Composite Tooling

Produce complex sacrificial tooling in days rather than weeks or months

Save time and cost while maintaining complexity and detail

Whether your application requires reusable layup mold tooling or sacrificial tooling for complex, trapped-tool geometries, additive manufacturing simplifies the fabrication of composite parts while providing unparalleled design freedom. High temperature, cost effective tools can be produced in days, compared to the weeks or even months required for traditional tooling. Our materials take ¼ of the time compared to conventional machining – even for complex designs – to produce printed tools.
