Highly polished cores for injection molding
Printed results for highly polished cores made out of H11 using the 500 °C preheating option are crack-free with densities in excess of 99.9%. The polishing properties are also high with no difference to conventional production. Cooling performance is comparable to copper. However, integrated conformal cooling channels have enabled stable plastic parts production in injection molding. Plastic handles produced for an operating room light are able to be produced with a significantly reduced cycle time.
