Battery Plate Mould

Battery Plate Mould












APPLICATION

Battery Plate Mould

SECTOR
  • Machinery Manufacture – specifically the automatic casting of lead battery plates
  • Automotive
GRADE
SUITABLE TO REPLACE
  • Steel
  • Sand Castings
ADVANTAGES
  • Better machinability – self lubricating – chip generating
  • Better surface finish
  • Shorter deburring time
  • Good vibrational absorption
  • Good thermal conductivity
  • No shrinkage or porosity
  • Lighter than steel
  • Finer grain structure than with sand casting
COST SAVING
  • No pattern costs
  • No rejected parts
  • Extended tool life because of no sand inclusions and self lubricating properties
  • Smaller machining allowance
