Performal® is the complete system developed by Texer to meet every need of the production of tool inserts with conformal cooling for plastic injection and light metal die casting.
Being exclusively designed to solve thermo-related problems, Performal® ensures cycle time reduction, maximum strength, defects elimination and longer life-time compared with traditional technologies.
We are able to take advantage of the possibility given by additive manufacturing combining 13 years of conformal cooling design experience and software for thermal and fluid dynamics simulation.
The SLM/DMLS technologies enable a geometric freedom that would be impossible with traditional tooling. Texer exploits these possibilities to build tool inserts with conformal cooling for better performance in light metal die casting and plastic injection.
