Plastic Injection Mold Design and Manufacturing
An efficient mold design is the critical link to shortening lead times for molds, to minimizing the mold pay back period, and to reducing part cost. A quality plastic injection mold design job shop will take the time to understand the project focus and will consider all possibilities toward realizing your goals. Slight changes to part design can often be the critical step to making a project reality.
Plastic injection mold design engineers have a warehouse of knowledge from which to draw your next project. For your convenience, these engineers can work with you to translate your design or prototype into a CAD format. The CAD design may be viewed on any PC by downloading a free viewer such as SolidWorksTM. Using CAD files instead of drawings significantly enhances the speed and accuracy of the mold design. After the CAD model of a component, part, or assembly is complete, the mold design must then accommodate many factors including:
- Cosmetic ramifications
- Mold longevity
- Tool production speed
- Mold cavitation/part costs
- Start-up costs
After approval, the CAD design then is passed directly to the job shop's mold manufacturing group. They will utilize CAD/CAM design and technology to minimize error and maximize quality and speed in producing your molds.
Look for a job shop that specializes in providing options that optimize your mold design from prototype to final production, exploring all possibilities and design alternatives, limited only by your needs, desires, and objectives.
