From injection molding and composite tooling to forming tools and jigs and fixtures, Stratasys tooling solutions let you embrace more opportunities, act faster and shrink the time and cost of production.
Create jigs, fixtures and assembly aids faster and for less cost than traditional tooling with 3D printing. They can be easily optimized for specific tasks, individuals or equipment.
3D printed composite tooling is proven to reduce weight and costly production time over traditional mold tooling, without sacrificing high-temperature or pressure tolerances.
Across a wide range of tooling needs, Stratasys 3D printing solutions are proven to do it with more efficiency, precision and customization. And with our vast array of high-quality production materials you’ll get the speed, precision, strength and detail you need to get the job done right.
“Normally it would take weeks to get traditional grippers made. With the FDM gripper, you can have a new end-of-arm tool complete and bolted up to the robot within a day or so.”

Forego the high cost and long lead times of traditional composite tooling for 3D printed tools instead. They’re lighter, easily tailored to the specific application and offer disruptive time and cost savings in comparison. For complex and hollow composite structures, 3D printed sacrificial tooling makes the job much easier with a user-friendly, washout process.
Cut production cycle times and get products to market sooner with faster, more agile tool creation. 3D printed jigs, fixtures and production tools are produced much more quickly, for lest cost and with less material waste than traditionally manufactured tools, regardless of complexity.
