Injection Molding from 3D Printed Molds

3D printing has become one of the biggest trending technological innovations of the 21st century. With its logistical efficiency, ability to easily modify designs, and speed of production, it’s no surprise that the manufacturing industry is turning to 3D printing for a multitude of applications. This white paper explores how 3D printing can be beneficial specifically for manufacturers focused on low volume injection molding of small plastic parts. The report features a succinct yet detailed overview of two case studies, both of which exhibit the advantages and possible challenges of making molds via 3D printing. The article goes on to offer advice on how such challenges can be overcome, as well as some guidelines for mold design. If you’re looking to break the mold to save time and money, download this white paper and see if 3D printing is the right solution for your business.

Common Mode Noise Considerations

Common Mode Noise DC/DC converters operate by chopping the DC input voltage into an AC signal then transferring that signal through a transformer. The AC is then rectified back into DC for the output. The output voltage can be adjusted either higher or lower than the input voltage depending on the turns ratio of the transformer. The transformer is made from concentric windings on top of each...
