Creating cavities within products is an efficient method of reducing the volume of material used and reducing the weight of an object. Such cavities, if created haphazardly, can have severely detrimental effects on the parts performance. If design correctly, however, they can be a supremely efficient method of weight reduction.
At Within, we take advantage of cavities far beyond their obvious uses and optimise them to enable characteristics that enhance the performance of the part. Placing a cavity within a product in the right way can aid in tailoring the stiffness and centre of gravity of the object.
Through Additive Layer Manufacturing, objects can be manufacture hollow without the need for multiple and complex moulds. For simple and non-critical objects, hollowing out can be a suitable method of reducing the amount of material used, saving costs.
