Abstract

This case study describes implementation of conformal channel in laminated tooling. Laminated tooling is a simple and fast way to make metal tools directly for injection molds in the rapid prototyping field. Injection moulding is the most common mass production process for plastic parts. All thermoplastics and some thermosets can be injection moulded to achieve a wide variety of sizes and intricate shapes. Injection moulded parts can be found from electronics and power tools to appliances. Due to the large impact that injection moulding has on the manufucturing industry, companies constantly strive to shorten both cycle and product development time. Cooling channel design is important in mould designs to achieve shorter cycles and reduced part stresses. Traditionally, cooling channels have been machined into mould components to avoid interference with the ejection system and other mould details. Over the years straight conventional drilled cooling channels have given away to conformal technique.
