    A common misconception about 3D printing is that you can use the same CAD design for either plastic or metal. In reality, the processes are very different so design changes will be required. The type of modifications needed will depend on the type of metal 3D printing process being used. We will focus on powder bed fusion, which is what we use at Star Rapid.

    Plastic injection molding accounts for about 80% of the durable plastic items we find every day. Injection molding uses a mold or die made from aluminum or steel. The mold consists of a core side and a cavity side that is placed into a plastic injection molding machine. This machine heats the raw plastic resin pellets until they’re molten, injects them into the empty cavity of the mold under great pressure, and then opens to eject the finished part.

    There are many types of pressure involved when making a plastic injection molded part. We’ve explained the importance of clamping pressure, so now let’s look at injection, holding and back pressure. It’s important for a product developer to understand how these forces work together and ultimately how balancing these forces affects part quality, pieces per hour and your product cost.

    There are thousands of thermoforming resins, and each has unique chemical and mechanical properties. In this study, one of the parts was made with 30% glass-filled PEEK. PEEK is a high-temperature engineering plastic used in automotive, aerospace and medical applications. The addition of glass fibers makes it even stronger and more durable. When using PEEK, it’s important to know that you must use the correct mold tool steel.
