Coating mold components like ejector guide elements, cores, lifts and cavities increases the lifespan of molds while reducing maintenance and running costs.
The Digital Revolution has already disrupted media, finance, consumer products, healthcare, and other sectors. Manufacturing leaders can’t (and shouldn’t) escape it.
This bimodal distribution is rampant throughout industry. It can be very simply described as “too much of the wrong and too little of the right” at any point in time and “too much in total” over time.
HP Showcases Growth in High-Volume 3D Printing Deployments and Breakthrough Applications for Manufacturing
Protolabs, IAM 3D Hub, Materialise, and ZiggZagg embrace HP’s Multi Jet Fusion for digital manufacturing; new applications for the Pontifical Swiss Guard, PepsiCo, auto racing, orthotics, industrial machinery, and more
If the workpiece datum of a finished part is off-centre, the impeller must be submitted for design analysis, in which a designer reviews the component and decides whether it can be used. Each analysis costs approximately $66,900 per part
As well as allowing special cutters to be produced more quickly, the use of additive manufacturing enables more complex shapes to be generated, both for the external shape of the tooling and for the internal cooling channels.
