ULTEM® Used for High-Temperature Applications

Not only did this ULTEM® alternative provide significant weight reduction, but it also enabled substantial time savings in production as well.

The inserts were printed with sparse-filled details, which allowed Baker to reduce over ¾ the original weight of the carbon fiber tooling. The team was also able to reduce lead time by over 6 weeks, since this process eliminated the need for designing carbon fiber details, machine time and post-processing to create the molds needed to lay-up the conventionally manufactured carbon fiber tool at the tolerances required by the customer.
