An Approach of Rapid Tooling for Scalp Cooling Cap Design

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This Innovate UK funded research studies the design, development and integration of a replicable mass-manufacturable process for scalp cooling caps using 3D anthropometric human head data assisted by Selective Laser Sintered tooling (SLS), and implementation of Additive Manufacturing (AM) in silicone manufacturing for chemotherapy-induced hair loss prevention. This research also consists of how 3D digital technologies including 3D scanning, 3D modelling & virtual analysis, AM and Rapid Tooling (RT) can be effectively used in prototyping and low volume manufacturing of sheet silicone forming for creating complex geometry with channels where traditional tool making process cannot be applied.
