Thin wall molds

Thin wall molds today are very popular among Plastic industries manufacturing products designed for Food packaging, medical usage, electrical appliances, telecommunication products and to a large extent in the automotive industry as well.

Thin wall product manufacturers focus on mass production and thereby achieving shortest possible cycle times in order to achieve their market demands. Products being light in weight and thin reducing the overall material costs and higher productivity can be achieved.

Usually thin wall products being used in food packaging are required to have excellent finish and no markings on the product. In order to achieve this the quality of injection molds is extremely important. These are molds which require skilled technicians and engineers for developing design and achieving precision. The mold maker ideally selects steel which are robust and can withstand high stress and pressures. Good mold construction through hardened steel and skilled crafting can ensure a long lasting mold.

Here is an example of high quality mold developed for thin wall cutlery. 8 cavity Spoon injection mold made in P20 steel. Watch test video:

Plastic crates is one of the most important products used  in Industrial Packaging. Crates come in different shapes and sizes serving a variety of purposes. The different types of crates include Vegetable crates, Milk crates, Fish crates, Multipurpose crates, Storage crates for Meat products, Flower crates and many more.
Crates are manufactured using different material grades of PP and HDPE depending on the utility and weight required for the crate the material is decided upon.

Crate mold development is not simple like other Plastic house ware articles. The mold manufacturing for crates requires experienced engineers for achieving the right design and quality for good production volumes without any glitches. 90% of the molds can be developed with automatic ejection systems and with hot runner (Branded and Good quality makes of China). Hundreds of crate molds are developed every year in China which are successfully running with small, medium and large scale plastic processors.
Sourcing from the right tool maker from China is important. Onemold has the key to right engineers with the right expertise for the right kind of crate design. Ensuring the steel quality, mold design, very good hardness and a high quality mold is essential.
The Mould structure
Every industrial product mould needs to achieve the exact part dimensions and part weights hence it is important to consider the shrinkage of the material after moulding. For this the gating system, cooling lines, quality of hot runners play an important role in achieving a good end product.
Mould cooling time in crates is the biggest factor to be considered for high end productions. Many tool makers use regular cooling designs for these product, however customized cooling systems need to be designed for every part separately. Optimization of cooling process can save many thousand dollars in the overall cycle period during production. Even cooling lines are considered as the backbone of the product function in many cases of industrial category especially in the cases of multi cavity complex moulds.

Given below is a recently fabricated mold drawing with test sample photos.
