Perfectly cooled! Moulds without hot spots

Economic solutions for tooling and mould-making
Securing competitive advantages and getting to the market faster is the name of the game nowadays in almost all sectors of industry. As a renowned supplier to the plastics-processing industry and in aluminium die-casting, Concept Laser GmbH benefits from many years of experience. The use of mould inserts with conformal cooling delivers quality optimisation while reducing the unit costs at the same time.



Metal Machine Solutions using LaserCUSING® Technology, a cutting edge technology from Concept laser is now available in Australia and New Zealand from Objective3D. The term LaserCUSING® – made up of the letter C from Concept Laser and the word FUSING for „complete melting“ – describes the technology of the future. The fusion process with patented „stochastic exposure“ generates complex component geometries layer by layer using 3D CAD data. LaserCUSING® opens up unimagined possibilities. New product ideas and mould inserts which can be subjected to high mechanical and thermal loading can already be produced today. Individually, fl exibly, quickly and cost-effectively!



LaserCUSING® MOULD INSERT DELIVERS QUALITY BENEFITS

  • Shortening of the manufacturing time for mould inserts
  • Shorter reworking time, since there is no rough machining process required.
  • Less warping and shrinkage holes: Increase in quality and/or reduction in the scrap rate.
  • High-quality product delivers considerable competitive advantage.
  • Cycle time saving of 20-30% and more means: Lower unit costs


MATERIAL CHOICES
The LaserCUSING® machines are suitable for processing the following material groups: Stainless steels, hot-work steels, stainless hot-work steels and nickel based alloys



APPLICATIONS

  • LaserCUSING® mould insert for aluminium die-casting (oil pump housing) manufactured on M1 cusing / material CL 50WS (1.2709) / measurable advantages thanks to integration of a conformal cooled tool insert in cavity 2: signifi cantly improved product quality thanks to the reduction of cavity formation. 50% less scrap rate based on the target error characteristic. Warping on the cast part considerably reduced. Time and cost saving.
  • LaserCUSING® mould insert for an injection-mould to produce lenses for sport glasses in serial production manufactured on M1 cusing / material CL 50WS (1.2709) / measurable advantages thanks to the patented conformal surface cooling: reduction in the cycle time and quality optimisation.


  • LaserCUSING® mould insert for vacuum cleaner lid injection-mould in serial production manufactured on M1 cusing / material hot-work steel CL 50WS (1.2709) / measurable advantages thanks to patented conformal parallel cooling: quality optimisation, reduction in the cycle time and unit costs.

Delivering High Quantities of Prototypes Fast

Objective3D Direct Manufacturing produces parts using a range of additive and conventional manufacturing technologies. We offer tailored solutions for your project’s needs. If your project requires larger quantities of small parts – fast, Laser Sintering is the best technological solution for you. Per-part pricing is reduced as quantities increase, but there are more advantages to using Laser Sintering for small prototypes than price alone.

Laser Sintering (LS) provides strong, versatile and geometrically intricate components made from filled and un-filled nylon materials that are ideal for fit and form verification and functional testing. Prototypes made with LS are created quickly and offer robust solutions for your project.
FAST Delivery Laser Sintering can provide sturdy, functional prototypes as little as 24 hours. Multi-component designs can be incorporated into single structures, allowing engineers to produce complex features and geometries in one print, and eliminating the need…

Commodore Ute to US: 100,000 votes needed!

According to The Age Drive and an article by Barry Park, we are again set to export our Commodore Ute to the US.

The article is as follows:

US website rallies to GM's Twitter call of 'If you ask for an El Camino ute, we'll do it'.

An off-the-cuff quip from General Motors' newly appointed chief marketing officer could be just the thing to help Holden's cause to sell the Commodore ute in the US.

Joel Ewanick, who made the jump from Hyundai to the US car maker late last year, recently joined the social networking service Twitter. He soon started interacting with Chevrolet fans, with many of them asking for the car maker to re-introduce a vehicle based on a cross between a truck (ute) and a car.

In response to one passionate request for a new-age El Camino, Ewanick wrote: ''Well, we need you and 100,000 more of your best friends.''

Canberra para-athlete Scott Reardon wins gold with 3D Printed Spike Plates

Canberra para-athlete Scott Reardon has sprinted his way to gold at the IPC Athletics World Championships in Doha with victory in the T42 100m for leg amputees.

The fastest qualifier coming into the finals, Reardon, using a 3D Printed Spike Plate, got his nose in front to stop the clock in a time of 12.13 seconds - a mere one-hundredth of a second in front of Russia's Anton Prokhorov.
It was sweet revenge for Reardon, the 25-year-old having to share the gold medal two years ago at the world championships in Lyon in 2013 with Germany's Heinrich Popow​.
"You come to championships to win championships and that's the most important thing," Reardon said.
"I probably didn't get the time I wanted, but when people look back, how I got there won't matter. "It will just show me as world champion, and that's so exciting."
The result is the culmination of more than a decade of determination and training.

The Spike Plates which Reardon used in the …
