Heavy duty die casting tool conformal cooling

Die casting tool lead times are typically 6 to 10 weeks and limitations in cycle time drive profitability. High temperatures and pressures require of hot work tool steel.

Solution

  • End to end metal AM solution, Metco powder, OAM printing, machining, heat treatment
  • Design for AM, internal lattice structures reduce mass
  • 1.2344 (H13) material, printed at elevated temperature to mitigate cracking

 

Impact

  • Lead time reduced to 10 days print time + post-processing
  • Crack free construction on hard to print alloy
  • 28% mass reduction by eliminating unnecessary internal material
  • Reduced cycle time with optimized cooling
  • Only possible with AM
