As with any mold design at Pyramid, we engineer the tool with the best possible features to help the end user optimize the molding process. With this in mind we offer conformal cooling which is a method of cooling that follows the shape or profile of the mold core and/or cavity to provide rapid uniform cooling, thus improving cycle times and part quality.
Conformal cooling is a proven strategy for reducing cycle time, in some cases as much as 70%. Until recently, however, the manufacturing techniques used to create conformal channels offered limited design options and were too expensive to use in most applications.
Today, additive manufacturing techniques are bringing down these costs, enabling shops to experiment more freely, use conformal cooling in more applications and discover new ways to enhance efficiency.
