The new issue of Proto Labs Journal is out and includes a cover story focusing on the digital transformation of injection molding. A related, second feature story explores the pros and cons of printed plastic molds.
The cover story reports on how automating the front-end of the manufacturing process has reinvented injection molding, and served as a game-changer for the entire industry.
The related feature, “3D-Printed Molds,” advises product designers, engineers and developers to take a careful look at part finish, size, design capabilities, mold longevity considerations and cost when comparing printed plastic molds to aluminum tooling.
Elsewhere in the Journal, look for our Eye on Innovation feature, which highlights cool new products and technology you should know about.
