Over the long period of mould production, the designers and producers of moulds, as well as molders, are trying to use different technologies for achieving the optimal product quality. Only the integration of modern CAE technologies, rapid prototyping and rapid tooling technologies into the real mould production can solve more and more demanding problems. The project will do the research of the implementation of fully integrated 3D cooling system in the mould, which will have the same distance form, the mould surface to the cooling line, since the conventional cooling lines are described as 2D lines. In case of 2D lines, the temperature field in the mould cavity is not uniform, what cause unpredictable deformation of the plastic part after ejection. With the help of this project, the molders, as the indirect end users, will have the opportunity to produce much safer products and the production will be increased as well. The mould makers, as direct end user of this technology, will be able to integrate sophisticate technology into the mould production and become more competitive in the world market.
