8.6. High-Precision Tool for Double-Sided Molding

On the one hand, the hot embossing tool described above is well suited for the cost-efficient molding of parts molded. On the other hand, this tool can also be used with an alignment system for double-sided molding. In this case, demolding has to be done manually at one of the microstructured mold inserts, which will increase the risk of damaging the structures. A new concept for double-sided high-precision molding was developed by the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe (Fig. 8.21, [5]). This concept also includes an advanced heating concept to reduce cycle times and especially a demolding concept for double-sided molding. Compared to the basic tool described above, the high-precision tool developed ...
