Tool insert for tracheal tube

Medical technology & dentistry TruPrint 3000 Tool steel Series production

This use case demonstrates additive tool and mold making for medical technology. It enables an 80% reduction in the cycle time for plastic injection molding, resulting in large financial savings.

The mold cores contain an internal double helix structure (conformal cooling). It significantly reduces the cycle time for injection molding.

32 tool inserts are produced per build job.

Cost reduction
Shortened cycle times
Higher quality
