Gibbs recently made a significant investment in SLM Solutions additive manufacturing technology to improve the performance quality of our tools to a level we were not able to previously reach in-house. The technology allows Gibbs to create conformal cooled inserts used in tooling areas where it is difficult to get traditional drilled cooling lines. The inserts make cooling improvements to reduce solder build up which improves part quality and decreases downtime.
After programming a job, the additive manufacturing technology has the ability to run lights-out 24/7 and can be remotely monitored and controlled.
Gibbs COO, Harvey Dewan says, “Gibbs is proud to offer state-of-the-art tooling solutions to improve the outcome in challenging casting scenarios.”
