The design benefits of Additive Manufacturing from DETEKT increase both the productivity of the tools and the plastic product quality. Scrap rate and cost per part decline. In addition, manufacturers profit from cycle time reduction and longer service life for tools.
Additive Manufacturing allows direct integration of conformal cooling channels in moulds and mould inserts. Optimized heat dissipation enables shorter cycle times and increased productivity and plastic product quality in injection moulding operations.
The repair of damaged tool components is an application area in which innovative additive manufacturing technology from DETEKT can really demonstrate its strengths. Instead of having to dispose of a worn-out tool and replacing it with a new one, the damaged areas can be repaired quickly using laser sintering. This enables manufacturers to benefit from a longer operating life, also reducing operating costs.
