Due to many suppliers using the wrong grades of materials and poor design practices, Aluminum has been given a bad rap.

Used for years as just a “Tool” for quick, cheap and dirty prototype parts; Aluminum materials have struggled to get the necessary notice as a strong alternative to Steel tooling.

However, the Future is Today - not next year, and no matter what Mold Material is chosen, the following points are important and most vital when considering Aluminum Tooling:
A solid Part Design is key
The proper Mold Material is crucial with......Required resin, part geometry, and quantity of parts needed
Utilize experienced Aluminum Production Mold Companies that build and manufacture parts
Processors with an open mind
Good (Industry Standard) Mold maintenance
Utilize experienced Welder with proper Rod material if needed
Used today for cycle time advantage and lower tooling costs, high-strength Aluminum alloys are making an impact in the Medical, Automotive, Defense, and Commercial industries for a competitive alternative to steel.
