Dimensionally stable reflow polishing of molding tools

Project Details


In spite of the technological development most of molding tool polishing is still performed by hand with uneven quality as a result. A new glazing method achieves a better and more uniform surface finish.
The concept is inspired by nanotechnological processes used in the semiconductor industry
The project will ensure a significantly shorter turnaround time for polishing as well as a much bigger polishing capacity – both will be of great value for the end users.
The manufacturing of larger product series typically also requires a large number of molding tools – many of these series of tools require months or years of total polishing time. The aim of the project is to establish a European service center, which offers polishing of all types of molding tools within 24 hours.
