With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018, Amerimold 2018 and IMTS 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: Uddeholm says that using Corrax additive manufacturing powder enables the creation of conformal cooling channels to reduce cycle times. The company had the powder on display at NPE2018.

Uddeholm announces the launch of Corrax additive manufacturing powder, a product designed for the additive manufacturing of tooling components. Uddeholm says that using Corrax additive manufacturing powder enables the creation of conformal cooling channels to reduce cycle times, among other possibilities. Uddeholm maintains that Corrax powder is excellent for additive manufacturing tooling applications because of high demand, short run series and the ever-increasing need for shorter lead times. Uddeholm exhibits at the NPE 2018 in booth S31061. It features its complete line of plastic tooling solutions in addition to Corrax additive manufacturing powder.

Uddeholm announces its 350th anniversary as a manufacturer of industrial tool steels in 2018. Based in Hagfors, Sweden, Uddeholm has delivered high-alloyed steels since opening in 1668. Uddeholm provides tooling solutions through technical know-how, advice and support to customers from over 90 countries around the world. Uddeholm serves customers in a wide range of industries, providing local stocking and technical support for tool steels, mold materials and specialty alloys. Uddeholm says that continuous development of new products and solutions has shaped the success of Uddeholm today. Uddeholm opened its first facility in the United States in 1925.

  • Can Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?

    With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number of flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
