The injection molding process, usually used when the parts are too complex or cost prohibitive to machine, effectively produces many parts out of the same mold body. Injection molds are typically expensive to machine, and injection molding machines can be costly to run; thus process improvements to reduce costs are wise investments.
Depending on the application, ACS can offer a variety of PVD coatings that add value to mold components and reduce total cost. First, the combination of high film hardness and low friction coefficients impart the favorable properties of:
