AM Inserts for Test Tubes

AM produced inserts for test tubes with optimized conformal cooling solutions enables our customer to run a stable and highly efficient production. With the goal to reduce the cost per produced plastic part.

Benefit compared to conventional sprinkler cooling

  • Improved cycle time: -30 % cycle time reduction compared to drilled channels realized in one case study
  • Improved part tolerances: homogenous & conformal cooling solutions helped our customers to reduce the scrap rate

Benefit compared to AM 1.2709 with nickel coating in cooling channels

  • 1.2709 + nickel coating: failed after 400.000 through cracking from corrosion in channels
  • Corrax failed after 800.000 shots due to wear – further improvement with coating possible
