Conformal Cooling Channels

AM technologies allow the production of complex geometries, including molds and mold inserts with conformal cooling channels, which in certain cases are impossible to be obtained by other manufacturing processes.

This technology represents possible huge improvements in the performance of molds, specifically on the cooling phase, reducing drastically the cycle times.

Vítor Santos’ work focuses on developing conformal cooling channels for real case applications in the mold industry, the study of different designs, analysis of the performance through numerical modeling and manufacture of parts.
