HOW TO EXTEND SLEEVE LIFETIME COST EFFECTIVELY

Casting process wise it is important that plunger consistently moves through the sleeve, and ensure seal between the shot sleeve and the plunger. Effective management of the gap between the sleeve and the plunger mainly comes down to two areas, good thermal management of sleeve and plunger, and dimensional stability of the sleeve.
Below we discuss how to ensure maximum dimensional stability of the sleeve to expand its lifetime and assure optimal cost efficiency.
