CNC trim tool is also 12″ x 24″
Same 3D printed technology as the forming tool
Same delivery time as the forming tool

  • Same design utilized to save cost & time
  • All tools are made at the same time
  • 1 PO for all 3 tools, instead having to send separate ones

Customer Testimonial

We were able to use Catalysis for a vacuum forming tool, trim fixture and check fixture, which was very convenient to get them at the same time. The parts formed very well on the vacuum forming tool- standard shuttle machine cycle time was maintained without the need to stop for tool cooling. We were pleased with how well the part fit onto the trim fixture and scribe lines were also accurate on the check fixture.

This is just one of many examples of the benefits of utilizing Catalysis for your tooling needs.
