Most common Prototype Tooling options
There are many options available when it comes to prototype or rapid tooling. For example:
- SLA/SLS Technology
- Urethane Cast/Mold
- Soft Tooling
- Hard Tooling
Key differences between Prototype Tooling and Productive Tooling
- Quality of production
- Total time
Benefits of Prototype Tooling
It is one of the most valuable ways to get a personal hands-on inspection for tooling. You will be able to produce limited amount of parts for testing the functionality of the tools. You will also get a good precision for the parts that the tooling methods yield.
