The plastic industry is very much expansive and productive in its very usual ways. So every day a lot of things are happening around in these industries through its manufactures and processor companies. Here we will discuss the latest news of Plastics industry and it is as follows.
The 3D printed mould is making bulk of profits for WHALE industry
Now a manufacturer of water and heating systems for mobile applications says that” it has slashed its time for the production of injection mould tools for the prototype parts up to 97%”. This process has been become speeded up and profitable for the manufactures due to the introduction of “Stratasys 3D printing” tools in the making process.
Companies like WHALE present in Northern Ireland says that the 3D printing injection mould tools use the Objet 350 Connex Multi-material 3D Printer, that particularly saves the raw material, production costs and time. As a result, the R& D department is able to use the tool for the whole process during the day time and it significantly reduces the production costs and time. The 3D printer prints the moulds in the overnight and prepares the test report till the morning with utilizing the minimum amount of raw materials.

The injection mould here is a 3D printed product that uses the Stratasys digital ABS materials that normally feasible for low volume part production resisting the high temperature & toughness. With the help of this tool, the company is able to give “rapid prototype service” to the external customers including the aerospace and automotive industries. As a result of this polypropylene and polypropylene glass-filled plastic product can be easily supplied to the above cited industries.
With satisfying results of this latest technology, the head of R&D department of WHALE company states the following lines for the press conference “We have already seen the technology takes months off our product development process and that in turn minimizes risk. In fact, I estimate that we’ve shortened our R&D process by up to 35 percent with Stratasys 3D printing solutions. Add that on top of the 20 percent were already saving in terms of our design work – well for me, it’s fantastic.”
Another sales manager at Stratasys states: this is a revolutionary discovery for the plastic industry and quoted the following comment “we are seeing an increasing number of customers exploring the potential that 3D printed injection mould tools offers.” In addition to the dramatic cost and time saving potential, our Digital ABS tools enable companies to produce parts in the real end-product material, ready to test even in the prototyping phase.
