3D Printed Injection Molding Inserts - PVAMC

Presented by

Cole Brubaker, Research Engineer - Innovation, PING

About this talk

Join PADT and PING's Cole Brubaker for a presentation on additive's role in improving the injection molding process on a large scale. Since its founding in 1959, the name PING has been synonymous with high-quality golf clubs among professionals and casual players alike. While the game of golf is obviously at the core of what it does, the company also has roots in engineering, dating back to its creator, Karsten Solheim, who worked as an engineer at the General Electric company when he started making putters in his garage in Redwood City, California. With this emphasis on the technical side of its manufacturing, the company has been able to stand out among its competitors through a variety of innovative and data-driven practices.PING set out to find new technologies that could be used to further speed up and reduce the costs of its development processes. Additive manufacturing has been used at PING for over 20 years in various capacities, so investigating developments in that field was a logical next step. The company set out to pinpoint specific stages in its process through which implementation would benefit the entire manufacturing organization. Register now to learn more about this incredibly unique application and implementation of 3D printing. About Cole Brubaker: Cole Brubaker is a research engineer at PING Golf focused on the use of 3D printing and additive manufacturing for rapid prototyping and product development. Cole received his PhD in engineering from Vanderbilt University where his research focused on the design and development of functional material systems for 3D printing applications. At PING, he has helped develop processes to quickly evaluate new designs for injection molded parts using 3D printed tooling and insert.The use of 3D printed injection mold inserts has helped to significantly reduce both the time and cost traditionally associated with prototyping across several design iteration
