Case Study: Injection Molding Firm Identifies 90% Savings With Desktop Metal 3D Printer

Mold cavity insert built on Desktop Metal Studio System

Just out from Desktop Metal is a new case study featuring an injection molding firm that identified a 90% savings with the Studio System from Desktop Metal. Built-Rite Tool & Die is a mold-making and design firm in Massachusetts. Challenges with injection mold manufacturing include high tooling costs, extended lead times, and complex designs of mold assembly components. Built-Rite assessed the technology fit of the Studio System, the office-friendly metal 3D printing system from Desktop Metal, to improve operations and evaluated part performance of a printed mold cavity insert. Findings from these initial tests include 90% cost-per-part savings and demonstrate the potential for the Studio System in tooling applications.
