Additive manufacturing can thermally improve die casting conditions, resulting in reduced cycle times and extended tooling life. This is accomplished by conformal cooling channels which were impossible with conventional manufacturing processes.
We can accommodate up to 100kg or 400mm x 400mm x 400mm part. A proprietary heat treatment systems is also in-house to guarantee consistency and short lead times.
UPON REQUEST THERMAL SIMULATION CAN BE PROVIDED
There are various ways of additively manufacturing metal parts, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.
- Processes differ:
- Feedstock material type
- * Wire, powder, sheets, adhesives, etc.
- Material feeding method
- * Wiping, raining, inkjet, nozzles, etc.
- Energy source
- * Lasers, UV, electron beam, etc.
- All have their purposes, you just need to understand the process and applicable uses.

THE PERFECT DIE
Requires the die and shot end temperature to be stable from the first to the last casting.
