Responding to production pressure with conformal cooling
Summary- responding to production pressure with conformal cooling.
Conformal cooling enables mould tools to operate faster and to produce more consistent parts. This article details the use of additive manufacturing for conformal cooling of mould tools.
Conformal cooling enables mould tools to operate faster and to produce more consistent parts. AM boosts this further by optimising heat transfer to make cooling both faster and more even.
