“Catalysis 3D printed polymer molds has reduced prototyping tooling time and costs for product development more than 50% compared to traditional methods. This process allows multiple design/test cycles to optimize final product function/cost. Catalysis has moved to the next step in utilizing 3D printed metal molds to significantly reduce cycle time, improve quality and reduce costs for high volume production.”
