Rapid manufacturing technologies. Part 1: Optimization and improvement of rapid tooling technology-Coproinmold
Making pieces directly from a CAD model is considered an important method for reduction of production time and manufacturing costs of new products. Rapid prototyping techniques are a way of producing conceptual models in a quick and simple fashion. Rapid tooling is the method of producing tools of general use, aimed specifically at obtaining small and medium series of pieces. This article studies the optimization of Coproinmold technology for obtaining molds for plastic injection.
