The Benefits of Additive Manufactured Tooling – Watch the Webinar
Vacuum forming with conventional metal tooling can be expensive and comes with a long delivery time. Imagine if there was a better tooling method that can actually cut that cost and time nearly in half!
Catalysis Additive Tooling has developed a solution for low-cost 3D printed tooling that enables low volume production parts to be produced in half the time, and at half the cost of traditional aluminum tooling methods.
This webinar will address:
- Opportunities for cost and time savings
- Catalysis tooling compared to a Renwood tool
- Catalysis tooling background, such as tool finish, strength, thermal management
- Number of parts that can be produced from Catalysis tooling
- Tool modifications that can be achieved with Catalysis tooling
- The Catalysis Tooling deliverables: tool design, engineering, 3D printing, thermoforming process understanding, proprietary tool coating packages, tool post processing and finishing, base design, and tool assembly.
The webinar will also share case studies based on Catalysis’s tooling technology and customer testimonials.

Thermoforming Goes Digital – New Opportunities with HP Latex Inks – Watch the Webinar
HP Latex ink technology is enabling traditional, tried-and-true industrial plastics companies to keep their businesses relevant by adapting to a direct-to-substrate printing technology that gives them access to a deeper, wider product development capacity, faster go-to-market routes and efficiencies realized in materials, labor and capacity.
Digital solutions with such capability not only differentiate these companies from their competition but also enable them to provide new products and solutions – digitally decorating plastics with inks that are thermoformable allow for expansion into new markets with new products.

Replacing Steel with Thermoformed Plastics
A webinar for industrial designers and plastics engineers
Learn to identify when the benefits of thermoformed plastics outweigh fabricated steel. Two case studies review design, cost and speed to market and why thermoformed plastic was the optimal choice. A steel to plastic conversion guide is also presented to ensure the plastic part is functional and cost effective. Webinar length: approximately 60 minutes.
