The working principle of injection mold
To put it simply, the molds and tools needed to produce products are obtained through various different methods, which are called molds. With this mold, the same type of products can be produced in batches, which is an important symbol of industrial development. Let me tell you about the working principle of the injection mold!
The injection mold is composed of several groups of parts, and there is a molding cavity in this combination. During injection molding, the mold is clamped on the injection molding machine, the molten plastic is injected into the molding cavity, cooled and shaped in the cavity, and then the upper and lower molds are separated, and the product is ejected from the cavity and out of the mold through the ejection system, and finally the mold is closed For the next injection, the entire injection molding process is carried out cyclically.
Injection molding is the most commonly used method in plastic processing. This method is suitable for all thermoplastics and some thermosetting plastics. The number of plastic products produced is unmatched by other molding methods. As one of the main tools of injection molding processing, the injection mold is in terms of quality accuracy, manufacturing cycle and injection molding process. The level of production efficiency and other aspects directly affects the quality, output, cost and product update of the product, and also determines the ability and speed of the enterprise's response in market competition.
The injection mold design is composed of several steel plates with various parts. It is basically divided into: forming device, positioning device, fixing device, cooling system, constant temperature system, runner system, ejection system, and depending on the type of casting system. The plastic mold design is divided into three categories (1) Large nozzle injection mold design: runners and gates are on the parting line, and they are demolded together with the product when the mold is opened. The design is the simplest, easy to process, and low cost, so More people use large nozzle systems for operations. (2) Design of injection mold for fine nozzle: runners and gates are not on the parting line, but are usually directly on the product. Therefore, it is necessary to design an additional set of nozzle parting lines. The design is more complicated and the processing is more difficult. Generally, it depends on the product requirements. Instead, use a fine nozzle system. (3) Hot runner injection mold design: The structure of this type of mold is roughly the same as the nozzle. The biggest difference is that the runner is in one or more hot runner plates and hot nozzles with a constant temperature. There is no cold material demoulding, and the runner And the gate is directly on the product, so the runner does not need to be demolded. This system is also called a nozzleless system, which can save raw materials. It is suitable for situations where the raw materials are more expensive and the product requirements are high. The design and processing are difficult, and the mold cost is relatively high. high.
With the rapid development of the plastic and plastic mold processing and molding industry, plastic molds also emerged at this time. Now the quality requirements for plastic mold processing are getting higher and higher, which provides a huge impetus to the development of the plastic mold processing industry. .
The structural adjustment of the plastic mold industry is constantly accelerating, and the number and capabilities of market-oriented professional plastic mold manufacturers are also growing very fast. According to the analysis of production, sales, market conditions, industry structure, products, and import and export of the plastic mold design and manufacturing industry, and referring to the development trend of plastic mold related industries, the future development space of my country's plastic mold design and manufacturing industry is very broad. .
