    Jack Meher

      Hey all

       

      I've been working at an injection molding company doing cad drawings.  I constantly have to cross reference the type of mold material (Ex. 17.4 PH stainless) and match it to a common material is the solidworks material library (ex. Stainless Steel {ferritic}). 

       

      I need to know that material so that we can estimate the weight of the mold to make sure the cranes and forklifts can lift the Moldbase safely. also for when sizing the lifting bars for the mold.

       

      Is there a common tooling metals material library for molding materials like D2, O1, 420 Stainless and other mold base materials.
