The process which uses Rapid Prototyping model as a pattern to create a mold readily is rapid tooling. It fabricates a tool for preparing less volume of prototypes and is distinct from conventional tooling as herein tooling time is much shorter than for a conventional tool. Also, the tooling cost is much less and tolerance is wider. However, the tool life is less.
At 3E-PD, we create tools which meet all your needs and requirements of the product. We specialize in the production of high quality, low cost rapid prototypes. Given the fact that we have a wide range of technologies at our disposal, we can produce prototypes for engineering, sales models and to test form, fit and function. We aim at strict scheduling for swift and timely delivery and professional customer support in multiple languages. As Rapid Tooling is a process that which is resultant of combining Rapid Prototyping techniques with conventional tooling practices in order to produce a mold swiftly or parts of a functional model from CAD data, our experts are capable of carrying it out finely. Moreover, at 3E-PD, you can expect it to be done in less time and at a lower cost relative to traditional machining methods. Get in touch with us for Rapid Tooling services of highest quality.
