Materion Performance Alloys has worked with MMT over the years providing technical content on a variety of mold material issues, including common mistakes with copper alloy usage and copper alloy classes. That education continues tomorrow, June 23 at 2pm EST when MoldMaking Technology hosts a webinar by Materion that will review the strengths and weaknesses of the copper alloys used in plastic molding today.

Topics will include: how copper alloys differ from steel in plastic molding,  how copper alloys can improve the plastic molding process and characteristics of copper alloys versus steel.

  • Choosing Thermally Conductive Tooling Materials

    By using alternative materials such as aluminum or copper-based alloys, moldmakers can help molders reduce or eliminate some molding problems down the road.

  • A Review of Copper Alloys for Plastic Injection Molding

    Copper alloys are attractive to the mold industry because of their high thermal conductivity, ease of machining by a variety of processes, and corrosion resistance to water, cooling fluids and the plastics being injected.

  • The Realities of Aluminum Tooling

    Using aluminum tooling instead of traditional tools steels reduces cycle time and costs, but requires up-front, open communications between moldmaker, molder, material supplier and hot runner manifold supplier.
