Accumold - AM

Historically, additive manufacturing (AM) wasn’t precise enough to be used in micro molding. That has changed. The Fabrica 2.0 precision micro-AM system from Nano Dimension creates production parts capable of 1-micron layers. This makes it a complementary technology for micro injection molding. 

Using AM offers a series of benefits when combined with traditional manufacturing in the following areas:

Additive Manufacturing Allows For Rapid Prototyping

Rapid prototyping has always been a fundamental advantage of AM, enabling the very fast production of parts as prototypes. Instead of taking days or weeks to produce a prototype, Fabrica 2.0 can produce them in hours. This speed of production enables a higher frequency of design iterations, leading to faster time-to-first-part.
