Pure Power Sources is a company that, among other things, manufactures plastic die, which are finally used as elements of production lines. All dies that are used to base or inspect the products on the line are currently made with a 3D printer.
Before buying a professional FDM machine, the company faced several challenges. In the case of die plates, it had a very strong competition using similar technologies and therefore offering products at similar prices. On the other hand, prototypes of elastomeric parts were made on milling machines, which was expensive and took up machines that should be used for different orders.
The investment in 3D printing turned out to be an ideal solution. Today, the company prints durable and damage resistant dies with complex geometry.
