Regular and Conformal cooling: a side by side comparison

Regular and Conformal cooling: a side by side comparison

The Plazology team and OGM analysed the performance of mould inserts using the Moldex3D simulation system, then verified its findings with physical mould trials using their in-house Krauss Maffei 1200KN Electric moulding machine.

plastic injection mould tooling

A pragmatic approach to plastic injection mould tooling

By combining our direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) and CNC machining into a single production system, we’ve developed a range of innovative techniques for the manufacture of plastic injection mould tooling.  Using this hybrid manufacturing system, we can offer:   The ability to reduce lead times for plastic injection mould tooling, to just a few weeks  Special tool inserts that eliminate the problems of gas traps in plastic injection …
