Additive Manufacturing Plays Increasing Role in Hot StampingJuly 31, 2019
3D printing tooling via newly developed powdered tool steel delivers an alternative to long tooling lead times while enabling design freedom. This is especially important in hot stamping, which often requires intricate cooling channels. Efficiently designed tooling also offers the opportunity to reduce cycle times—another hot stamping challenge.
That’s the word from Dr. Harald Lemke, chief commercial officer at Formetrix and a speaker at MetalForming magazine’s upcoming Hot Stamping Experience and Tech Tour, September 17 in Lapeer, MI. Read more on hot stamping trends and technology from Lemke and other conference speakers...and be sure to reserve your event spot.
