As with any Pyramid Mold, we engineer the tool with the best possible features to assist in optimizing the molding process. With this in mind we offer Conformal Cooling, 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 time and part quality.
Conformal cooling is a proven strategy in reducing cycle time, in some cases as much as 70%. Until recently, the manufacturing techniques used to create conformal channels offered limited design options and were too expensive in most applications.
With the introduction of additive manufacturing, this technique has reduced cost, enabling shops to experiment more freely to implement conformal cooling in more applications and discover new ways of enhancing efficiency.
