Conformal Cooling:
Need of The Hour
Conformal Cooling is being referred to as the next big thing in the tooling industry. With its’s unique value proposition such as saving time in cooling process and providing uniformity in cooling, it has witnessed an increase in demand. However, building conformal cooling channel is no easy task and it looks like additive manufacturing (AM) is the only option. To find out more, I speak with two industry experts Jayesh M. Rathod, Sr. General Manager & Head, Diecasting Engineering, Godrej Tooling and Arpit Sahu, Director, Objectify Technologies to understand the fundamentals of conformal cooling, benefits of the process, and the future outlook.

““OEMs should work closely with tooling suppliers”
“The Indian die mould makers need to be aware that their responsibility doesn’t end on providing a good quality mould. They should also ensure smooth functioning of the mould for the benefit of the end customer. Unless this support is extended, the moulds being supplied will not be viable for the end customer,” says N Prabakaran, Managing Director, DIETECH India (P) Limited.

Safety norms and BS VI transition will drive auto ancillaries revenue growth in FY2020
Higher content per vehicle to support new emission and safety requirement is expected to drive demand for auto ancillaries despite relatively muted auto original equipment manufacturer (OEM) demand. As per ICRA’s note on the auto component industry, the weighted average growth in demand for auto components from OEMs is estimated at 9-10% in FY2019 (as against 9.5% in FY2018) supported by strong commercial vehicle (CV) volumes. The growth for FY2020 is likely to be around 8-9% Y-o-Y. This is taking into consideration the likely automobile volume growth of 8-9% during FY2019 and ~7% during in FY2020, as against 14.5% growth during FY2018 and 5.4% during FY2017.

Don’t Worry, It’s Cool – The Power of Conformal Cooling
In today’s world of plastic injection, there are several factors driving long cycle times. Thermal control of the mold is the most influential aspect. With the inability to evenly cool an injected part, the cycle times run long, warpage is increased and the end product is plagued with tension and stress which often ends with parts failing quality control.
