Design of FIM mold (IGUS Bearing captions)

IGUS Bearing captions Freeform Injection Molding (FIM) combines the benefits of additive manufacturing and injection molding, offering design freedom with complex geometries and numerous rubber and plastic material options, including metals and ceramics. The greatest advantage of FIM is that tool inserts with different features can be printed in one batch, making it easier to iteratively test both part geometry and mold features. Testing different gate and vent sizes or location is now possible at reduced tooling lead times and cost. For more tutorials on FIM technology visit our YouTube channel.
