Reduce Tooling Costs and Lead Times While Improving Quality

Epoxy and Silicone Molds


  • Tooling in days, not months
  • Reduces investment costs for short run production
  • Lower material costs than 3D Printing
  • Reusable tooling allows for many castings
  • Many available casting materials, including:  Urethane, epoxy, polymer, medical and food grade resins, plaster, and many other resins and composite materials

Injection Molds and Inserts


  • Injection mold tooling in days to weeks, not months
  • Very inexpensive part cost
  • Tool life from 10k+ unit from prototype tooling to hundreds of thousands of units from production tooling
  • Top quality aesthetic finish and mechanical properties compared to other Rapid Prototype technologies

Sand Casting Patterns


  • Least expensive way to fabricate quantities of small to large metal parts
  • Typical materials are aluminum, bronze, zinc and steel
  • Tooling can be produced in less than 1 - 2 weeks and cost a fraction of traditional methods
  • Capable suppliers of core boxes, follow boards, gates and risers and other necessary sand cast tooling

Investment Cast Patterns, Molds and Waxes


  • Highest quality of finish of all casting methods
  • Typical materials include aluminum, bronze and steel
  • Available tooling includes: master patterns, silicone rubber molds, and wax burnout patterns
  • Can direct print one-off or small batches of direct burnout patterns without investing in wax tooling

Vacuum and Thermoform Tooling


  • Heavy gauge production plastics available like ABS, Polyethylene, Polystyrene and Polycarbonate
  • Light gauge packaging plastics available like PET and Polystyrene
  • Can form parts up to 12 feet long
  • Prototype tooling available in as little as a couple of days
  • Production tooling is good for over 100,000 forms and is porous for highest part quality

Carbon Fiber, Fiberglass and Other Composite Tools


  • Decrease tooling and mold lead time compared to traditional methods
  • Increase complexity of design without increasing cost
  • Soluble cores available for hollow parts
  • Waxed finishes available for easy de-molding
  • Save money on prototype and production tools

Sheet Metal Stamping and Forming Tools


  • Very low cost tooling for small batches of sheet metal parts
  • Male and female tooling available for traditional two die stamping as well as single die hydro-forming
  • Tools delivered in a fraction of the time compared to traditional methods
  • Inexpensive and durable composite tooling available as castings from patterns

Robotic Arm End Effectors


  • Custom tooling that fits any part with complex internal geometries like vacuum channels
  • Reduce weight, inertia and material waste during fabrication
  • Simplified designs are easier to engineer, manufacture and assemble - cutting down on cost and time for tooling fabrication
  • Improve tool life by cutting down on breakable components

Molded Paper Pulp Packaging Tools


  • Get high accuracy tooling for a fraction of the cost of machined tools
  • Prototype tooling can also be used as permanent tooling good for thousands or even tens of thousands of molds
  • Tools can be turned around in days instead of weeks
  • Tools can be used as patterns to make tooling for multiple lines or facillities

Custom Jigs, Clamps, Fixtures and Other Tooling


  • Most miscellaneous tooling can be fabricated rapidly and for less cost using additive manufacturing
  • Use existing CAD data for the part to design mating tooling
  • Quickly test for geometric conformity or hold parts for post operations or inspection
