Design and Print Tools and Molds at a Fraction of the Cost
Traditional manufacturing methods are driven by CNC machines and injection molding machines, both of which require tools to be made, iterated, manufactured, and shipped. This entire process can take months, even with the best suppliers on the planet. With the Essentium High Speed Extrusion (HSE™) 3D Printing Platform, skip over the lead time and tooling costs, and create highly accurate molds, that can be tweaked on the fly. These 3D-printed tools can be printed in a matter of days at a fraction of the cost of traditional tooling and casting methods.
WHY HIGH SPEED EXTRUSION?
Cut Print Time in Half
The HSE 280i HT 3D Printer features true independent dual extruders, allowing users to print two halves of a mold at once, cutting print time in half.
Skip Lead Time
Traditional tooling manufacturing can take months to arrive. Skip the lead time and design and print tools in a matter of hours.
Reduce Capital Expenses
CapEx costs such as tooling material storage, creation of the tool, and the storage of the tool increase with every product order. With AM manufacturers can directly produce parts on the fly.
BOTTLE BLOW MOLD
Discover the benefits and weaknesses of using additive manufactured molds within the blow molding process and the reasoning behind material selection.
Essentium PA-CF is a carbon fiber-infused polyamide filament specially formulated for additive manufacturing. Essentium PA-CF provides exceptional strength, durability, thermal stability, and stiffness that is customary of carbon fiber materials, and is readily printable with a wide processing window, providing a highly accessible engineering-grade solution or open platform and even open-air printers.
HSE 280i HT 3D PRINTER
The HSE 280i HT 3D Printer is the first industrial 3D printer equipped with true independent dual extruders, allowing users to print two halves of molds at once.
HSE 180•ST 3D PRINTER
At five-15x faster than the competition, HSE 180•ST 3D Printer is ideal for iterating and producing molds and tools with speed and strength, at scale.
Essentium’s unique High Speed Extrusion technology magnifies the power of additive manufacturing by enabling speed and strength, at scale, to meet the volume production needs that other 3D printers just cannot match. In fact, the Essentium HSE 3D Printer was designed for industrial use by manufacturing and semiconductor professionals who could not find all the […]
Much has been written about how additive manufacturing can be a replacement for injection molding technology to mass produce end-use parts at scale. While it is true that advances in 3D printing have moved the quantity needle farther to the right, especially when using high speed extrusion technology on a fleet of 3D printers operating […]
