Using a Strong Foundation
When you are ready to start producing your part, FDM tooling is the way to go. High-performance FDM thermoplastics like ULTEM™ 1010 are used to print a custom tool that can withstand vacuum bagging, high temperatures, and autoclaving. These features allow for quick turn-around which makes FDM tooling perfect for aerospace builds and repairs.
FDM tools are surfaced finished by sanding smooth and coating with an epoxy sealant. This process helps to achieve vacuum integrity as well as giving your parts a clean finish.
Tools can help aid your manufacturing by giving you a customized base that is made to fit your specific needs, including:
- Composite lay-ups
- Envelope bagging
- Jigs and fixtures
- Low volume runs
With FDM tooling 3D Composites aims to provide a service that will keep up with the quality practices of the aerospace community of the greater Seattle area.
