Using Conformal Cooling Technologies

MGS has been building conformal cooled molds for more than 10 years. This presentation will detail various applications, subsequent results both simulated and actual, and will delve into the decision process that lead to the chosen cooling technology. The choice of cooling approach for every project is a decision based upon a weighted review of part and tool cost, part complexity, lead time, resin type, wall thickness and overall size.
