TEAM Rapid, as a leading Low Volume Manufacturer in China, we specialize in helping you to reduce initial investment and decrease risk to produce new product cost-effectively through Low Volume Manufacturing Strategies, 3D Printing is one of the good solutions…
Injection mold is used for rapid prototyping and to build parts in low to high volume. It is used to build part in thousand units. There are many Rapid Tooling Applications built by injection molding. For example bottle caps, medical syringes, lego bricks and more.
3D printing can save the lead time from months to weeks and days. Functional, testable, 3D Printing Low Volume Production can be done faster than before. Testing prototypes made by 3D printing process can be used to test impact resistance, chemical resistance and flexibility. Additive manufacturing is quick as the tools can be made by 3D printing in a short time.
Direct tooling and indirect tooling are the two main Types Of Rapid Tooling. Both of them have their own advantages and disadvantages. Some designers prefer direct rapid tooling process as they will get the many benefits. And others prefer indirect rapid tooling process. Rapid tooling allows manufacturer to make a tool or mold in a short time:
