The presentation proceeds to explain the design process of TPMS structures through simulation techniques. This design approach optimizes the cooling system's performance by tailoring it to the specific contours and requirements of the tool or mold. The use of simulations ensures that the TPMS structures are both effective and efficient.
Furthermore, the presentation showcases an experimental application of TPMS in a cooler system that utilizes CO2 as the cooling medium. This practical demonstration illustrates the real-world benefits of TPMS structures in enhancing the cooling process.
Overall, this presentation highlights the importance of additively manufactured TPMS structures in achieving contour-adjacent cooling, ultimately improving the quality and efficiency of tool and mold manufacturing processes.
