The issue of injection mold opening cycle cannot be generalized. It must be considered from multiple factors, mainly from the design structure, size, requirements, number of holes, and product performance of the product. Today we will briefly explain it to you. , How long does the injection mold opening cycle take?
Product structure: refers to the structural difficulty of the plastic part samples provided by the customer. Generally, it can be understood as follows: the more complex the shape of the plastic part, the more difficult it is to make the mold. Technically speaking, the more parting surfaces of plastic parts, the more assembly positions, buckle positions, hole positions, and rib positions, the more difficult the processing will be, and the mold making time will be extended accordingly. Generally speaking, the more complex the mold structure, the lower the quality, the greater the processing difficulty, the more problems, and the slower the final product effect.
2. Product size: Yes, the larger the size, the longer the plastic mold processing cycle will be. The corresponding spare parts processing time will also be longer.
3. Product requirements: Different customers have different requirements for products. Whether the designed appearance surface is sub-surface, smooth or mirror surface, which affects the production cycle of plastic molds.
4. Product material properties: Often our products have special requirements, and the requirements for mold steel and processing technology are also different, such as molds for medical and cosmetic packaging materials, the purpose of adding ceramics is to insulate and fireproof, and is generally used in LED lighting. The requirements for the mold are different. The mold needs to be hardened. After the hardening, the secondary CNC of the precision grinder will make the subsequent processing more difficult, which will naturally take a little more time. Some molds require anti-corrosion or soft plastic molds. will be different, and the manufacturing process will be more complicated.
5. The number of cavities of the mold: that is, how many cavities a set of molds have, and how many products a set of molds can produce, depends on the size of the customer's product market. There must be a difference between making two products and one product. The time will also be different. Normally, since the market for new products has not been fully opened, the market demand for this product is not so great. At this time, the number of injection molds does not need as many holes, and the market supply can be guaranteed, and the cost performance is relatively the highest. Of course, after the product market has matured, the number of cavities in the mold will definitely increase. It depends on the market demand to determine whether to change the number of cavities to feedback the market demand.
