Tooling Additive manufacturing 3D printing

The profitability of injection moulding is largely based on machine time, and of course dwell times when components are molded. With conventional machining processes tooling can only be as complex as the machining process allows, and cooling only as much as it is possible to create channels with conventional machining. With 3D Printing of tool steel or maraging steel, it is possible to create flow channels very close to the surface of the mould tool, this allows for a drastic cooling effect, which in turns allows for lower dwell times, with production rates rising up to 40% depending on the components that are manufactured.
