Rapid Molding Finishing Processes / /

Once a part has been manufactured using rapid molding, it transitions to the finishing stage. Finishing may be purely for cosmetic reasons but may also be used to enhance physical properties. Here are some of the finishing processes offered by Fathom.

SURFACE FINISH GUIDE TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Standard No Machine Mark Tool Marks Removed Low Cosmetic
SPI-C1 600 Stone Low Polish Parts
SPI-B1 600 Grit Paper Medium Polish Parts
SPI-A2 Grade #6 Diamond High Polish Parts
SPI-A1 Grade #3 Lens or Mirror
IM-1 Light Bead Blast Need 1 Degree Draft Angle
IM-2 Medium Bead Blast Need 1.5 Degree Draft Angle
IM-3 Heavy Bead Blast Need 3 Degree Draft Angle

Rapid Production Tooling / /

One of the most critical factors when calculating the per piece cost of a part is the type of production toolingand features. Production tools must process, cool, and eject parts rapidly. There are multiple factors considered when optimizing cycles. Our team has mastered the techniques of producing prototype components over many years of experimentation and success. We can help you with small or medium-size production tooling. Tooling capacity is dependent upon piece part size. We can accommodate cavitations ranging from 1 to 16 cavities. We offer a variety of mold base materials, from aluminum to stainless steel.

Short Run Molding / /

Our team is highly efficient at making mold changes because we take advantage of quick-change tooling methods. We optimize every aspect of short-run work by using special molding procedures. Superior value is delivered to our short-run customers by purchasing and drying in small lots, scheduling efficiently and monitoring shop floor flow.

Rapid Molding Quotes FAQs / /

Q: Does Fathom offer injection molding?

A: Yes, Fathom offers injection molding services.

Q: What is injection molding?

A: Injection molding is a manufacturing process commonly used for plastic parts. Molten plastic is injected into a two-part mold using high pressure during injection molding. Once the part has cooled inside the mold, it is ejected. The part may or may not require a secondary finish.

Q: How much does rapid molding cost?

A: The cost of rapid molding depends on the complexity of the part, part size, tooling cost, equipment setup and configuration, materials used, and more. Contact Fathom today for a quote.

Q: Why are rapid molds so expensive?

A: Rapid molds are less expensive than production molds because they are only built to last thousands of cycles, not millions. They are still well-designed and built from quality materials but serve a different purpose when compared to production molds.

Q: How do you calculate rapid molding costs?

A: The cost of rapid molding depends on the complexity of the part, part size, tooling cost, equipment setup and configuration, materials used, and more. Contact Fathom today for a quote.

Q: How long do rapid molds last?

A: Rapid molds are designed for rapid prototyping, producing thousands of parts.
