Mold Cooling Technology

RiTemp™ mold cooling technology (RiTemp Technologies, Edwardstown, Australia), distributed by SWM and Associates (Burlington, ON) increases productivity for molders and reduced moldmaking costs results when applied to an existing technical part application that required reduced cycle times and increased productivity.

RiTemp™ mold cooling technology (RiTemp Technologies, Edwardstown, Australia), distributed by SWM and Associates (Burlington, ON) increases productivity for molders and reduced moldmaking costs results when applied to an existing technical part application that required reduced cycle times and increased productivity. This patented technology simplifies the design and manufacturing requirements of mold cooling by replacing gun drilled water lines with a “cooling chamber” or water pocket that completely envelops mold cooling surfaces. The water chamber ensures even heat distribution without the engineering compromise often limited by gun drilling. Using heat exchangers, water is condensed and recycled throughout the chamber. Air is removed prior to production eliminating any corrosion issues. Water and or coolant flow is controlled by a RiTemp mold temperature control that senses and adjusts flow to regulate heat levels. The results range from lower operational and design/manufacturing costs to significant productivity gains.
