Inserts can be drilled, milledand grindedusing normal process of machining. The tool life is guarantee up to 500 K shotwhile aluminium mold up to 10K shots. The lead time is shorter compare to hard tool. For Proto Tool or toolingwith low volume requirement. What is hard tooling? Hard tool is production tooling that requires high quality .
