Additive manufacturing (AM) in metals has already proven itself to be a valuable tool for moldmakers in a variety of ways. Through AM, moldmakers have the unique ability to print parts before tooling is executed to pre-test quality and assembly procedures, enabling their customers to make any necessary adjustments before entering tooling production. Conformal cooling via additively manufactured channels that can be placed exactly where they are needed helps to shorten injection molding times, improve part quality and lengthen the lifespans of mold cores and inserts.
