|FDM Ancillary Tooling for Composite Fabrication|
FDM has been proven to be a valuable and disruptive solution for composite fabrication tooling. In addition to layup mould tools, FDM technology offers significant advantages for ancillary tools used in secondary operations such as trimming, drilling, assembly, bonding and inspection. The benefits include reduced lead time and cost, design simplification, and ease of fabrication and use.
|Business Considerations for 3D Printing|
High fabrication costs, long lead times and the cost to carry inventory don’t need to be the rule of the day when it comes to making production tooling. 3D printed tooling provides an alternative that can reduce or eliminate these pain points, so it pays to consider the benefits this technology offers.
|3D Printing vc CNC Machining|
In many ways, 3D printing is the opposite of CNC milling. Most notably, the factors that influence time and cost are quite different. Additionally, the size, shape and configuration of suitable or ideal parts for 3D printing are a reversal from the ideal for CNC machining. To choose between the two, a thorough understand of both processes is necessary.
