Our options in the field of additive design and engineering allow us to integrate complex surface cooling structures into injection molding tools. This prevents “hot spots”, which otherwise lead to a significant increase in the reject rate.
The possibilities afforded by laser melting (LM) mean that we can quickly and cost-effectively manufacture steel or aluminum injection molding tools.
For injection molding, we have access to over 500 different thermoplastics and more than 500 different elastomers.
Injection molding - description of the process
Injection molding heats, melts, and injects the molten plastic granulate into a tool cavity under high pressure. The overmolding of inserts is possible. Undercuts are created by loose parts and sliders. After the plastic mass has cooled, the tool opens to remove the component. The discharge quantity per tool amounts to about 3,000 pieces.
