With TriMech Advanced Manufacturing Services you have can rely on us to make your custom tooling and fixtures. This gives you the flexibility to embrace more opportunities, act faster and shrink the cost and risk associated with mold, tool and die production.
You can go from the design studio to the factory floor in a fraction of the time it takes other development processes. We can produce all manner of tools, jigs, fixtures, and manufacturing aids on-demand with speed and efficiency.
Our CNC Machining Services, including milling, and turning for the production of high-quality parts using modern machining methods. With highly skilled machinists and industry-leading equipment TriMech can accommodate a vast array of mold and tool and die applications.
TriMech also uses the world’s most advanced 3D printing solutions, allowing designers and engineers to get their production tooling in less than a day as opposed to days and weeks for traditional metal tools. Instead of spending time and money to machine, fabricate, mold or cast your tools we can 3D print them using a variety of high performance materials.
With our Stratasys 3D printers we can help you to reduce scrap and retooling by providing 3D printed injection molds and other tools before machining them.
How TriMech Helps Molding Engineers and Toolmakers
Plastic 3D Printing or CNC Production
As we offer 3D printing and CNC machining services we can help you to determine the best and most cost effective solution.
Our 3D printing technology produces tool masters with fine feature detail and smooth surfaces right out of the build chamber.
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.
Mold, Tool and Die Industry Profile
3D printed production molds are used to evaluate mold and part designs or produce low volumes of end use parts.
3D Printing in the Mold Industry
3D Printers from Stratasys® give TriMech the ability to build functional injection, blow or silicone molds, quickly and easily at a fraction of the cost of a steel or aluminum mold.

Replace Expensive CNC Production
By replacing expensive and lead-time critical CNC-machined tooling with 3D printed tooling
You can dramatically reduce your production costs. The printed plastic tooling also perform better technically, weigh less, and are well suited for the production of complex tools that, when using conventional metal-cutting processes, would be very difficult and costly to produce.
Design changes are more cost effective
In cases where design changes are required, a new iteration of a tool can be created at minimal cost.
This, combined with the speed of 3D printing, allows tooling designers and engineers greater design freedom.
Tools created by 3D printers can be precisely built in 30 micron layers, with accuracy as high as 0.1 mm.
These production features create a smooth surface finish so post-processing is not needed in most cases.
Advantages of PolyJet Technology
Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys PolyJet Machine
Stratasys PolyJet 3D Printers are based on proven technology, which creates precise prototypes that set the standard for finished-product realism.
Their fine resolution makes complex shapes, intricate details and smooth surfaces possible.
PolyJet 3D Printing works by jetting layers of liquid photopolymer onto a build tray and instantly curing them with UV light.
The fine layers build up to create a precise 3D model or prototype. Models are ready to handle right out of the 3D printer, with no post-curing needed.
