Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, adds speed and agility to your manufacturing process

Manufacturing tools, such as jigs, fixtures, drill guides, and check gauges can be quickly and cost-effectively produced with Stratasys 3D printing solutions. 3D printing can eliminate machining or tooling, shaving time and money per component.

Reduce Time

  • No waiting for machining or tooling
  • Just in time manufacturing - Components can be made on demand reducing inventory requirements
  • Bring production of jigs, fixtures, and tooling masters in-house

Reduce Cost

  • Eliminate or reduce machining and tooling costs
  • Fortus Manufacturing Tool ImagesCustomers realize ROI after just a few jobs by eliminating the need for tooling
  • No cost-penalty for manufacturing complex geometries

Other Benefits

  • Design complex geometries with no tooling constraints
  • On-the-fly design changes and enhancements can be made during production cycles

When to Use

When does it make sense to produce manufacturing tools with Stratasys 3D Production Systems?

  • Low production volume
  • Complex part design
  • Near-term design changes are possible
  • High start-up investment is needed
  • Need for production to begin before tooling is ready (bridge tooling or bridge-to-manufacturing)

Examples

Tooling and Patterns

  • Pulp Moulding Tooling(concept development & bridge tools & Low Volume Production)
  • Thermoforming
  • Tooling and Manufacturing Estimating Visual Aid
  • Investment Casting Patterns
  • Jigs,Fixtures, Assembly Aids
  • Foundry Patterns - Sand Casting
  • Injection Moulding
  • Blow Moulding
  • Serrogate Parts
