Understanding injection molding and mold flow simulation
Designers, engineers and analysts use specific plastic injection molding simulation software, to improve the initial designs of plastic parts and injection molds.
There are several packages on the market such as Moldflow from autodesk. Another famous plastic inejction molding package is Moldex 3d, The software guides designers, mould makers, and engineers through simulation setup and results interpretation to show how changes to wall thickness, gate location, material, and geometry affect manufacturability.
The benefits of such simulation software are:
Injection Mold can be seen as a heat exchanger and needs cooling
It is utter important for mold designers and toolamkers to understand the heat exchange and Cooling Channel designs in the mold. Cooling time is around 50%-95 % from the total injection molding cycle, so a good designed cooling system can reduce the total mold process time. And thus saving costs .
12 tips of how to deal with Chinese factories'Made in China' can be found on many many products that are sold in Europe/Canada USA.. And although there are many prejudices of china manufacturing , there are also plenty of advantages. Note that what you are doing. For everyone who plans to be true in China to allow manufacture and import to the Netherlands, We reveal here-under 10 tips based on our own experiences .
Initially Molds are rather expensive but they are a good investment for your company if there will be continuous batch orders.per month or per year. In this case part prices will be low and mold cost can be amortized.
