3D Printed Die Components
2019 - PACE Award Finalist
What: 3D printing makes dies more robust and flexible
Innovation: Using additive manufacturing to improve cooling while production dies are being cast reduces porosity and increases die strength, while also reducing scrap rates. Exco’s new design method, powder bed fusion technology, produces complex designs for high-pressure die casting tooling. This offers much lower cycle times with quicker solidification and improved casting quality.
