Additive Manufacturing for Tooling

May 26, 2023

Additive Manufacturing for Tooling
Today’s advanced tooling manufacturers want to design and iterate faster, speed up production times, assure yield quality, and improve the durability and performance of their inserts.

Achieving all this, and more, is mission critical to the needs of customers in the aerospace, energy, automotive, and other industries for whom the rapid and repeatable production of high-quality cast parts is essential. Until now the limitations of conventional 3D metal printers made it difficult for tooling manufacturers to harness the full potential of additive manufacturing (AM) and advanced tooling manufacturing processes. But no more.
