voestalpine Inserts for Test Tubes


designed for pure performance

Our AM Inserts for Test Tubes have optimized conformal cooling solutions, enabling our customers to run a stable and highly efficient production with a minimized cost per plastic part produced.

Our inserts reduce the overall cycle time by up to 30% compared to conventionally manufactured drilled cooling channels. Improved part tolerances are also achieved through homogeneous and conformal cooling design, leading to decreased scrap rates.

Many globally active plastic injection molding companies in various industries have confirmed the premium functionality and profitability of our corrosion-resistant AM Inserts for Test Tubes.
