For Both Desktop and Industrial Molding Machines
Injection molds fabricated with Formlabs 3D printers have been tested with both desktop and industrial injection molding machines using a wide range of pressures, temperatures, and materials.
A Complete Desktop Ecosystem
With a Formlabs 3D printer and desktop molding machine, it’s easy to get started 3D print injection molds in-house. Quickly test, validate, and iterate prototypes, produce pre-production parts in your final production material, and even manufacture end-use parts in low volumes with limited equipment and training.
Production on the Factory Floor
Grow your business and take on more small volume jobs by leveraging 3D printing to produce injection molds. Whether you outsource low-volume tooling or machine inhouse, 3D printing can be used on the factory floor to affordable and efficiently fabricate injection molds while allocating skilled resources elsewhere.
Integrate into Any Injection Molding Workflow
Formlabs complete, easy-to-use ecosystem can seamlessly be integrated into any injection molding workflow. Save time and money on low-volume injection molding projects by leveraging the benefits of 3D printed molds to quickly and affordably produce hundreds to thousands of parts in traditional thermoplastics.
