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 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.
