Advantages of Steel Over Aluminum for Injection Molds

Some injection molding companies use steel molds, and some use aluminum molds, for various reasons. There are pros and cons for each of the materials, but here at ICOMold we make steel molds because of the advantages they offer to our customers. One advantage is that steel is more easily modifiable in the case of a part design change. Another advantage is better durability.
