Foam Tooling

When it comes to foam tooling, the more complex the part, the more expensive conventional tooling tends to be. This isn’t just expensive, but delivery time can be up to 6 weeks! With our Catalysis FX™ 3D printed tooling technology, more complexity means higher advantage for 3D printed tooling.
