Plastic injection molding Manufacturing

Plastic injection molding Manufacturing

Plastic Molds and Plastic injection molding is one of the most commonly used molding processes used globally. There are many interesting facts regarding plastic injection molding machines. Injection molding machines vary in sizes they can range to a size of table to as large as your whole room as well. Some injection molding machines have the capacity to produce around 200million plastic molds in one year.

The prices of injection molding machines are also very high. A latest technology molding machines can easily cost $750,000. There are also some molding machines which requires no human resource to operate them they are totally automated. Molding machines needs to be operated with lot of safety and precautions because if a person’s gets in between the mold during the production run the person will be completely crushed into half. Plastic injection molding machines also requires a lot of maintenance which mostly depends on the number of hours the machine is operated daily.

In order to produce consistent plastic parts that too at the fastest cycle time possible to reduce injection molding cost, you need to basically produce its parts in the injection molding process, because it helps in designing and building a mold that will help achieve the above target. There are plastic types that need a cold mold whereas there are some that require hotter mold.

You can do the better cooling mold in various ways depending up the type of plastic to reduce cycle time, but there is this common practice that is followed at a large scale for doing the cooling mold is by drilled holes which basically create a circuit consisting of an in port as well as an out port. This practice is suitable for plastic parts which happen to be square or rectangular. They can also be made the most of by using them in the mold plates as per the need.

By using this method, you are potentially saving more money because this method happens to very economical when it comes to installing water into an injection mold. Just as you would do the cooling of the mold, it is advisable that you do the heating mold up to 200°F. In case the plastic you are dealing with, requires some hotter temperature, then you will need to use hot oil in the waterlines.

 

We have shared with you some of the most common options that you find available for doing mold cooling in injection molding. There’s this point which must not be done and should be avoided which is to not let mold size as well as the mold cost cause you to actually clear off the corners on the mold cooling by cutting.

It is a headache to run into the problem of product mucosal in injection mold  parts, it not only requires a lot of manpower and material resources to take product out from the mold, but also affected the company’s production efficiency, increasing cost to the company.

But how can we solve the problem of injection mold products mucosa?

At first, we should find out the reason of mucosal. As follows:

1.Bad polishing , for example, it is stick before the mold, May be because after the die polishing better than the previous die polishing   Die tryout mold in the production process directly stick in the former mould.

2. Draw taper design may be unreasonable. In theory, front mould draw taper   is larger than rear mould draw taper. Putting the draw taper in wrong side may also result to product sticking in the former mould.

3. The exits of a vacuum lead to product binding on the front mould.  It is a common phenomenon to the Shell, box products.
4. Bad polishing may lead to the rear mould mucosa.mold manufacturing in China

5. Mold temperature is too low at the beginning, the product hold too much power to the product.

So we have understanding the reason of mucosal in the test mould, our suggestion of the problem as follows:

1,We must pay more attention to the front mould, the front mould’s polishing should be better than rear mould.

2, For the box, shell and other products, if there is vacuum in front mould, we should use exhaust pin to eliminate the influence of vacuum, but sometimes rear mould need exhaust pin too.

3, If product structure asking for the mould the temperature, we should increase the temperature when testing mould.

4, We can set reasonable injection parameter according to the characteristic of the plastic raw materials, then reducing the possibility of plastic product’ mould sticking.

What is DFM-Design For Manufacturing

What is DFM-Design For Manufacturing

Design For Manufacturing ( DFM ) is the the company’s initial idea prior to mold plastic parts design. Its main target is how to design the mold core part of a plan to meet the requirements set plastic parts. Its content is mainly formed of the gate, parting surfaces, core-pulling ideas.

  • gate design: by the Pro / E of Plastic Adviser of the plastic parts were filled gate position and performance analysis, can find the appropriate position into the plastic. Since the gate point is set in the shape of the surface of the plastic parts, the need to minimize traces of pouring, and taking into account its own mold can pull waste drying track, so a point into the plastic.

  • sub-surface: Plastic Housing Knobbie open mode direction is vertical upward, and set draft is of 1 °. Sub-surface plastic parts should be selected in the bottom surface, it is a good mold release and will not affect the appearance of the quality of the plastic parts can also use the gap and core, thimble, etc. into the sub-gap discharge. To facilitate the process, improve accuracy, the child in plastic molded side hook grooves. This allows the shape of the sub-surface of a plane, more convenient
  • pulling mechanism design: careful observation of three-dimensional model of the plastic parts can be found there is a need to use the slider slot for easy mold after molding. It requires the use of angle pin block side parting pulling mechanism.

H 13 mould steel and H 13 die steel mechanical properties

4Cr5MoSiV die steel die steel, referred to as H13, is a kind of air cooling type heat hardening die steel, wCr=5%, the hardenability of $150.m steel is very good, under air cooling can be hardened. H13 die steel temperature has the toughness and wear resistance of high strength, good heat in, under working temperature with thermal fatigue performance, good anti in addition, good oxidation resistance, small distortion of heat treatment. The mechanical properties of Hl3 die steel Higher Hl3 die steel heat resistance and wear resistance, and toughness similar hardenability is good, is a good material for the production of forging die. Due to higher toughness, even in the quenched state also have certain toughness, thermal fatigue resistance is particularly good, so use it for making high speed hammer forging die is very ideal, and sometimes also used for the production of die casting mold, extrusion mold etc.

Plastic Mold  maintenance and repair matters needing attention

Mould repair note:

1 disassembling the mould, avoid bumping and the water spray, mobile tostationary.

2 spray hot die, then spray a small amount of release agent

3 to conduct a comprehensive inspection of the mold and anti rust treatment: carefully wipe dry cavity, core, the top of the water and sundries institutions and for position and other parts, and spray mold antirust agent and butter.

Maintenance of the mold

In the process of plastic mould in continuous work, due to wear, easy to cause themovement of parts in the process of lubricant deterioration, leakage,pressure injury issues such as plastic materials, the need for mold maintenance.

Mold maintenance is generally divided into the daily maintenance and lower die maintenance

Mold maintenance generally include the following aspects:

1 regular derusting (appearance, PL surface, cavity, core etc.)

2 regular re add lubricant (ejection mechanism for etc.)

3 regular replacement of wear parts (rod, bolts etc.)

4 other places that need attention

Die mold maintenance required by the professional maintenance staff will die after removal of the mold cavity of the mold, a thimble test protection professional.
