DESIGN TAILORED
TO YOUR NEEDS

AM PRODUCTION

  • Process tailored for plastic injection moulds
  • Maraging steel inserts
  • LPBF Additive Manufacturing
  • Tailored heat treatment for higher quality insert
  • No cost increase with complex geometry

QTool’s technical team will perform structural optimisation of the inserts before production resulting in considerable time and cost reduction. We will then use the latest LPBF Additive Manufacturing Technology to produce inserts in Maraging Steel with conformal cooling systems

CONFORMAL COOLING

  • Cooling down insert uniformly​
  • Warpage reduction​
  • Elimination of the hot spot​
  • Reduction of the cycle time up to 75%

These cooling channels conform to the geometry of your part leading to the elimination of the hot spots and the reduction of the cycle time by up to 75%. Cooling down the mould uniformly we decrease warpage of the end-user plastic part.

LIGHTWEIGHTING

  • Optimised structure
  • Performance enhanced
  • Environmental footprint decreased
  • More package value

We remove all the solid material from the insert and replace it with a fully optimized TPMS lattice structure to enhance the mould’s performance and decrease its environmental footprint. This approach improves the energy absorption properties.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

1. Subscription

Get in touch to get all your questions answered or schedule a meeting with our sales team and project manager. You can then choose your subscription package and officially subscribe.

2. Conformal Cooling System Design

Having received all technical specifications, a dedicated engineer will be assigned to your project and start the design

3. Design Consolidation

We will send a technical report citing the potential saving in the injection moulding cycle and warpage reduction based on simulation results. If the results are satisfactory, you may proceed with production.

For first time clients, your subscription starts now.

4. Insert Production

The production will be started as soon as the project designs are consolidated and approved. All inserts are produced in Maraging steel and heat treated to guarantee maximum performance and to prolongate its life.

5. Delivery and Balance Report

You would normally receive the inserts in wooden box within one working week along with a balance sheet reporting the remaining on-demand production capacity.

6. USE YOUR BALANCE FOR THE NEXT PROJECT

You can now use your remaining on-demand production capacity to order the same design (taking only production and delivery times) or ordering a new design (extra, if not included in the package already).

 

We are glad to hear from you.
