Lu Yuehong, Tang Lihua
With the rapid development of 3D printing technology, it is gradually applied in the fields of laboratories, enterprises, homes, etc., when the surface of automotive cooling plastic molds is processed, it has the advantages that other molding methods are incomparable, the prototype materials required in the manufacturing process and the performance is also gradually improving, and the application range of mold production and processing will become larger and larger. In the future, the traditional processing methods of the mold industry will be integrated with 3D printing technology. This paper starts from the development of 3D printing principle and technology, analyzes the status quo of 3D printing technology, and focuses on the application of 3D printing technology in rapid sample development, complex mold manufacturing, lightweight product manufacturing, creative product customization, etc. in automotive cooling plastic mold manufacturing. . The application of 3D printing technology to automotive cooling plastic mold manufacturing not only accelerates the design and manufacturing speed of plastic molds, but also overcomes the warping deformation caused by uneven cooling of conventional plastic molds, and can greatly shorten the cooling cycle and increase production efficiency.
