Digital Molding, powered by 3D Systems' Figure 4 technology, enables the rapid, tool-free, continuous production of plastic parts with improved efficiency, design flexibility and economics as compared to traditional methodologies. It is a modular, scalable additive manufacturing process that simplifies and accelerates the production of plastic parts. This ultra-fast, automated Stereolithography (SLA) system enables manufacturers to go straight from CAD to manufacturing, without tooling, for the rapid production of complex plastic parts. By eliminating the time and money required for traditional tooling, Digital Molding saves upfront costs and enables immediate part revisions without operational downtime.

More information on Digital Molding will be available during the tct introducing @ formnext presentation by 3D Systems' Senior Researcher Scott Turner, entitled "The Evolution of Stereolithography for the Automated Manufacturing Environment," held Tuesday, November 15, at 11:10 AM CET in Hall 3.1, Stand K70, of Messe Frankfurt.

In addition to 3D Systems' Digital Molding demonstration, the company will introduce several new materials engineered for advanced applications across 3D Systems' MultiJet Printing (MJP), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and SLA technologies.
