Industry trends Beat the competition There is increasing pressure to more quickly deliver higher quality die-casting parts. AM works for all kinds of products and is a very efficient option for dies characterized by thick walls. The quality of these parts is linked to the quality of the tools used. Temperature control within these dies is of chief of importance. Efficient thermal regulation in dies is essential for stress-relieved cooling of the workpiece and positively impacts final part quality by eliminating hotspots for example. As a bonus, improved temperature homogeneity can increase...

Conformal channels Increase mold performance Thanks to 3D printing, you can build inserts with conformal channels, meaning that they are placed closer to the final molded part and that they respect the part’s geometry. This breakthrough then aligns the exchange of temperature inside the mold and therefore optimizes production in terms of time, cost and quality. Mold flow simulation Simulation is essential to creating these conformal channels, and very effective and easy-to-use software solutions are available. GF Machining Solutions’ AM team supports you both in learning channel design and...
