3D Printing Vs Custom Mould: Which Is Better For You?by Jacob Williams Hqmould - Plastic Mould Factory
When it comes to creating new sample product or prototype
then you as an entrepreneur or engineer or a product developer can take the
help of either custom mould or 3D printing. Who is already belong to plastic manufacturing
industry they are well aware of these two
things, but most of them which don’t know is the basic difference of them and
when to use the custom moulding and when one should take the help of the 3D
printing for the production process.
3D Printing Vs Custom Mould
Injection moulding is the process where the liquefied plastic is poured into a mould which has the 3D negative image of your device. On the other hand in 3D printing technology, the physical qualities of your products are loaded into a 3D printing machine with the help of CAD drawing. Then the printing machine builds up the part depending on the qualities loaded into the machine. But before start using any of these products you must learn the basic differences between these two processes in detail.
· Cost: installing a custom mould machine is typically take hundreds of thousands of dollars whereas the price of a 3D printing machine can cost you only a few thousand dollars.
· Volume: when it comes to mass productions then you can simply have no choice other than the custom injection moulding machines as the 3D printing machines are not capable of producing such a large scale of goods.
· Time: the manufacturing of plastic products with injection mould is also very less and within an hour you can easily produce an ample number of products whereas 3D printing takes fairly higher time to produce one product.
Thus if you are looking for the mass production then injection moulding machine is the clear winner for you. You can get in touch with HQ Mould for top quality injection moulding.
