Rubber extrusion tool
Benefit: Cost Saving, Increased Component Complexity
Main Forming Process: Additive Manufacturing
End Use Sector: Engineering

Description

Traditional manufacturing of rubber extrusion tool involves many operations like electro-discharge machining, high-precision machining, threading, soldering and assembly. However, using additive manufacturing, it was possible to print the tools integrated with the internal air channels and threads. To achieve the required mirror blank surfaces, extrude honing was used with diamond-based suspension. This resulted in significantly shorter manufacturing time and hence time to market.

Benefits

  • Reduced manufacturing time
  • Increased part functionality
  • Improved production flexibility
