While 3D-printed conformal coolant lines in steel injection molds reduce production costs and improve part quality, aluminum molds can yield similar results faster and at a lower cost.
The i-ONE line from YG-1 offers micro-grain carbide drill inserts, and premium tool steel holders with coolant channels that resist corrosion and wear and ensure body clearance.
