DESIGN TAILORED
TO YOUR NEEDS

Mould Additive Manufacturing

  • 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 Design

  • 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.
