Hello everyone,
At Penn State University (University Park Campus), we have a Center for
Innovative Sintered Products (CISP). As part of this rapidly expanding R&D
group, we are looking into time compressing the following rapid tooling
processes for die compaction and powder injection molding tooling-
1) SLS
2) Keltool
4) CNC (we look at this process as a rapid tooling technique)
These processes can give us tools in around 10 days time (including lead time).
We have some ideas and plans for bringing down this time to a day or two!!!
Any suggestions or ideas for time compression are welcome!!!
Thanking you in anticipation,
