Injection moulded parts can be brought to market faster with lower project costs and more complex geometries thanks to HP Multi-Jet Fusion, says Industrial Plastic Fabrications. The firm will be highlighting the HP Multi-Jet Fusion at Southern Manufacturing 2020, as part of its extensive range of specialist plastics design and manufacturing capabilities.
When weighed up against high entry costs for injection moulds and the difficulty in correcting mistakes, it’s hard not to consider additive manufacturing as an alternative to traditional injection moulded parts, says the firm. IPF assists its customers through the design and manufacturing process using custom designs with improvements in function and aesthetics. Designers and manufacturers have the flexibility of optimising their designs for purpose and functionality, not just manufacturing method.
Established in 1969, IPF specialises in plastic machining, fabrication and 3D printing. Production is geared toward bespoke plastic parts, batch and prototype manufacturing.
