for the thermal capability and shorter cycle times of aluminum with the durability and service requirements of P20 tooling.
If you’re considering thermoplastic injection molding made with aluminum, you may also want to look at hybrid tooling. Hybrid tooling is a robust solution that combines materials for specific performance and production characteristics:
Aluminum inserts for faster heat transfer and shorter cycle times.
MoldMax (copper beryllium alloy with higher density than traditional tool steels) shut-offs for better thermal conductivity
P20 support system for mold durability and ease of maintenance
