In this installment of Design Tips for Plastic Injection Molding, Kevin Crystal explains EDM - Electric Discharge Machining - and how EDM is used in the injection molding process.
Using the Protomold Torus, Kevin explains how different features such as sharp or square outside corners can be designed using EDM.
Injection Molding - 25 to 10,000+ molded parts in 1 to 15 days
Rapid injection molding works best for functional prototyping, pilot runs, bridge tooling and low-volume production of on-demand parts. More than 100 different production-grade thermoplastic and liquid silicone rubber materials are available.
