Disrupting the composite tooling supply chain

Large ULTEM 1010™
composite layup tool
produced for Dassault
Falcon Jet

high-temperature lay-up tooling
in hours or days, rather than the
weeks or months it would take
to produce and procure tooling
made from traditional approaches. Moreover, 3D printed tooling
can offer disruptive cost-savings
compared to traditional tooling
materials and numerous other
less quantified benefits, such as
dramatic weight savings. Case
studies with OEMs like Dassault
Falcon Jet, Aurora Flight
Sciences, and SSL (formerly
Space Systems Loral) illustrate
the potential for over 80% reductions in cost and lead time.
Another recent example that
demonstrates the significant
time-saving resulting from this
process is with Formula 1 racing team and Stratasys customer,
McLaren. They used FDM 3D

printing to produce a new race
car wing in under two weeks during a recent Grand Prix season.
In this instance, the team 3D
printed an ULTEM™ 1010 resin
mould tool to create the shape of
the wing. Since this material can
withstand the high temperatures
involved with curing composite
structures, it was used throughout the cure cycle to produce
the final structure. The carbon
fibre composite wing was then
removed, leaving the team with
a reusable composite layup tool.
The additive nature of 3D printing that results in material only
being placed where it is needed,
also means that great efficiency
and minimal waste are a natural
result of the process. This not
only significantly decreases material usage, but also reduces the

weight of tooling dramatically.
This optimization allows tooling to be handled by human operators rather than by cranes or
lifting devices. It also reduces the
thermal mass of the tool during
the curing process, further decreasing recurring costs and operational inefficiencies.
So, in summary, it's all about enabling manufacturers to get products to market faster and with
reduced investment costs. The
opportunity to enjoy such benefits and improve business performance offers great value, which
merits strong consideration from
manufacturers.
As the demand for new applications, product improvements,
as well as faster, lower-cost tool
creation continues to build, composite part manufacturers are
forced to innovate. They must
seek to remain competitive, especially as the early adopters of
this technology are already reaping the benefits offered by 3D
printed tooling.
