Watch Somos® and Design Worlds free webinar 'Break out of the traditional mold' for the latest in Rapid Tooling.
Testing a new design before costly tooling is created can save companies time and money. For many years, the only process available to create injection molded parts for testing and design verification was to “soft tool” using machined aluminium. The cost and typical lead times involved are often expensive and can take many weeks.
Thanks to composite materials like Somos® PerFORM, engineers can use stereolithography’s quick and accurate technology to rapidly create molds which are capable of producing real injection molded parts that can reduce cost and time in the product development cycle.
