voestalpine Inserts for Food Container Lids


designed for pure performance

Our Inserts for Food Container lids have optimized conformal cooling solutions, enabling our customers to run a stable and highly efficient production with a minimized cost per plastic part produced.

With more homogeneous temperature distribution, our inserts enable improved productivity and can reduce the overall cycle time by up to 15% compared to conventionally manufactured products.

Many producers of food container lids have tested our AM solutions and confirmed the increased profitability by using our corrosion-resistant Inserts for Food Container Lids.

Customer Benefits
  • Improved cycle time up to 15% –> increased productivity
  • Homogeneous temperature distribution due to conformal cooling -> less warpage (improved part quality)
  • Higher wear resistance –> lifetime increase compared to copper beryllium inserts
  • High ductility –> safety against cracks
  • Corrosion resistant material –> improved crack resistance
