ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING – THE NEXT DIMENSION IN PLASTIC INJECTION MOLDING TOOLING

    For decades we have been recognized as a global leader in the manufacture and the supply of tool steel, as a result we understand the challenges that our customers face in the PIM industry. Customer intimacy and technical understanding is a major factor when developing successful solutions with our partners.

    Our attention to detail goes far beyond the design of the tool. Our additive manufacturing experts develop printing parameters specifically optimized to suit our range of high performance PIM materials, giving our customers unique solutions with superior results.

    Unique tools require unique solutions. Working together with our customers, using our state-of-the-art additive manufacturing and materials know how, we develop tailormade AM solutions optimized specifically for PIM.

    OPTIMIZED DESIGN

    AM expertise paired with extensive PIM know-how ensures we deliver the best possible tooling solutions to our customers. We support our customers through a detailed consultation process to develop the right solution for the right application, using state-of-the-art tools to support the manufacturing process from initial concept to functional parts. Where needed our PIM experts can help our customers re-design tools according to the exact requirements of their application.

    Our data driven approach to cooling channel design analyses processing parameters and mechanical loads to develop detailed computer models and process simulations. This method of optimizing thermal management is essential to ensure the right balance between efficient cooling and the mechanical performance of the tool.

    This process goes far beyond regular conformal cooling channel design. We understand PIM.

    Failure analysis and process simulation are important key competences. When paired with our AM design and processing know how, we gain a deep understanding of not only the challenges, but how we can best optimize the part in relation to the performance needs of the customer.


     


     

    OPTIMIZED PRINTING

    We ensure the highest possible quality, reliability and consistency by managing every step of the value chain from powder production to the delivery of the finished part. Whether for a single part order or series production, our internal quality systems ensure we meet your requirements every time. We use state-of-the-art tools to continually improve and refine our internal printing processes. Design of Experiments, Statistical Process Control, and Process Monitoring form the basis of our methodology. Continued innovation from our AM and materials groups ensures we deliver superior material properties in the most demanding applications with the best surface quality you can get with AM. As a result, our customers can put parts into service with the highest degree of confidence.

    We understand the interactions between laser and material. This deep understanding of AM and PIM allows customers to add value to their business and realize competitive advantage.


     


     

    OPTIMIZED POWDER

    Our long history of developing materials for the PIM industry, means the powders we use are of the highest quality and deliver superior tool life.
