This paper presents simulation study on Milled Grooved conformal cooling channels (MGCCC) in injection molding. MGCCC has a more effective cooling surface area which helps to provide efficient cooling as compared to conventional cooling. A case study of Encloser part is investigated for cycle time reduction and quality improvement. The performance designs of straight drilled are compared with MGCCC by using Autodesk Moldflow Insight (AMI) 2016. The results show total 32.1% reduction of cooling time and 9.86% reduction of warpage in case of MGCCC as compared to conventional cooling.
