Summary
Design features and configuration of modular turbulent inserts (MTI) that boost the cooling of cavities for polymer processing (blow molds and injection molds) in straight-line cooling channels were proposed. The MTI inserts were made with the fused deposition modelling (FDM) technology for rapid prototyping in order to experimentally verify their efficiency at the designed test stand. Selected configurations of MTI inserts in tubular cooling channels were evaluated. The desired effect of cooling time reduction was achieved in each of the analyzed cases.
