What is plastic injection mould?
Plastic injection mould is the Tooling or Matrix that use for injection moulding plastic product, most plastic parts around the life, is moulding by plastic injection mould, such as keyboard, mouse, case of phone, garbage basket and traffic light etc.
Mould design is including DFM, Mould Flow Analysis, 2D Mould Layout and 3D Mould Drawing. It is part lay out, part line making, gate design, runner design, gating way, ejection method, cooling layout, etc.
Mould making is based on mould design and purchase mould base, steel and component by machined by CNC, EDM, Lathe, Gun Drill and Milling etc., make mould fitting and mould trial in the end. To see the idea into real by mass production.
Mould trial is the last processing to check if the work is making well. You will get the moulded part to inspection specification. Make decision if itt is ok or NG after mould trial.
It is difficult to say, such as a house. The lowest is 2000 usd for prototype simple and small mould. Maybe 200 thousand for high precision multi-cavity mould.
Can I make a plastic injection mould by myself?
It is impossible for a man, except you have a complete company. It is a system project. It is easy to make prototype part by SLS, SLA, CNC machining or 3D printer. Let’s the professional guy do professional work. We are glad to make plastic injection mould for you.
