It Can Be Cut By 18 Hours With 3D Printing Molds
Nov 06, 2018

the speed of the whole process is amazing. With our Objet500 Connex 3D manufacturing system, we can make cavity parts for the polymer in six hours, which used to take 24 hours. More and more companies have been experimenting with more advanced 3D printing techniques to streamline the mold making process.

HASCO is one of Europe's leading molding service and mold manufacturing companies and is considered to be the author of European mold standards. The company recently developed a rapid mold change system that allows injection molding manufacturers to quickly and efficiently replace molds to reduce the time and cost of their reset machines. In particular, the molds printed with Stratasys' 3D printers make the whole process cheaper, allowing for quicker and cheaper prototyping, manufacturing of samples, or making small batches at reasonable cost

The injection mold is printed using Stratasys' Objet500 Connex 3D printer, and the mold itself USES the company's ultra-durable digital ABS material. The Objet500 Connex is not only one of the most advanced multi-material 3D printers on the market, but also a very fast printing machine. By 3D printing molds instead of using aluminum for milling, the time taken to make molds is greatly reduced, and prototypes and molds can be adjusted quickly and economically. HASCO says that when 3D printing molds are combined with the K3500 rapid change mold system, a new low-cost benchmark is set for prototyping and low-volume injection molding

The speed of the whole process is astonishing. Using our Objet500 Connex 3D manufacturing system, we were able to make cavity parts for the polymer within six hours, which previously required 24 hours. Through trials and tests of standardized HASCO products and advanced Stratasys 3D printing technology, it has been demonstrated that this innovative and rapid technology can be applied in the injection molding process. For small batch prototypes produced with final product materials, rapid mold change using 3D printed cavities is a fast and economical alternative to traditional methods. Dirk Paulmann, executive vice President of HASCO, confirmed.

Paulmann says customers are looking for solutions that enable them to deliver prototypes quickly, economically and efficiently, as the product comes to market with shorter cycles and fewer production volumes. Compared with the traditional metal or aluminum insert, the new method can enable the mold manufacturer to achieve flexible and rapid production and exchange of the mold, which makes the efficiency and profitability higher. By combining HASCO's long experience in traditional mold manufacturing with Stratasys' advanced technology in 3D printing injection mold, the best of both worlds is the future of prototype and small batch production.
