Rapid Prototyping and Tooling

Conscious of the new market demands and of the industry’s need for reducing lead times between product development and prototyping INEGI offers companies to possibility to use rapid prototyping technologies for developing new products.

The Institute uses rapid prototyping and tooling technologies to produce functional and non-functional prototypes, moulds for plastic injection, forging dies, tools for cold plastic forming, etc. Engineering models and casting moulds are also produced using LOM (Laminated Object Manufacturing) and Stereolithograpgy rapid prototyping techniques. Rapid tooling is done using vacuum resin casting technologies and sand, ceramic or lost wax casting.
