Why Fortify for 3D Printed Tooling?

Fortify’s 3D printed molds are reinforced with ceramic fiber, resulting in much higher strength, stiffness, temperature stability, and toughness than other 3D printed molds. 

Fortify 3D printed molds deliver:

  • Molded parts in less than a week
  • Molds that cost $100’s not $1000’s
  • Ability to mold engineering plastics like Ultem, PEEK & PSU
  • Complex patterns directly at no extra cost – no need for EDM
  • Side pulls, complex parting lines, and even undercuts can be implemented
  • Porous molds for paper pulp packaging
  • High precision and fine surface finish

Rugged, Fast Turn Molds for Various Molding Applications

The Fortify Flux One 3D Printer delivers fast turn molds for various molding applications, including:

  • Injection molding
  • Low-pressure molding 
  • Thermoforming 
  • Compression molding applications

Fortify has developed a novel approach to injection molding using 3D printed inserts. By reinforcing the 3D printed parts with ceramic fiber, tools are able to withstand the rigors of the injection molding process, provided that users modify their procedures a bit from their experience with steel and aluminum tools.

Setting the New Standard for 3D Printed Molds

Fortify’s 3D printed tooling provides molders the time and cost benefits of 3D printing while prototyping in end-use material. The advantages of using Fortify’s 3D printed molds are that inserts can be ready to use within a few days and at a fraction of the cost of machined aluminum or steel tools. 

See how Fortify’s 3D printed molds have helped companies develop quick-turn prototypes at a fraction of the cost, without sacrificing quality or performance.
