Moldmaker Experiments with Hollow Mold Inserts as Alternative to Conformal Cooling

A plastics manufacturer with in-house moldmaking explores a different option for applying additive manufacturing to making mold tooling.


Additive Manufacturing Makes Subtractive Cutting Tools

Mapal reaps the benefits of additive and subtractive manufacturing with its QTD drills.


IIoT: The Next Step in Mold-Building Efficiency

Taking advantage of “digital threads” of data can help moldmakers compete in an evolving manufacturing environment.


Additive Manufacturing’s Assist to ID Grinding

By addressing a long-standing coolant-delivery problem, an additively grown nozzle enhanced the effectiveness of ID grinding in a complementary role.


Precision Without Deposition

Is it possible to 3D print with carbon fiber fabric? It is, except that “printing” is not the right word. This additive process builds parts by stacking the carbon fiber sheets. The result is composite parts that don’t need tooling—but are strong en...


A Layered Approach to Boosting Business and the Industry

Faustson Tool uses its pioneering spirit to carefully take on metals additive manufacturing one step at a time, and today the company is committed to educating and supporting industry and its academic partners with this technology.


Material Improvement

In addition to the geometric freedom, additive manufacturing also provides the freedom to use metals that would be difficult to apply another way. Deka Research & Development is exploring both freedoms as it seeks to create a power source that could...


Easing the Entry into Additive Manufacturing

With funding from America Makes, Optomec and MachMotion worked together to develop a retrofit additive manufacturing system for machining centers.


One-Offs Without Tradeoffs

Does it have to be expensive to produce a one-off part? Does the one-off have to fall short of the manufactured part’s properties? A Boston-area 3D printer maker has an idea for how to produce components that are both low quantity and industrial qu...


Incorporating 3D Printing

Technologies that give moldmakers the ability to test out a couple different designs before investing in the final tool.
