Materials for Manufacturing Tooling Applications


To be able to manufacture tooling components we have chosen materials from all technologies Proto3000 offers. Create durable and highly precise tools for any project with our lineup of wide material selection. Fused Deposition Modeling production-grade Thermoplastics are rigid and durable materials. High performance engineering thermoplastics, such as the ULTEM 9085 have heat resistance capabilities. You can produce jigs, fixtures, tool masters and even low volume production tooling in only a few hours with our FDM materials.

The ABS and Somos N.E.X.T. Photopolymers and the SLS Powder Based Resins are used to create smooth surface tools for high precision. Materials used for Direct Metal Laser Sintering are extremely durable and possess high temperature resistance features to create sturdy and long-lasting tooling components.
