injection molding into your development process.  Use 3D-printed injection molds with both benchtop and industrial machines to efficiently and affordably produce hundreds to thousands of functional prototypes, parts for pilot production, or end-use parts.

Injection molding is one of the leading processes for manufacturing plastics. It is widely used for mass-producing identical parts with tight tolerances. It is a cost-effective and extremely repeatable technology that yields high-quality parts for large series. It can produce volumes from 1,000 to 100,000+ of parts at very low unit costs. Injection molding has a short cycle time, with each machine capable of building new parts every 15 to 60 seconds. It is a fast, intensive process where high heat and pressure are involved to melt thermoplastic and force it inside a mold.
