2016/11/2 10:31:10

Micon Plastic Mould design is the first and very important step in mould manufacturing. A good design helps to reduce cost and improve efficiency. Today we will talk about how to design a mould. What are the steps when we are receiving a mould enquiry?

1) Get to know the product feature in every shape in order to work out a reasonable mould design for preparation.

2) According to the product display status in the maximum projected area to decide cavity and core based on process method and molding technology.

3) Once the core and cavity confirmed, we have to define the parting surface. The parting surface directly influences the product sprue line and the complexity of the mould.

4) According to the production output and product features to decide the mould cavities.

5) According to product feature and mould layout to decide runners and the entrance way of polymer flow.

6) Based on product features and mould processing technology to decide the inserts and their positions.

7) If there is lock on the product edge side, then we have to decide and design the lock position.

8) To decide the ejector rod position.

9) To decide the cooling water channel location.

10) After all the above confirmed, and then decide the size of the core and cavity.

11) The last thing is to decide the size of mould base. It is better to choose standard mould base and very important if product requiring high precision.

Micon Plastic Mould has not only progressed with the technological demands, but has met new demands head on. Due to the increasing create smaller, thinner container, our Thin wall container mould are built with highest technology and with great consideration to balanced cooling, easy of maintenance and longevity. This helps our Thin wall container mould to achieve shorter cycles, and consistent part quality.
