Aluminium Alloy Mould Tools
Toolcraft used to offer aluminium alloy injection mould tools, made using alloys developed by Alcoa and IBM. They were a good choice for short to long run project (100s to 100,000s), because :
- They were cheaper and faster to make than a steel tool
- We used to increase the life of the tool by locally Nickel Cobalt plating it to Rockwell hardness 55.
- They were much stronger than the aluminium tools used for propotyping
However, nowadays we have a very successful Chinese Mould Tooling service, offering strong Steel Moulding Tools at very competitive prices + Toolcraft guarantees, leading us to largely phase out our aluminium alloy tooling service.
