Plastic injection and tool making are very peculiar markets, mostly driven by known patterns, human experience and best practices.
To help end users evaluate the advantages in using Alumold® 500, Constellium’s most performing alloy for making molds, we released a simple and powerful tool that will enable you to discover those advantages.
The Calculator is tailored to end users.
Tool makers can easily simulate the benefits of using Alumold500 over steel or pre-hardened steel.
Similarly, TierX are invited to use available CAE software to appreciate the reduced cycle-time thanks to Alumold500. The Calculator is expected to display the comparison of a program total cost and unit costs of parts made with Alumold tools vs steel tools.
Our team of experts do encourage mold makers and TierX to use:
