When to use diffusion bonding instead of 3-D printed inserts for conformal cooling in your injection mold (video)

Most people think of 3-D printed inserts when we talk about the conformal cooling process.

And we don’t disagree—we use 3-D printed inserts and think they’re great for certain molds.

However, when you’re working with a more complex mold, there is a better option:

Diffusion Bonding

Diffusion bonding allows for more waterflow, more consistent cycle times, and fewer problems from shrink, warp, and overheating.
