Learning with Protolabs’ Insight Video Series

HR & Training, Industrial

If you are in an industry that uses digital manufacturing, 3D printing or CNC machining, it is always good to know what is at the forefront of technology, as well as the latest techniques that are available to you.

 

There is now a convenient way of keeping up with the latest developments through the Protolabs’ Insight video series, which offers regular insight into the world of digital manufacturing.  But what tips and information can you pick up so far from the series?

 

How to bridge the gap between prototype and production

A big question from many businesses is how to get a new product to market before your competitor without sacrificing anything in terms of quality.  The key is the speed of prototype production, to allow a smooth transition to mass production.  In this video, Protolabs helps businesses look at the concept of bridge tooling and how it can help.

 

How to design parts for CNC machining

CNC machining remains a tried and tested way to create both prototypes and parts in a quick and efficient manner.  But there are some design considerations you need to make when you plan to use this system.  In this video, learn how to design with CNC machining in mind to avoid having to rework it for the equipment you want to use.

 

Can you reduce the costs of injection moulding?

As a business, you are always looking to reduce costs.  One way to do this could be by making savings on manufactured parts.  Learn how Protolabs have found you can reduce the costs of injection moulding with a range of options including incorporating undercuts or even removing unnecessary features from the process.

 

How to use the draft to improve part mouldability

One of the trickiest parts of any manufacture is getting the part from the mould used to create it.  But the key to making this issue easier comes in at a different stage than most people would think.  Check out this video on how to use the draft and plan the part design to make sure it is more mouldable and less of an issue after manufacturing has finished.

 

How fine detail can 3D printing really go?

A huge plus of 3D printing is the fine detail that it can produce – into the hundredths of millimetres.  But how fine is this and why is it so important?  Learn about how fine details can be with 3D printing, what micro resolution is and how to create the most intricate of prototypes.

 

New ways to use copper in manufacturing

Copper has long been used in manufacturing but until recently, there was only really one way to work with it – CNC machining.  However, with the development of DMLS, it is now possible to make more complex parts in copper.  Learn what you can now do with copper using this new laser-based manufacturing process.

 

New videos every week

With this free video series, Protolabs is asking the burning questions that their customers have with a simple whiteboard style that gets you the information you need in a quick and manageable way. Watch out for new videos arriving every week.
