Plastic Mold Design

When designing a plastic mold, some factors should be taken to reduce the cost and complexity of parts.

Design Rules

Undercuts:

reduce as many undercuts as possible, including external and internal undercuts, as well as side-action directions. A trick for removing the need for additional slides is creating a pass-thru core.

Wall Thickness:

maintain an even wall thickness to prevent wall sink, thinner walls can reduce cycle time and cost.

Drafts:

the standard draft angle is about 1° to 2°. parts can be designed with a minimum draft angle of 0.5°, or up to 5°.

Rapid Design Molds

The mold in plastic injection molding is a hollow metal block into which molten plastic is injected to form a fixed shape. Many holes are drilled on the mold for temperature control through hot water, oil, or heater. The molten plastic flows into the mold through the gate and fills the cavity through the runner and gate. Then the mold is opened after the cooling process, and the ejector rod of the injection molding machine pushes the top plate of the mold to further eject the mold.

Rapid molds are ideal solutions for part design validation, rapid prototyping, low volume production, and bridge production quantities. If you are looking for a reliable company for small-batch runs of injection molded parts, Junying is providing rapid molds for making inexpensive plastic parts efficiently.

How to Make Injection Mold

Injection mold is a tool used for producing plastic parts by the injection molding process, it gives the molded components complete structure and precise dimensions. How to make or manufacture injection mold?

1) Analysis of plastic parts

Before the mold design, the designer should fully analyze whether the plastic products conform to the injection molding processing principle. It includes necessary discussion on the geometric shape, dimensional accuracy, and appearance requirements of the products to avoid unnecessary complexity in mold manufacturing.

2) Mold design

A set of high-quality molds not only needs good equipment and skilled mold-making workers but also a very important factor is good mold design. An excellent mold design has the advantage of low production cost, proper difficulty, and short cycle time and meets the requirements of customers. The design specifies where liquid plastic will enter and flow within the mold’s cavity.

3) Determine mold material and select standard parts

In the selection of mold materials, in addition to considering the accuracy and quality of products, the correct selection should be made in combination with the actual processing and heat treatment capabilities of the plastic mold manufacturer. In addition, in order to shorten the manufacturing cycle, existing standard parts should be used as much as possible.

4) Mold making and assembly

In addition to giving the best structure and reasonable tolerance during the design, the accuracy of the mold is very important for manufacturing and assembly. Therefore, the choice of machining accuracy and machining method plays an absolutely dominant role in mold manufacturing. Using milling, drilling, and turning, a rough shape will be sculpted out of a solid bar of steel or aluminum during the initial machining phase. Subsequently, the final shape will be created through precision machining.

5) Mold trial

For the error caused by the inconsistency between the predetermined shrinkage and the actual shrinkage, whether the demoulding is smooth or not, how the cooling effect is, especially the influence of the size, position, and shape of the gate on the accuracy and appearance of the product, it must be tested through the mold test.

Injection Molding Processes – Types of Injection Molding

From sketch to functional parts, our injection molding services can help you get the final products through multiple molding methods based on applications, materials, sizes, and more factors.
Custom plastic injection molding

A plastic manufacturing process using polymers or plastic resins after being heated, melted and injected under high pressure into an injection mold to obtain molded parts with the desired shape.

Liquid Silicone Rubber Molding

The injection molding of liquid silicon rubber (LSR) to manufacture pliable and durable parts, the process involves mixing together a two-component compound, then heat-cure it in the mold with a platinum catalyst. LSR parts can endure severe temperatures, making them perfect for engine components.

Overmolding

A type of injection molding that consists of multiple steps and is used to form one component made of plastic over the top of another component. A substrate is typically an injection-molded object made of plastic, although it might potentially be made from a wide variety of other materials.

Insert Molding

The process of molding or creating plastic components around other, non-plastic components, sometimes known as inserts, is referred to as insert injection molding. While the inserted component is often a straightforward object, inserts themselves can be somewhat complicated.

What is Injection Molding?

Injection molding (moulding) is the most commonly used manufacturing process for manufacturing plastic parts. It refers to the method that under a certain temperature, the plastic material completely melted by screw stirring is injected into the mold cavity with high pressure, and then cooled and solidified to obtain the injection molded product. This method is really cost-effective and it’s suitable for the mass production of complex shape parts. Molding also has the highest variety of materials, colors, and configurations when compared to CNC machining or even 3D printing. Beyond materials, injection molded parts can have custom cosmetics, polishes, or surface textures. There are mainly six steps in the plastic injection molding process, including clamping, injection, dwelling (molding), cooling, mold opening, and product removal, As shown on the right.

– Short shot

– Flash

– Silver streaking

4. What are your tolerances for molded parts?

Generally, the tolerance can be as low as +/- 0.003 in. (0.08mm), with a resin tolerance that can be greater than but no less than +/- 0.002 in./in. (0.002mm/mm).

5. What is the difference between forming and molding

Molding or moulding is a manufacturing process that involves shaping a raw material that is either liquid or pliable by employing a rigid frame known as a mold or matrix. It’s possible that this was constructed using a pattern or a model of the thing that would ultimately be created.

Forming is the process of changing the shape of a product that is only partially finished, such as sheet metal, by the use of plastic deformation. The process of shaping a piece of sheet metal involves applying force to the item in order to modify its shape rather than removing any material.

Both molding and forming shape the material while not removing any of it, but molding is done using a mold, and forming is completed through suitable stresses such as compression, shear, and tension.
