High Precision Shaping Capabilities

Share This Post

Mantle has announced the release and availability of its High Precision Shaping package.

The new package expands the capabilities of Mantle’s hybrid metal 3D printing technology. The package enables tool rooms to automate more of their toolmaking processes by producing sharp corners and edges without costly and time-consuming EDM operations. 

Mantle’s High Precision Shaping package includes:

  • 0.006″ and 0.010″ ball mill cutting tools, enabling radii under 0.003″, comparable to sinker EDM.
  • An update to our software, which automatically produces machining toolpaths and eliminates the need for any CAM programming. 
  • A 70 per cent improvement in feature sharpness, allowing for finer feature creation and an expanded range of geometries compatible with the TrueShape process.

By eliminating the need for EDM and other toolmaking operations, Mantle’s High-Precision Shaping package helps tool rooms reduce the time required to produce mold tools by up to 75%.

As Eric Derner, from Mantle customer Nicolet Plastics, comments, “Mantle allows us to offer production-grade tooling to our customers in prototype time. With Mantle’s H13 tool steel and new High Precision Shaping capabilities, we can print tools in-house and deliver complex moulded parts to our customers weeks faster than before.”

Mantle will showcase its new capabilities at the Plastics Technology Expo 2023 in Rosemont, IL March 28-30, in booth #1416.
