Strengthen your industrial manufacturing processes
Mold making. Die casting. Part making. Now, the ready are evaluating how additive can drive greater returns on investment. Discover your additive advantage, from new business opportunities with tool steel and pure copper to reducing warpage on molded parts with conformal cooling.
Conformal cooling strategies
Design conformal cooling channels and features unmatched by machining. Surface and parallel cooling allows for improved temperature management and unique designs, such as spiral cooling ducts on the tool bodies and small-channel diameters.
Cooling channels form a mesh structure to enable uniform surface cooling of a glass insert for spectacles, just 2 to 3 mm beneath the mold contour.
High-pressure stability throughout the part’s arched structure
Even temperature control across large areas minimizes part distortion
