Optimisation of a mold cooling capability and its fabrication by additive manufacturing

Productique has a production application utilizing a die and mold heat exchanger to cool the fabricated parts. By optimizing the cooling channels in the heat exchanger, the cycle time between successive parts will be reduced. The optimization will be composed of a combination of numerical modelling and experimental results. The data gathered from the experiments will be used to validate the numerical model and insure that it is an accurate reflection of reality. Productique will benefit from the 3D-printed die and mold heat exchanger optimisation platform that will be delivered to them through this research project.
