D2M to showcase mold solutions
Sharjah, May 9, 2012
D2M Solutions, a leading design company, will showcase complete solutions for the design through to production of plastic products, parts, and molds at an upcoming mold technology exhibition in Sharjah.
Arabiamold 2012, a trade show dedicated to the design, prototype and production of tooling and molds, will run from May 14 to 17 at Expo Centre Sharjah.
D2M Solutions is in the experienced position to be able to offer a complete solution for companies looking towards implementing technology to improve their competitiveness within the plastic products, molds and packaging sectors, a statement said.
By incorporating 3D scanning and 3D printing, companies can speed their time to profit and rapidly produce quality products. D2M Solutions, in addition, offers a comprehensive range of complementary technologies specifically aimed towards this sector, it added.
“We welcome visitors to our stand where we will be pleased to demonstrate and discuss these technologies that can optimize the design and fabrication of moulds and tooling, and rapidly create cost-effective product packaging,” said Alex Papantoniou, managing director of D2M.
“Custom packaging is made simple with portable 3D scanners that quickly and accurately capture the external geometry of the product and the data acquired is then used as the basis to build a 3D model of the package.”
“The scanner can also be used at a later stage for quality assurance whereby the molds, dies and packages can be scanned to make a 3D comparison with the reference CAD model. 3D scanning can play an important role throughout the design to production process and not only speeds up the creation of new parts and products, but also reduces the exposure to human errors created by inaccurate measurements and design flaws,” he added.
The company will also show an extensive range of 3D printed models related to the plastics and molding sectors that can be used for form, fit and functional testing of products prior to production.
D2M Solutions will also have interesting examples of parts and products produced in 3D production systems from the digital data.
The technology is especially valuable when customised parts, products and assembly tools are required and can be created in hours instead of the weeks or months normally required using traditional methods. – TradeArabia News Service
