The Role of 3D Printed Molds in the Injection Molding Industry.

The majority of plastic products in the world today are manufactured by injection molding. With the right combination of 3D printers and injection molding machines, it is possible to create molds in-house to produce small, functional parts in production plastics.For low-volume production (approximately 10-100 parts), 3D-printed molds save time and money. They also enable a more agile manufacturing approach, allowing engineers and designers to easily modify molds and continue to iterate on their designs with low lead times and cost.
