3D Conformal Cooling Mould


The business environment is full of challenges. Many enterprises engaged in mould production, especially SMEs, are actively seeking technology solutions that are cost-effective to produce high-precision and high-efficiency moulds, so as to penetrate the high value-added markets and obtain higher profit margins. Conformal cooling technology can effectively improve the cooling water channel design in the mould, thereby shortening the injection moulding cycle of the mould and improving the moulding quality, which are beneficial for manufacturers to develop the market for high-precision products.

Problem addressed

Cooling system in the mould directly affects the quality, cost and productivity of products. However, the traditional drilling method can only realise a straight cooling channel in the mould, resulting in uneven temperature distribution of the moulded part and long moulding cycle. The products are prone to problems such as warpage and shrinkage, affecting the dimensional accuracy of products.

  • This technology can improve the dimensional accuracy and quality of plastic injection parts, and shorten the overall injection moulding cycle, thereby increasing the production line capacity and production efficiency, while reducing the costs of repetitive mould and plastic injection production.
Key impact
  • Provide highly efficient and economical conformal cooling channel solution to the industry
  • Recombine existing technologies to form innovative solutions that shorten production cycle times by approximately 20% or more, with correspondingly lower costs.
