iTherm® P-plate

iTherm® Tool Plate 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 cooling water (IN and OUT).

Cooling channels can be freely designed according to cooling/heating requirements of the moulded part, not by limitations of using conventional drilling methods.

It is highly customizable to specific customer requirements.

HTS DIFFERENCE

INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY

Based on MFT™ technology we produce components with conformal cooling / flow design and mechanical properties of a forged tool steel block.

SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE

iTherm® components have a big impact on cooling and material flow, resulting in shorter cycle times, higher cast/moulded part quality and subsequentially also productivity.

SOLUTION ORIENTED

Years of experience and R&D of HTS Group companies, combined with leading OEM customer partnerships gives us knowledge and capacity to help you improve your productivity.

Advantages over conventional P-plates

More freedom designing cooling channels

In comparison with conventionally made P-plate, the iTherm® P-plate gives you extra flexibility to bring cooling channels near the critical zones.

 

No leakage

iTherm® P-plate is manufactured as a tool-steel monoblock with only two connectors for cooling water (IN and OUT) on a side of the plate, so no leakage is possible.

Temperature homogeneity of the working surface

In comparison with conventionally made P-plate (left image), using iTherm® P-plate (right image) the heat is distributed much more evenly across the working surface, resulting in more even cooling.

 

Shorter cycle time

The cooling Power of iTherm® P-plate correlates directly with production cycle time and productivity.  50% cycle time reduction can be achieved by replacing conventional with iTherm® P-plate.
