CDME has the resources to print tools for injection molding, dies, stamping, hydroforming, and die casting. Manufacturers can now not only print parts, but they can print their own tools.
What is Agile Tooling?
Agile Tooling is a term used to describe the design and fabrication of manufacturing-related tools such as dies, molds, patterns, jigs and fixtures using the best technologies in a configuration that maximizes the tool performance and minimize manufacturing time and cost.
Agile Tooling allows manufacturers and OEMs to design based on performance needs without fear of delayed prototyping timelines or exorbitant costs. A fully functional Agile Tooling Laboratory consists of CNC milling, turning and routing equipment, various additive manufacturing platforms (FDM, SLS, SLA, DLS, etc.), hydroforming, vacuum forming, die casting, stamping, injection molding and welding equipment.
