HEATER CASE – 1+1 CAVITY MOULD
  • Tire 1: Denso, europe
  • Oem: Peugeot
  • Project: hvac – mould developments
  • Part size: 419 X 336 X 225 & 379 X 349 X 285
  • Cycle time: 30 sec
  • Moulding machine: 1300T
  • Product and Mould Challenges
    • Mould quality at par with European standards of performance and cycle time.
    • Large number of critical dimensional requirements with extremely low tolerance levels.
    • Low general wall thickness - 1.6mm.
    • Fast cycle time despite multiple and complex mechanisms on both halves.
    • TAT of 110 days to T1.
  • DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION
    • With CAE analysis on Mould flow, introduction of conformal cooling through 3D Printed inserts, shorter cycle time was achieved.
    • Mould design based on mechanically operated sliders and lifters in place of hydraulics, in order to further optimize cycle time and established at 28secs.
    • Ease of mould maintenance due to front mounted design schemes for various inserts.
