How long does it take to process plastic moulds?

The processing cycle of plastic moulds is subject to rigorous scientific calculations. It is impossible to just shoot the head and report the numbers to the customers. This mainly depends on the complexity of the design of the product, size, accuracy, quantity requirements, product performance and so on.

1. Product requirements: Different customers have different requirements for products. The designed surface is sub-surface or glossy or mirror, which affects the production cycle of plastic moulds.

2, product size: Yes, the larger the size, the plastic mould processing cycle will be correspondingly longer. The corresponding parts processing time will be longer.

3, product structure: refers to the structural difficulty of the customer to provide samples of plastic parts, generally can be understood as follows: the more complex the shape of plastic parts, the more difficult to make moulds. Technically speaking, the more the plastic parts are more than the parting surface, the assembly position, the buckle position, the hole position, the more the reinforcement position, the greater the processing difficulty, and the mould making time will be extended accordingly. In general, the more complex the mould structure is, the lower its quality will be, the more difficult it is to process, the more problems there will be, and the slower the final product will be.

4, the number of cavities of the mould: that is, a set of moulds have a few holes, a set of moulds produce a few products, depending on the customer product market is not big, do two products and a product is definitely different, processing Time will be different. Normally, because the new product has not been fully opened, the demand for the product is not so large. At this time, the number of injection moulds is not so much, and the market supply is guaranteed, and the cost performance is relatively high. Of course, after the market cultivation of the product is mature, the number of cavities of the mould must be increased. It depends on the demand of the market to determine whether to change the number of cavities to feedback the market demand.

5, product material performance: often our products have special requirements, mould steel requirements and processing requirements are also different, such as we Xing Hongzhan technology has done PC plus ceramic mould, the purpose of adding ceramics is insulation fire, generally used in Led lighting. The requirements for the mould are different. The mould needs to be hardened. After the hardening, the precision grinding machine will be secondary CNC. The subsequent processing will be more difficult. It will naturally take more time. Some moulds require anti-corrosion or soft rubber moulds. It will be different, and the manufacturing process will be more complicated.
