PVD Coatings Solve Common 3D-Printed Mold and Part Problems

The right surface modification solution can alleviate a few common additive manufacturing pain points that typically require creating new molds or parts.

Rethink Plastics Manufacturing in January 2020 Issue

This issue breaks open the conversation about moldmaking versus additive manufacturing.

What A Former Moldmaker Has Learned About AM: Leverage Simplicity and Let It Scale

The once-again independent Linear AMS is now more focused on additive manufacturing than ever before.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory, AddUp Partner on AM for Tooling Applications

Oak Ridge National Laboratory and AddUp have partnered to further additive moldmaking technology for tooling applications.

Building Confidence in Additive Manufacturing for Tooling

New potential for mold tooling applications is reached with custom-designed materials for additive manufacturing.

In Automotive, Is Additive Manufacturing an Answer for Die Cast Tooling?

The largest high-pressure die cast tool builder in North America is 3D printing die inserts and water jackets for major automakers. It’s a tough sell, but one company is succeeding — and it’s just getting started.

Injection Molding with the Geometric Complexity of 3D Printing

The Freeform Injection Molding (FIM) process from Addifab allows for injection molding resins to be processed into shapes not otherwise possible.

Video: Controlled Porosity Can Be Functional Advantage Realized via 3D Printing

A wall of metal that looks solid is actually 90% dense, allowing gas to pass through. Mold venting is one application.

Video: Metal AM Affects Plastics Production via Conformal Cooling

Additive manufacturing allows cooling channels within mold tooling inserts to follow the form of the tool rather than being straight drilled holes. Here’s why this matters.

Additive Manufacturing Workshop for Plastics 2019 Recap

The Additive Manufacturing Workshop for Plastics, held during Amerimold 2019, offered a platform for industry experts and mold builders to discuss how AM can complement injection molding and what it takes to transition from prototyping to high-volume production.
