Before a plastic part gets produced, something else needs to be made: the tooling. And when it comes to designing the best tool, the leading option is aluminium. Why? There are several factors that make aluminium the ideal choice of material, including:
- Durability: Aluminum is sturdy so it can produce nearly any type of part.
- Cost savings: With only one major setup, it’s a more efficient way to create machinery.
- Sharp details: The material works for parts with close tolerances and tight specs.
To optimize the tooling for your part production, look for a manufacturer who will create the aluminium tool in house. That way, the designers who will produce your part can also be involved in the creation of the tool, providing added control and visibility for your run.
