Case: Vacuum mold with die

The existing mold insert had many manual processing steps before it could be fully utilized. For example, the cooling channels had to be milled and the holes had to be drilled with a 0.5 mm drill. These steps sometimes caused problems. The 3D printed mold is lighter, has better cooling properties, the holes do not need to be drilled, the contour only needs to be milled.

Advantages of 3D printing:
Weight reduction, shorter lead time, better cooling
