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 on Desktop Metal’s efficiency from these initial tests include 90% cost-per-part savings and demonstrate the potential for the Studio System in tooling applications.
