Development of a Combined CNC/Laser Cladding System

Project Status: finished

The ability to influence the wall temperature of injection moulding tools is an important factor in order to guarantee a constant quality of the polymer parts. This research project aims at realising ideal heat dissipation in micro injection moulding tools. Due to the small dimensions of the tools, it is not possible to ensure heat dissipation with the aid of near-surface cooling channels. The idea is therefore to apply highly heat conductive coatings by means of a laser cladding process.
