Mould Insert with Honeycomb Structure

These mould inserts are optimized with conformal cooling channels and were produced by SLM (Selective Laser Melting) allowing a more efficient cooling. The inclusion of honeycomb structure permits the reduction of weight, material and production time, while maintaining the mechanical integrity of the insert.
