AMPCOLOY® 944: Beryllium Free Mold Material
Product Announcement from AMPCO METAL
AMPCO METAL introduces a new copper-nickel-silicone-chromium alloy developed as an alternative to beryllium copper for industrial applications requiring a combination of strength and high thermal conductivity. These unique properties of AMPCOLOY® 944 are attained through specially-developed and proprietary manufacturing processes and complex alloy compositions. Indeed, this ground-breaking new copper alloy, AMPCOLOY® 944, provides the right balance between an average hardness of 28 HRC and a thermal conductivity of 150 W/mK, 4 to 5 times greater than P20 tool steel, and electrical conductivity of app. 35%IACS.
Typical applications include :
Resistance and Spot Welding
