Cleveland-based Brush Wellman Inc. is promoting its MoldMax copper-nickel alloy, in the shape of forged rings, for plastics molds.
"Historically, mold makers were required to purchase rings that had been cut from plates, resulting in high percentages of wasted plate and increased expense," said Doug Veitch, director of plastics tooling at Brush Wellman.
The forged rings meet the needs of makers of molds for pails and other circular parts and containers. The forged rings perform better than cast rings and can withstand the demands of high-volume molding, the company said.
