 Space Puzzle Molding is a process that was developed by Protoform GmbH of
 Fürth, Germany. I had the opportunity to see it for the first time at
 EuroMold in Frankfurt last December. Very interesting approach. The
 process was recently made available here in the U.S. by Protoform North
 America. Doug VanPutte serves as the company's senior sales
 A Space Puzzle Mold is designed with many parting lines so that it fits
 together like a puzzle. No ejector pins or mechanical mold slides are
 necessary, even for complex parts. According to Doug, SPM is capable of
 injection molding accurate, complex, and production-like prototype parts in
 virtually any plastic at normal molding conditions with a reduction in lead
 time and cost compared to other approaches. I'm sure that Doug would be
 glad to expand on this.
