Baker Industries’ Uniform Thermal Surface Control strategy builds on the concept of conformal cooling to enable regulation of mold heating or cooling. The strategy is said to improve part and surface quality among other benefits. Additive manufacturing in metals has already proven itself to be a valuable tool for moldmakers. Conformal cooling via additively manufactured channels that can be placed exactly where needed helps to shorten injection molding times, improve part quality, and lengthen the lifespans of mold cores and inserts.
