"Applying Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) to Reduce Tooling Costs and Tooling Delivery Time by 50% for Production of Functional Parts. (Parts made the customers production materials)"  

Presented by: Darrell Stafford, President/CEO, Catalysis Additive Tooling

3D printing is more than 30 years old.  Combining 3D printing with long established conventional manufacturing processes while taking an agnostic approach to the application of 3D printing technologies can create a disruptive change to how functional, production level parts are manufactured.   Understanding the limitations of 3D printing for tooling is key to a successful implementation.  In this presentation we will review project examples and customer testimonials for tooling and parts for

  •  Vacuum Forming
  •  Plastic Injection
  • Metal Forming
