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:

  1. The cost of plastic itself, relative to its weight
  2. The cost of tooling used to shape it
  3. Overhead costs – usually the most significant expense and largely dependent on production cycle times and tooling productivity

Cycle times can be drastically reduced by using the right heat-conductive material in production tooling.

AMPCO METAL offers a full range of innovative alloys with outstanding heat conductivity and mechanical properties designed specifically to address the highly-demanding plastics industry.
