What is plastic injection mold?

Plastic injection molds are designed as hollow metal blocks with cavities used to shape molten plastic through the injection process. There are many holes inside the mold, and the temperature can be controlled by means of oil, water or heater.

Gates in the mold allow molten plastic to flow in, which then fills the cavity through runners and gates. After cooling, the mold is opened, and the ejector pin of the injection molding machine is pushed by the top plate to further eject the molded part.

  • Guide Pins– Installed to one half of the plastic injection mold and align the two halves by entering the holes in the other half. the most function is to locate the core and cavity insert in right position, avoid steps on parting line of molding parts or mismatch between two halves of molds.
  • Runner– Connect the sprue bush to molding cavities, it is a passageway of flow material, the section shape is usually round or trapezoid.
  • Gate–The narrowest position of the runner, where the flow material enters the molding cavity. There are many different types, some will be broken from molding part when ejecting out. such as submarine gate, tunnel gate. Some need to be cut after molding. like tab gate, side gate and so on.
  • Sprue (Bush) – Tapered hole in the center of the plastic injection mold into which the flow material travel from the nozzle of injection machine to runners
  • Locating Ring– Locating the plastic injection mold on the fixed platen of injection machines, so that the injection nozzle lines up with the sprue bush.
  • Mould Cavity(include cavity and core)– The space in the mold shaped to produce molding product.
  • The ejector (Pins)– Push the runner and molding parts out of the mold
  • The Shot– Total amount of material into cavities, include runner and molding parts
  • Ejector plate/Ejector backplate: Just for hold the ejectors in the right position
  • Clamping plate: Clamping the mold to the platen of injection machines

Why we choose plastic injection mold(molding)?

As a highly accurate processing approach, the plastic injection molding process is able to be used to produce diversified plastic parts of almost any types. Though certain design restrictions do exist, the injection molds are made to ensure the great precision of the molded products. As a matter of fact, the precision of the finished products can be kept within 0.005in.tolerance.

Plastic injection molding is known as one of the most commonly used technologies for long production periods because it is very fast. But, how fast? Though its production speed may be dependent on the complexity of the mold structure, there is only about 15 to 30 seconds interval between cycle times.

The injection molding equipment requires minimal human supervision, of which the reason is that they usually work with a self-gating and full automatic tool, so as to realize streamlined operation and continuous production.

Nowadays, a lot of attention is paid to sustainability, so it is very common for product developers to opt for a process that would help with environmental protection and waste elimination. Not only is the plastic injection molding a highly efficient and effective process, it is also very resourceful. The reasons are i. only the needed amount of plastics is used to produce the desired product; ii) excessive materials will be recycled for further use.

In addition, the plastic injection mold making process is not only accurate, it also features great flexibility. It means that it is very easy for us to change the material type as well as the color for our production once we made a mold. also when you want to change the shape of the product, we just need to remove or add some steel to achieve it.

The density of the plastic material is much lower than metal, and plastic injection molding is one-time shaping process without second machining. so it is much cheaper than metal.
