With the increase in plastic production and the expansion of application fields, higher and higher requirements are put forward for plastic molds, which promotes the continuous development of plastic molds. At present, plastic molds are developing in the direction of high efficiency, high precision, and long life. The rapid development of plastic mold materials.
What is an injection mold?
Injection mold is a tool for producing plastic products; it is also a tool for giving plastic products a complete structure and precise dimensions. Injection molding is a processing method used in the mass production of some complex-shaped parts. Specifically, it refers to injecting the material melted by heat into the mold cavity by high pressure, and after cooling and solidifying, the molded product is obtained. Most of our commonly used plastic products are produced by injection molds. For example, the plastic products on computers, mobile phones, automobiles and other products are basically produced in large quantities by injection molds.
Application areas of injection molds:
Injection molds are important process equipment for the production of various industrial products. With the rapid development of the plastics industry and the promotion and application of plastic products in the aviation, aerospace, electronics, machinery, shipbuilding and automotive industries, the requirements for molds are becoming more and more important. The higher comes, the traditional mold design methods can no longer meet the requirements of today. Compared with the traditional mold design, computer-aided engineering (CAE) technology is either in terms of improving productivity, ensuring product quality, or reducing costs and reducing labor intensity. In all aspects, they have great advantages.
All kinds of CNC machining are used in the processing of injection molds. The most widely used are CNC milling and machining centers. The applications of CNC wire cutting and CNC EDM are also very common in the CNC machining of molds. Wire cutting is mainly used in various Kinds of straight-wall mold processing, such as concave and convex molds in stamping processing, inserts and sliders in injection molds, electrodes for EDM, etc. For mold parts with high hardness, machining methods cannot be used, and most of them use EDM. In addition, EDM is also used for sharp corners, deep cavity parts, and narrow grooves of the mold cavity. The CNC lathe is mainly used to process standard parts of mold rods, as well as mold cavities or cores of revolving bodies, such as injection molds for bottles and basins, and forging dies for shafts and disc parts. In mold processing, the application of CNC drilling machines can also play a role in improving processing accuracy and shortening the processing cycle.
Molds are widely used, and the forming and processing of product components in the modern manufacturing industry almost require the use of molds.
