Our injection molding process involves complex ribbing, over-molding, insert molding, numerous undercuts, and internal and external threads.

Create the Plastic
Injection Mold

In the injection molding process, the molten resin is inserted and cooled within the core of a metal die. The mold plates are constructed from high-grade steel, which renders them long-lasting. We handle over-molding and insert molding. External and internal threads are also common in our projects of injection molding.

Two-platen mold, Three-platen mold

Mold plates:
consists of core and cavities also called A-, B-Plate. In the mold plates, the injection molded part is formed by injecting the molten resin and then cooling it in the core and cavities of a metal die. Mold plates made from high-quality steel are essential for the long-last and high precision tooling.

The gating system is significantly different from the hot and cold runner.

Cold runner:
The cold runner is located in an area that spans the space between the tool cavity and the nozzle. Molten plastic is held within channels through hot temperatures and pressure from injection technology. Solidification of the injection molding is eliminated during the later processing stage.

Hot Runner:
Hot runner mold is more costly as a whole, but this system has distinctive benefits:

a. The raw material is saved, which reduces the total cost of molding
b. The surface has a uniform quality, which enhances the outside appearance
c. The increased efficiency and shorter cycle time conserves resources😨

The cooling system is utilized immediately following the injection because the plastic must cool to form the appropriate shape in the part. Temperature regulation requires a cooling system that can be controlled. In one particular cooling method, a water channel is introduced into the mold. This circulates water through the system and dissipates heat from the mold. Temperature controls exert a positive impact on molding processes in mass production lineups. This reduces the total time needed for cooling, and this improves the production cycle.

The demolding part of the process contains ejector elements, which are deployed after parts are cooled. This is the ejection portion of the system, and the pressure of the ejectors is responsible for separating mold parts in the core. The types of molded parts and their injection can determine the difficultly of the demolding procedure.

This process can be summarized in three ways:
a. The injection molded part with no undercut is demolded and simply stripped.
b. Injection molded parts with undercuts have a sliding unit, which gets inserted to remove from the mold
c. The injection molded parts with external or internal threads are stripped using a forced ejection method with rotating cores.

Projects can be started on the same day, as our services offer total solutions for injection molds. This workflow incorporates an online quoting procedure. This process goes from DFM to prototyping, structural design, mold making, tryouts, logistics, and after seals.

Design the Mold

Conduct a Feasibility Analysis

We complete a feasibility analysis based on a Design for Manufacturing (DFM) report. We then share our feedback with the client and offer useful suggestions to prevent errors during the production phase.Identifying problems in advance gives us the information we need to correct potential glitches straightaway. That reduces total costs and allows us to craft products of exceptional quality.

Complete a MoldFlow Simulation

Using the latest MoldFlow software, we can determine the ideal position for a mold as well as the optimum temperature control prior to commencing production of plastic parts. MoldFlow simulation is an essential component of the concept phase. It predicts the physical activity of plastic parts. By simulating the production phase prior to actual production, we can identify and prevent issues with weld lines, air pockets and dents.

Execute a Filling Analysis

Using state-of-the-art computer-aided design (CAD) software and computer-aided engineering (CAE) technology, we can accurately simulate an injection molded part before installing it and predict the fill status. Uneven mold fillings can change the shape of the finished part. An early MoldFlow analysis keeps that from happening.

Recommended cooling time in seconds is 2 x d² (d = wall thickness d).

A plastic part with a 2 mm wall thickness requires approximately eight seconds to cool. At 3 mm, the cooling time is 18 seconds.

hin walls make the injection molding process easier. Thin parts cool quickly while saving the material. Faster cycle times multiply hourly output while reducing production costs. Wall thickness is affected by the material used. The recommended wall thickness for injection-molded parts is between 2 mm and 4 mm. When injection molded parts have thin walls, they can be up to 0.5 mm. thin.

Make certain that rib thickness is below 60 percent of the nominal thickness. Keep rib height under three times the wall thickness. Maintain a draft angle of 0.25°. Ensure that alignment is perpendicular to the axis. Maintain rounded corners at the attachment points.

These thin, wall-like structures give injection molded parts rigidity and strength. Because they’re thinner than primary walls, ribs can support injection-molded parts as well as bosses by running perpendicular to these structures. The components can replace thick wall sections to prevent sink marks, warp, and voids. Ribs can also provide a part with flexural rigidity due to an increased moment of inertia.

We recommend an inner radius that’s equal to the wall thickness at least.

Rounded corners reduce internal stress concentration to prevent breakage. Sharp corners intensify internal stress concentration and can cause plastic parts to fail. Increased demand will also occur during the production process.

We recommend an inner radius that’s equal to the wall thickness at least.

When towing or ejection lines occur, plastic parts can be a challenge to eject.

We recommend omitting undercuts from the design. If they must be used, a moving slide unit must be installed in the tool. That raises costs significantly.

Grooves, notches, and other relief-like structures can interfere with the demolding process of an injection molding tool. If these structures occur in the injection molded part, they can cause unacceptably high levels of strain. The degree of strain depends on the size and position of the undercuts during demolding. Parts with large undercuts cannot be removed from a simple injection mold.

The following formula is used to calculate processing shrinkage:

  • S = (D – d) / D (× 100%)
  • D = dimensions of the cavity
  • d = dimensions of the injection molded part

This is inevitable during the injection molding process. Following injection, cooling reduces size and volume. The degree of shrinkage differs according to the materials used.

Cost Optimization

The total cost of production can be reduced through efficiencies in the process. This includes adaptations designed by a professional team of engineers. They create processes for reducing the cycle time, increasing the productive capacity, and trimming costs out of the process. Procurement and maintenance are also carefully scrutinized to avoid redundancies.

An outstanding parts design reduces complexity and eliminates unnecessary costs.

Injection-molded precision parts that require a high gloss finish also require extra manual grinding following production. That increases a mold’s manufacturing and maintenance costs.

Mass production of plastic parts requires highly sophisticated injection mold tooling. Increasing the number of cavities will increase production capacity. However, tools with multiple cavities have higher manufacturing costs.

The larger a part, the more material it requires. The more material, the higher the cost.

To accomplish a short cycle with plastic injection molding, the tool must quickly and uniformly cool the cavities. Precision molds speed up the cycle, but they also increase the cost.

An injection mold’s uniformity and cooling time determine the efficiency of the process. The shortest cycles are achieved with uniform cooling throughout the cavity. Cooling time differences can profoundly affect the mold manufacturing process.

Plastic injected parts that are volatile or corrosive can generate higher temperatures and additional pressure. The mold steel will require exceptional material properties to withstand the burden.

Gate location has a direct effect on molded parts. If the gate can’t be positioned on the mold side, the injection molding tool will need additional construction. Generous use of the hot runner system can up the tooling price. Nevertheless, it will lower the unit price of the molded part and the complexity of the tool.
