NXT Factory, a part of the XPonentialWorks portfolio, has unveiled the final version of the QLS 350, a quantum laser sintering system designed for low and medium volume production for the injection molding industry. The QLS 350 is expected to give manufacturers significant savings on tooling costs, and provide production flexibility. The multiple beam delivery system produces 4X the print speed of traditional laser sintering and a comparable print speed to Multi-Jet Fusion printers.
With its removable, autonomously-guided build chamber for independent cool down, the QLS 350 delivers a polymer-based scalable alternative to traditional injection molding with full Industry 4.0 capabilities. The QLS-350 is designed for fully automated, 24/7 operation.
Fortify’s Digital Composite Manufacturing (DCM) platform pairs high-performance resins with fiber reinforcement that can be controlled at the voxel level. The process promises a faster route to durable injection mold tooling.
A wall of metal that looks solid is actually 90% dense, allowing gas to pass through. Mold venting is one application.
If you could rebuild a damaged or worn-out mold insert instead of replacing it with a new one, wouldn’t you?
