Our Expertise

With an unwavering commitment to innovation and excellence, AMPCO METAL stands at the forefront of expertise in plastic processing. We have a wide variety of high-conductivity alloys carefully designed to improve the efficiency of plastic molding tools. Our special alloys, like AMPCOLOY® 83, AMPCOLOY® 940, and AMPCOLOY® 944, have a one-of-a-kind blend of qualities that include thermal conductivity, hardness, corrosion resistance, and wear resistance.

AMPCO METAL’s Chairman, Mr. Luis J. Bento, highlights the significant effects of our alloys on cycle times, reporting they have reduced cycle times by up to 80 percent. These high-quality copper alloys possess exceptional heat transfer properties that lead to reduced warping, better heat removal, and longer service life.

Consequently, manufacturers involved in plastic injection molding gain a competitive advantage in a challenging and rapidly changing industry. AMPCO METAL excels in increasing productivity and providing high-quality and efficient outcomes across the entire production process.

Our Products for the Plastic Industry

AMPCO METAL is proud to offer a wide range of innovative products designed to meet the various needs of the plastic processing industry. Our alloys are well known for their toughness, high conductivity, and outstanding mechanical properties. Specifically formulated to enhance the conductivity, hardness, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance required for plastic molding tools.

Notable offerings include AMPCOLOY® 83, special copper beryllium alloys, and alternatives such as AMPCOLOY® 940 and AMPCOLOY® 944, which have better conductivity than traditional beryllium copper alloys. These alloys pass rigorous testing and bring significant benefits, such as increased productivity, better product quality with less warping, and extended service life because they quickly equalize temperature.

The use of AMPCOLOY® alloys reduces machining costs and provides more design options for cooling channels. AMPCO METAL is dedicated to improving plastic processing, as shown by their wide-ranging product line that helps manufacturers achieve high efficiency and excellence in their operations.
