Bastech’s Advanced Rapid Tooling Division offers the quickest, most accurate tooling technologies available today. Our center utilizes many different, but complementary rapid tooling processes for creating plastic injection molds, stamping dies, wax dies, and diecast dies. Our experienced engineers will select the most appropriate and cost effective method based on client lead-time, tolerance requirements, production volumes, and material specifications. Bastech’s Advanced Rapid Tooling Division can guide your project from CAD model through plastic injection in as little as 12 to 15 days.
Cost effective for complex tooling and multi tool projects
Full automated process
Reduces/eliminates human error
Creative design possibilities
Superior in strength and hardness to aluminum
Few geometry constraints – waterlines and undercuts permissible
Better accuracy and fewer size limitations than previous versions
Durable metal molds for 10 to 20,000 injection molded plastic parts
Can be plated, textured, machined, EDM (d), or welded (brazed)
Also can be used for creating complex metal parts
Consistent delivery and tolerance
Developmental Tooling – 1.5 to 2 weeks, 20 to 1,000 parts
Mid-range Tooling – 2 to 4 weeks, 200 to 5,000 parts
Low-volume Production or Bridge Tooling – 4 to 5 weeks, 5,000 to 20,000 parts
Could your company benefit from typical lead time reductions? Our rapid tooling capabilities, direct from your 3D data, are coupled with traditional tool making skills and a responsive fast-paced working environment. We offer our customers a mix of technologies to produce prototype, bridge, and low-volume molded parts in production intent thermoplastic materials.
For larger prototype parts where strength and durability are critical, Bastech offers computer numerical control machining (CNC.) This rapid prototyping process is enhanced by offering reproductions in acrylic, polycarbonate, nylon, glass-filled nylon, tooling boards, aluminum-filled epoxy and wood. Bastech offers the following CNC options:
Larger material selection when compared to SLS and SLA
Tighter tolerances when compared to other rapid prototyping
Surfaces feature clean, crisp lines without the “stair-stepping” of SLS and SLA.
Try before you buy!
If you’re considering a purchase of a 3D printer you may want to test your part on one or multiple machines to determine the best investment.
