One of the biggest advantages of AM techniques in the manufacture of tooling’s is the ability to create conformal cooling holes. The heat generated from the moulding process has a detrimental effect on the life of the tooling and on the quality of the moulded part. However, conformal cooling allows holes to be created which follows the shape or profile of the mould core or cavity providing rapid uniform cooling to the tooling.

Amace solutions has equipped tool and die makers with the ability to print conformal cooling holes into their existing designs and reduce injection moulding cycle time by up to 20% additionally with larger print volumes, amace extends greater flexibility to customers.
