Which CAD software can help you to do 3D Mold design?

The main methods for creating designs are solid modeling and surface modeling. Surface modeling was the earliest form of CAD. It is based on shaping surfaces by pulling, bending, twisting and stretching them until the required shape is created. The surfaces can be joined together to enclose a volume and so represent complete objects. Solid [...]

Are Two-color Molding and Overmolding the same molding method?

Two-color molding may also be referred to as 2-shot molding, bi-injection molding, co-injection molding, or multi-shot injection molding, which produces a part with two different colors and/or materials in a single operation. A two-color mold is able to combine two resins with different characteristics and colors into a single two-color product, which reduces the assembly [...]

Some experience in making excellent hot runner molds

Too often, mold builders tasked with delivering a complete, production-ready hot runner mold work in haste to design the mold and system. They look online and order what they believe is needed but realize too late that the various components won’t fit or work together as expected. If decisions are rushed or poorly informed, the [...]

Some Experience In Automotive Lamp Mold Design

Explanation of car lamp mold design Car headlight reflector (also known as mirror) is a part of car headlight illumination system that reflects function to avoid direct light. It is located inside lens and decorative frame, assembled with lens. Lens can be seen from outside of lamp through lens. Plastic parts are appearance parts, surface [...]

How to Solve Conventional Tolerancing Problems in Mold Design

Actually we knew at the core issues associated with the common practice of conventional (±) tolerancing, including origins of measurement, repeatability of sizes and centers, orientation and angles and tolerance accumulation. Here, we will address these issues using the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing standard (ASME Y14.5 GD&T). Geometric Dimensioning and [...]

How to understand the bilateral tolerance in mold design

As a decision-maker in the manufacturing sector, you are familiar with (if not a devotee of) Lean, Six Sigma, Operational Excellence and similar continuous improvement approaches. One of the essential takeaways from continuous improvement technologies is that you need meaningful data to make decisions. For example, suppose you are like most mold manufacturers and rely [...]

Do you understand the cost of injection molding?

Plastic injection molds cost anywhere between $100 for a 3D printed low-volume injection mold to $100,000+ for a complex multi-cavity steel mold for high-volume production, which generally represents the most significant fixed start-up cost in injection molding. However, as these costs get distributed among hundreds or thousands of parts, injection molding is an ideal process [...]

Additive manufacturing can help the development of your injection molding part

Ten years ago, there was a broadly accepted and well-defined route that a product developer might travel to take a product from concept to actual part. Generally, that path would include 2D and 3D drawings of the components and their assembly, which would go through various prototyping stages in low-cost, low-volume manufacturing methods such as [...]
