Hot-runner maker Polyshot Corp. has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Plasel Mold of Lavon, Israel, to sell Plasel's injection molded mold cavities in North America.
Plasel has developed an injection molding process using powdered metal technology (PMT) to make precision mold cavities for high-cavitation applications.
Doug Hepler, president of Polyshot, called the Plasel system “game-changing technology” for the mold-making industry. “For high-cavitation molds, this technology delivers higher repeatability and greater precision than today's conventional metalworking process,” he said.
PMT mold cavities are injection molded from H-13 tool steel, then shipped, hardened to standard Rockwell hardness, said Polyshot in West Henrietta, N.Y.
