NICE Rapid introduces injection molding 3D printing services
Increasing the speed of production and innovative capabilities of high-performance materials related to injection molding
According to newsfile, NICE Rapid, a specialist in injection molding and rapid tooling, has introduced 3D printing as part of the company’s service offerings related to injection molding – increasing the speed of production and innovative capabilities of high-performance materials.
As we already know – manufacturing has traditionally been expensive, time-consuming, and wasteful. Even though additive manufacturing addresses the majority of these problems, it has size and batch automation restrictions that make it challenging to use on a broader scale. NICE Rapid intends to bridge these gaps with its new 3D printing services.
There is also a high demand for 3D printing technology combined with the rising demand for high-performance materials from industries including automotive, aerospace, military, and medical. As 3D printing for injection molding is increasingly used for medium-to-high volume parts, NICE Rapid aims to provides the easiest way to source high-quality 3D printed prototypes and production parts.
Using 3D printing technology such as stereolithography (SLA) – the technology used at NICE Rapid – for injection molding is typically more affordable than conventional injection molding techniques. This is primarily thanks to the fact that 100% computer-controlled production methods require less raw material to manufacture the same part, as well as less time.
