Additive Ideas

Introducing two new 3-dimensional product lines. Bend3D® and Solv3D® are additively manufactured products created from a raw material, using a computer generated file. These Wilson Tool Additive® product lines can reduce lead times for press brake tooling and support items — such as prototypes, fixtures or molds — while maintaining the quality you expect from Wilson Tool International.
