Vacuum Brazing Meets Additive Manufacturing for Optimized Conformal Cooling

Renishaw and Liechtenstein-based Listemann Technology have joined forces to service moldmakers with the optimum conformal cooling solution. Depending on the application and desired reduction in cycle time, the companies now jointly design and create conformal cooling channels either through vacuum brazing, laser sintering or a combination of both to find the most suitable and cost-efficient design for their customers.
