The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) has announced the availability of a new case study video entitled Rapid Injection Mold Tooling. This recent release in the Manufacturing Insights Video series provides an overview of how the rapid tooling process can save time and money without compromising quality or customer satisfaction.

The video is for product design engineers, modelmakers, pattern markers, mould makers, research and development engineers and managers.

The programme examines how four manufacturing companies utilised different methods of the rapid tooling process to meet their clients' needs. Details about the rapid tooling process include limitations of the process, identification of projects best suited for rapid tooling, and methods to save time and money without compromising tooling quality.

SME's Rapid Injection Mold Tooling (26 minutes) is $225 for SME members ($240 for non-members). To charge by phone, call SME customer service at (800) 733-4763 or (313) 271-1500, ext. 160.
