In this blog post, we highlight a featured case study published by Desktop Metal about an injection molding firm who investigates the use of its Studio System for a quick-turn application.


FEATURED 3D PRINTING METAL CASE STUDY

For Built-Rite, the Studio System (available from Fathom) introduces the ability to make quick-turn mold assembly components with a process that is far less labor-intensive than other equipment in their machine shop and more cost-competitive than a third-party prototyping firm. The system allows to realize the benefits of additive manufacturing—including reduced cost-per-part and lead time and the ability to print complex designs—to improve operations without relying on third-party vendors. With closed-cell infill, Built-Rite can lightweight mold assembly components while minimizing material usage without impacting wear resistance required for tooling.
