Explore an innovative way to produce plastics

Discovery market

We are surrounded by plastic products and the vast majority of these items are produced using injection moulding. Until recently, this required the use of expensive metal moulds. As a result, this technique is not suitable for the production of small batches. ‘Additive manufacturing’ has changed this. During this demo you will see how plastic granulate is melted and injected into printed moulds. The result? A keyring!
