Product development professionals who work with prototyping and readying those prototypes for production suffer from the misconception that additive manufacturing (3D printing) and injection molding are competing technologies. In fact, the two technologies, can be used in tandem. The benefits of using both – instead of choosing one – can help your team attain unmatched benefits in several areas: material usage, rapid prototyping, faster production, cost-effectiveness, and the manufacture of challenging part geometries. This webinar will help you understand how to use each method to its greatest advantage; register now!

New Guide to Gating Systems: Improve Plastic Parts Mold Performance
In plastic injection molding, gating systems impact the cost, quality, and performance of the parts being molded. Optimizing the system for size and location is essential for achieving structural, operational, and cosmetic expectations. Even when you work with an experienced partner to design your molds, you’ll learn a lot from this 18-page guide. You’ll gain new tips to ask better questions, make better choices, and get better molds, parts, and improve the performance of your injection molding process. You’ll learn how gate size and location can impact your part design and final product; how to optimize the design and performance of your gates, runners and sprues…and much more. Download it today for a good read and a valuable “keeper” resource. What you will learn: How gating systems impact the quality & cost of injection-molded parts How to balance gate size and type with material and part complexity Tips to ensure proper gate location and optimize part design Six common types of gates and how to choose the right one
