Wilson Tool's new Additive division will cut turnaround time on tools and support parts, the company says.Click image to enlarge

Wilson Tool International has formed a new division: Wilson Tool Additive.

WTI says the new division will give it the capability to supply companies with made to order bending tools and fabrication support parts in hours instead of days or weeks. These include the Bend3DTM line of additively manufactured bending tools, which also work as forming tools, air bending tools and mark free bending solutions, and the Solv3DTM line. The Solv3DTM line consists of additively manufactured support parts, which can replace end use parts that have traditionally been manufactured out of steel or plastic, items in a shop that often require an expensive mould to be created, and jigs or fixtures that hold things together. They can also be used as a prototype.
