As an emerging technology, 3D printing has become a powerful tool for linking intelligent manufacturing. A few days ago, the Dongguan Municipal Bureau of Economy and Information Technology and the Dongguan Electronic Information Industry Association jointly organized a smart talent training event. At the event site, Dongguan Plastic Mould Company News released an industrial-grade 3D printer to serve Dongguan plastic mould enterprises.
Improve cooling efficiency and shorten casting cycle
"By analyzing the hot spots of the mold map provided by the customer, after finding the corresponding area that inhibits the mold cooling efficiency, the conformal waterway scheme is designed. After the customer confirms the design scheme, the layered software and production machine are imported. It is ready to 3D print plastic molds. This is the practical process of mass production of molds using 3D printing technology.
Compared with traditional production, the model efficiency and yield rate of using 3D printing technology to die machining are higher. Because the production of molds needs to be in special environments such as high temperatures, this has led to the phenomenon of uneven heating and high defect rates in traditional processing modes; now 3D printing technology is applied, and mold production can be evenly heated in all positions , Which directly improves the yield of products.
It is worth noting that the application of 3D printing technology can also shorten the cycle of mold molding. According to the traditional production model, only 100 molds can be produced in one hour; with 3D printing technology, the number of molds produced in one hour can reach as many as 1,000.
Using 3D printing technology, a 3D conformal waterway can be made inside the mold, which greatly improves the cooling efficiency and shortens the titanium investment casting cycle, which not only saves costs, but also improves the quality of products and enhances the competitiveness of enterprises. At present, this technology has been widely used in the stand casting mold industry in Europe, America and Japan.
According to the person in charge of the company, the customer requires a plastic machining cycle of 25s. Because the temperature of the PC material is relatively high, the cooling water path must be sufficient and uniform. 3D printing technology can perfectly solve this problem.
3D printing technology has a promising future
With the continuous development of 3D printing technology, it has been widely used in industrial vertical fields, so industrial applications will be the largest component of the cheap 3D printing market share.
As an international manufacturing city, Dongguan is driven by the continuous and rapid development of IT industry, precision machinery and other industries, and a number of hardware mold companies have emerged. Chang'an, Hengli and other places have also become important towns in the hardware mold industry in Dongguan. Relevant statistics show that every 100 million yuan in the mold industry can drive the development of about 10 billion yuan in related industries.
The combination of molds and 3D printing plans will have unexpected chemical reactions. One is an indispensable tool in modern industry, and the other is high-tech. The integration of the two will bring a qualitative leap for Dongguan's industry.
Dongguan is the main gathering place for the mold industry. Since the beginning of this year, more and more companies have started to launch 3D printing equipment. If 3D printing equipment is applied on a large scale in the future, it will subvert the production mode of Dongguan mold industry.
