Advancements in 3D printed tooling

In this webinar, Fortify will go over its unique solution in the 3D printed mold tooling space. Their resin, Digital Tooling, is a high HDT and high stiffness ceramic-fiber reinforced photopolymer that is tuned for use in tooling applications like injection molding or thermoforming. Digital Tooling exhibits an HDT greater than 300 degrees C and can withstand shots of aggressive plastics such as polycarbonate or ULTEM. 

During the webinar, Fortify will highlight several use cases and compare the differences between standard tools and 3D printed tooling: going over the ideal use cases for each. With customer examples and case studies you’ll walk away with a better understanding of: 

  1. How 3D printed tooling can benefit you during your prototyping phase

  2. When to implement 3D printed tooling into your workflow

  3. 3D printed tooling technology is evolving and can be used for high performance materials

Our Guest Speaker

My name is Craig Crossley, Applications Engineer at Fortify working in the Injection mold tooling vertical. I graduated from UMass Lowell in 2020 with a BSE in Plastics Engineering.

While at UMass Lowell I was captain of the rugby team for two years and a member of the SPE student chapter. Prior to joining Fortify last April I had worked as the Process Engineering Lead at Prodrive Technologies and the Injection Molding Engineer at Spaulding Composites, along with over 3 years of various Plastics Engineering internship experience. I have worked on tooling design as well as mold processing, project management and purchasing of new tooling and materials.

During my time at Fortify I have worked on several projects that include our introduction of high performance materials into our envelope of capabilities.
