iTherm® Chill Vent is produced from tool steel forged or rolled blocks using HTS proprietary additive manufacturing technology.
It is a single body component with equal mechanical properties as tool steel monoblock.
It has only two connectors for the cooling medium (IN and OUT).
Cooling channels can be freely designed according to cooling/heating requirements of the cast part, not by limitations of using conventional drilling methods.
It is highly customizable to specific customer requirements.
More freedom designing cooling channels
In comparison with conventionally made cooper or steel vent, iTherm® Chill Vents give you extra flexibility to bring cooling channels closer to the critical zones.
Safer casting operation
In comparison with conventionally made cooper or steel vents, iTherm® Chill Vents have a large venting profile and the highest cooling power that guarantee immediate freeze of molten metal, making operation safer.
Less unplanned stoppages
In comparison with conventionally made cooper vent, iTherm® Chill Vents are more wear-resistant and have a longer lifetime. This is directly reflected in less unplanned production stoppages.
Less porosity in the cast part
High cooling power obtained by conformal-cooling circuit permits a large venting profile, assisting the elimination of porosity in the cast part
