Moulding and die casting can be very difficult. However, a PVD coating can provide numerous benefits that simplify the process and greatly lower manufacturing costs:

Increased Speed

You can run the tools faster, which shortens cycle times so that components can be produced more quickly. As the coating decreases the objects’ stickiness, the melt inside flows faster and more easily fills the mould.

Improved Final Product

This lack of sticking also makes it easier to release the mould. This decreases the chance that the final product will be distorted, while also improving the final surface finish and increasing the product’s resilience so that it will last longer.

Longer Lasting

The coating also greatly increases the moulds’ service life so that they don’t need to be replaced as frequently. The moving parts are also protected against scuffing.

Easy to Clean

As there are fewer deposits at the end of the process, the moulds are much easier to clean.

No Expensive Lubricants

The increased ease of flow means expensive lubricants aren’t required.
