The Plastics Processing industry, like all manufacturing industries, is continuously striving to reduce cost of a plastic part – a goal mainly determined by three factors:
- The cost of plastic itself, relative to its weight.
- The cost of tooling used to shape it.
- Overhead costs, which are usually the most significant expense and largely dependent on production cycle times and tooling productivity. These three factors mainly determine the goal of the plastics processing industry, which like all manufacturing industries, strives to reduce the cost of a plastic part.
These can all be drastically reduced by using the right heat-conductive material in production tooling. AMPCO METAL offers a full range of innovative alloys with unparalleled heat conductivity and mechanical properties, designed to address the highly-demanding plastics industry and its production cycle times.
