About the project
Injection molding is a molding process, where the respective material is liquefied (plasticized) and injected under pressure in an injection molding tool. In the tool, the material consolidates through cooling or a crosslinking reaction. The cavity of the tool determines the shape and the surface structure of the finished part. With this method directly usable parts can be produced inexpensively in large quantities. The toll cost accounts for a large part of the necessary investment. Polyjet printed tools can be used for small volume production (lifetime and size limited) parts to reduce the tool costs but still have access to many strength thermoplastic materials.
This technology is available in the co-creation space in Linz.
