	%X The cooling channels of injection mould play a crucial
role in determining the productivity of moulding process and the
product quality. It’s not a simple task to design high quality cooling
channels. In this paper, an intelligent cooling channels design system
including automatic layout of cooling channels, interference checking
and assembly of accessories is studied. Automatic layout of cooling
channels using genetic algorithm is analyzed. Through integrating
experience criteria of designing cooling channels, considering the
factors such as the mould temperature and interference checking, the
automatic layout of cooling channels is implemented. The method of
checking interference based on distance constraint algorithm and the
function of automatic and continuous assembly of accessories are
developed and integrated into the system. Case studies demonstrate the
feasibility and practicality of the intelligent design system.
