toolcraft develops 3D-printed mould

A new age of injection moulding and mould making is dawning

toolcraft unites several divisions under one roof. An in-house project conducted with our partner Siemens demonstrates how these lines of business work together in a mutually beneficial way. The starting point was a mould for manufacturing a plastic component for the optical industry. The opportunities created by 3D metal printing allow new avenues to be explored and moulds to be completely re-imagined. The result was a mould with an optimised topology, which is not only easier to manufacture, but also significantly improves the process of producing the plastic component. Read more in the case study.
