The role and value of 3D printing in injection molding and adoption has historically lagged. Application conversion for production requires specific criteria that can be attained with education, certification and information. With speeds and material variety increasing, these applications are becoming more and more lucrative for the 3D industry, and there are significant missed opportunities.
M Holland is the largest plastic injection molding distribution company in North America, with over 5,000 molders in variable market segments. Their specialization in 3D printing for the injection molding industry gives them a unique insight on the application conversion process, along with the needs and requirements to further this adoption for the industry. Using their unviased evaluation of materials and processes, they help customers identify the right 3D adoption path for them.
- Understand the disconnect between the opportunities for the production in 3d printing and has created addition barrier.
- There are current applications in the injection molding industry that will eventually be produced in order to follow the trends.
