Philmac Adopts 3D Printing for Prototype Tooling to Enable More Complex Design 


3D Systems’ On Demand experts help Philmac find the right process and materials for 3D printed production tooling.

Improving the design of a part within a system is rarely straightforward. From the simplest enhancement to the most complex, a cycle of iterations can be expected to verify the design during prototyping and implement it in production. During a recent test for a new valve product design, this experience played out for Philmac, a global leader in designing and manufacturing specialist fittings and valves for the transfer, control and application of water. 

Accustomed to accelerating its design cycle with 3D printing for prototyping, Philmac expanded its use of 3D printing to prototype tooling in order to enable a more complex geometry. Teaming with 3D Systems On Demand experts in Australia, Philmac conducted a successful trial of this new methodology to bring its new concept to life.
