Advantages and application of 3D printing
Short-series production in 3d printing technology allows us to omit the creation of expensive injection moulds. The product in amount of a few dozen up to a few hundred pieces is ready in a few days. The technology allows us to produce ready-made details made of materials such as: ABS, PLA or PA, and also nylon. The short series with use of 3d printing are excellence solution for companies that want to fast react to market changes, continuously improve their products and have a fully control of the production growth, remaining the full viability and flexibility.
After creating a prototype and checking its correctness usually cames the time to starting short prototypes series or target production. According to the project, demands for models fluctuate between a dozen and a few hundreds of details (a short prototype series) or between a few hundreds and millions of pieces (a serial production)..
In order to reduce the costs and minimalize time of realisation for short prototype series we prepared some of covers for injection moulds
Such solution allows you to quickly produce low quantities of details as well as start a tiny production that cost unexpectedly few. The realisation time depending from detail’s complexity and quantity hesitates between 2 and 6 weeks. Additionally, the vivacity of mould inserts that are made of steel or aluminium considerably exceed the vivacity of moulds that are made of silicone or composites used in Vacuum Casting technologies. One set allows to produce even a few thousand details and they are not made of epoxy or polyurethane equivalents, but of final thermoplastic with final (not only almost the same) properties.
