Metal 3d Printed Mold – SHINING 3D Additive Manufacturing Solutions
Metal 3D printing nowadays is a great complement in injection molding. 3D digitizing and printing allows for design and manufacturing molds with complex conformal cooling channel.
What Can You Do With SHINING 3D’s Metal 3D Printer Solution?
Turn complex geometries from vision to reality at ease
Metal 3D Printer enables the production of complex shapes which can not be manufactured by means of traditional fabrication methods. The geometric complexity does not come at a higher price due to the additive nature of the technology. There is no difference in the cost for optimized parts and simple parts designed for traditional manufacturing, since less material is used in the additive method additional cost can be saved.
Save start-up costs
Custom tools, like injection molds can come at a very high price. Since metal 3D Printing is not dependent from such kind of tooling start-up costs basically don´t exist. The only cost parameters of a 3D Printed part are the amount of material used, the printing time and the post-processing required to achieve the desired finish of the printed part.
Customization at it´s best
3D printing enables customization of each printed part at ease. In order to achieve customization of every single printed parts, users only need to modify the digital 3D model. Thus, the user´s specific needs can be met without impacting the manufacturing costs.
Prototype with incomparable cost-effectivity
Your material is your choice
Materials like plastic and metal are commonly used for 3D printing applications in a broad range of industries today. There are also specially developed materials available for all kinds of customized applications. SHINING 3D metal 3D printers are capable of adjusting in machine settings and process parameters individually as well as a wide selection of the material supplier.
