PepsiCo and Formlabs Discuss In-House Rapid Tooling With 3D Printing
April 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Most traditional manufacturing processes like injection molding, thermoforming, stretch blow molding, or casting require custom tooling to create end-use parts.
However, tooling comes with high upfront costs and weeks or months-long lead times from service providers, significantly slowing down product development.
Incorporating in-house rapid tooling such as 3D printed molds, patterns, and dies into the product development process empowers businesses to validate the design and material choice with functional prototypes before transitioning to mass production and provides an affordable means to produce custom or limited series of end-use parts.
In this webinar, Juliette Combe from Formlabs will discuss the possibilities of in-house rapid tooling with 3D printing, while Max Rodriguez and Thangthip Tekanil from PepsiCo will explain how they have internalized this process in their rapid prototyping department for bottle and nozzle design, among other things.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- General workflow and method for using 3D printed rapid tooling
- The business impact of bringing this in-house
- Detailed breakdown of how PepsiCo uses this process internally
Register today to hear from this trio of incredible speakers – they will also be taking questions towards the end of the webinar.
