There is a range of methodology for the construction for composite tools, as well as many materials options. Quality tool building is critical to the quality of the part produced, and a significant level of expertise in tooling design and manufacturing is required. Based on internal tool building capability, the appropriate decision of in-house construction or outsourcing can be determined. The most often used materials associated today vary from traditional tooling, new advances in tooling board, additive manufacturing, and prepreg for tooling. Composites One will take you on this journey along with the industry’s leading tooling experts.

Primary Topics:

  • Traditional Tooling
  • Materials for Tooling
  • Prepreg for Tooling
  • New Technology for Tooling
