Design Considerations for Different Types of Plastic Injection Molds
When an injection mold designer is approached to build a mold for plastic components, there are many critical design considerations for different types of injection molds, regardless of the industry. Plastic injection molding is the manufacturing process of choice for engineers seeking plastic parts for their products ranging from toys and combs to high-precision molded parts required in several different industries. Some of these industries include:
- Consumer Electronics
- Government / Military
Engineers are seeking quality-minded injection mold building companies with modern equipment, CAD (Computer Aided Design) Capabilities, Mold Flow Analysis, Prototyping Services, and experience building a variety of tools for use in different molding situations. Mold makers and engineers alike are aware that in order to obtain a quality part, you must begin with a quality tool. The term tool and mold are used interchangeably to describe the steel plates with cavities to form a plastic injection molded part. The accurate designing of those cavities in the steel is the key to obtaining a part molded to customer specifications.
