  • In China, custom injection mold making is normally described by a variety of criteria, including (1) number of cavities in the mold; (2) material of construction, e.g., steel, stainless steel, hardened steel, beryllium copper, chrome-plated aluminum, and epoxy steel; (3) parting line, e.g., regular, irregular, two-plate mold, and three-plate mold; (4) method of manufacture, e.g., machining, hobbing, casting, pressure casting, electroplating, and spark erosion; (5) runner system, e.g., hot runner and insulated runner; (6) gating type, e.g., edge, restricted (pinpoint), submarine, sprue, ring, diaphragm, tab, flash, fan, and multiple; and (7) method of ejection, e.g., knockout (KO) pins, stripper ring, stripper plate, unscrewing cam, removable insert, hydraulic core pull, and pneumatic core pull.

  • Single-cavity mold represents one of the simplest mold concepts. This design lends itself to low-volume production and to large plastic part designs. The multiple-cavity molds may be of two types. A dedicated multiple-cavity mold has cavities that produce the same part. This type of mold is very popular because it is easy to balance the plastic flow and establish a controlled process. In a family multiple-cavity mold, each cavity may produce a different part. Historically, family mold designs were avoided because of difficulty in filling uniformly; however, recent advances in mold making and gating technology make family molds appealing. This is the case especially when a processor has a multiple-part assembly and would like to keep inventories balanced.

China Injection Molding Plastics

China injection molding plastics

Cnmoulding is a professional plastic injection mold company and we special in plastic injection mold making and plastic injection molding production in china. Materials such as polystyrene, nylon, polypropylene and polythene can be used in a process called injection moulding. These are thermoplastics - this means when they are heated and then pressured in a mould they can be formed into different shapes

  • Plastic injection molding produces plastic parts by forcing molten plastic into a mold where it cools and hardens. In plastic injection molding granular plastic is fed by gravity from a hopper into a heated barrel. As the granules are moved forward by a screw-type plunger, the plastic is forced into a heating chamber, where it is melted. As the plunger advances further, the melted plastic is forced through a nozzle into the mold cavity. The mold remains relatively cold so the plastic solidifies almost as soon as the mold is filled. Custom steel tooling is required and adds to the initial cost but is quickly amortized.
    Plastic injection molding provides low cost at moderate to large quantities. Plastic molding is an extremely versatile process for producing a wide range of simple or complex plastic parts with a good finish. Almost any 2D or 3D shape can be achieved. However draft is required in most cases as the shape must allow ejection from the mold. Side holes and even threaded holes are possible though they complicate the tooling
