injection mold manufacturing
1.Product design: Based on customer requirements or market demand, product design is carried out, including product shape, size, material, and other parameters.
2.Mold design: Based on the product design requirements, the structure, size, and hole shape of the injection mold are designed. Computer-aided design software is usually used for design to improve design efficiency and accuracy.
3.Mold material selection: According to the requirements of mold design and customer requirements, appropriate mold materials such as steel, aluminum, etc., are selected.
4.Mold processing: The mold design drawings are processed, including CNC processing, milling, drilling, grinding, and other processes to ensure the precision and quality of the mold.
5.Electrode processing: The electrodes are made into specific shapes for the mold.
6.Mold assembly: The various components of the mold, including the mold core, mold cavity, ejector pins, ejector pins rod, etc., are assembled, and the various parameters of the mold are adjusted.
7.Mold trial: After the mold is manufactured, mold trial is carried out to test the quality and performance of the mold. First, dry trial is conducted to check whether the core, cavity, and nozzle are normal, then wet trial is carried out to check whether various parameters during injection molding meet the requirements.
8.Sample inspection: After mold trial, the manufactured samples are inspected to ensure product quality and compliance with design requirements.
9.Modification and adjustment: Based on the results of mold trial and sample inspection, the mold is modified and adjusted to improve the performance and production efficiency of the mold.
10.Mold maintenance: Regular maintenance and repair of the mold are carried out to extend the service life of the mold and ensure its performance and quality.
The above is the detailed process of injection mold manufacturing, and the manufacturing process of different manufacturers may vary slightly but is generally similar. Injection mold manufacturing requires high-precision and high-quality processing technology and equipment, thus resulting in high manufacturing costs. However, it can also bring efficient production results and product quality.
