Rapid toolingThe term "rapid tooling" describes fast tool construction in general. In this process, tools are simplified to leave out any non-essential components. The priority is to produce parts with the functionality of the orginial material quickly and cost-effectively.
The rapid tooling process is ideally suited to commercial parts production using series required for pilot and small series production. In particular, sectors with relatively small lot sizes, such as is the case in pharmaceutical technology, benefit from the alternative process of rapid tooling in comparison with conventional tool construction.
In the last few years, FASTPART Kunststofftechnik GmbH has started to produce aluminium tool parts.
