Additive manufacturing is revealing a highly valuable technology also for plastic injection moulds market. The higher benefit is related to a better design of cooling channels, more numerous and closer to the functional surface, which enable higher moulds’ performance in terms of production capability and efficiency.
MIMETE Srl – metal powders producer- is proud to partnership with RB Srl -plastic injection moulds producer since 1973- in developing optimized powders and LPB/SLM parameters to:
- Control roundness and roughness of cooling channels
- Maximize powder life
- Reduce tendency to cracking
- Increase thermal fatigue properties
- Maximise productivity
The goal is to find the unique correlation between raw material and process parameters to make additive technology the more profitable for RB business.
To achieve this goal, RB found a reliable partner in MIMETE Srl, whose metallurgical knowledge combined with skilled technicians and a fully equipped laboratory represent the great starting point to investigate all the opportunities additive manufacturing technology offers to plastic injection moulds.
