The manufacturing process for Mold
parts is complex. Before your parts are even molded, we're there to
help you with comprehensive manufacturability feedback and consultative design
services, so you can avoid mold design pitfalls before the resin hits the mold.
From there, our production process is documented and optimized using scientific
molding so you get high-quality parts...
MaterialsA 3D printing material is suitable for
creating injection Mold
parts if it has:High temperature resistance - A high heat deflection
temperature is required to withstand the mechanical and thermal loads applied to
the mold during material injection. Note though that the temperature decreases
rapidly during solidification.High stiffness/toughness - Repetitively
Gate / Runner Location: This is one of the most important
factors to consider during the Filling Stage of the injection
processCoolant Lines: Poor placement or inadequate number of cooling lines
result in long cycle times and warpageShrink Rate: Shrinkage is generally between 0.4 - 2% and must be taken
into account by the mold designer. The exact amount of shrinkage depends on...
The application method for HC (Heat Cure) and HCF (food-grade Heat Cure)
parts coatings is the same, done at room temperature in the tool
room. You can use a microfiber swab or cloth, depending on the actual mold
configuration.Apply a small amount of coating to the swab or cloth and apply
to the surface in one direction. When this is done correctly, the surface should...
While small in size and simple in design, bushings play an
important role in high-stress applications where vibrations are problematic.
Automotive suspension systems, for example, often feature control arms with
bushings that connect the vehicle’s struts or shocks to the chassis. The control
arms themselves are metal, but the bushings are padded with a soft material that
1. Detailed Features and Complex GeometryThe injection Mold
parts are subjected to extremely high pressure. As a result the
plastic within the molds is pressed harder against the mold compared to any
other molding process. Due to this excessively high pressure, it is possible to
add a large amount of details into the design of the part.Furthermore, due to high pressure during the...
When you think of the great inventions of modern history you probably
think of automobiles, airplanes, computers, and other revolutionary innovations.
While these developments are vital, have you ever considered the multifaceted
manufacturing processes, materials, and design applications their production
entails? Plastic mold
factory would tell you answers.Many people are unaware of...
One of the keys to the accurate and efficient creation of small plastic parts is
having a mold that is perfectly designed for the task at hand. There was a time
when toolmakers were generalists who could create Mold
parts to meet any specs. Today, however, with advances in everything
from the design of parts to the materials used to make them, that’s no longer
In the last few years, plastics have displayed greater promise in manufacturing
than metal. As a result, we are likely going to see an increase in the number of
tools using plastics.Here are some great tips to ensure that your
organization’s costs remain as low as possible:Simplify your designIt is not necessary to make a complex,
fully dimensioned drawing to design a Mold...
Plastic Injection Moulding TermsThe plastic injection moulding process forms
plastic into a durable, resinous material that can be shaped into almost any
form imaginable. The very first injection moulding machine was invented and then
patented in 1872 by brothers John and Isaiah Hyatt. Plastic mold
factory introduces some terms to
you.When first invented, the plastic injection...
