The Short Cycle
The most convincing arguments in
favour of MECOBOND® are economic. Reductions in cycle time of up to
50% have been recorded for serialproduction tooling.
The systematic high cooling
capacity dramatically shortens the solidification and cooling times for
castings of all types, whether they are thin-walled parts with large surface
areas, or more compact ones with widely differing wall thicknesses.
In a steel mold, the
"average" distance of the water-cooling system from the mold contour is 25
mm. The thickness of the steel contour in the MECOBOND® mold on the other
hand, is 6 mm, while the distance of the water from the contour remains
In this case, the MECOBOND® mold has four times the cooling capacity of the steel mold. This in turn leads to a considerable reduction in the solidification and cooling periods within the casting cycle.
