Developing Plastic Parts Tooling


In order to create well-shaped, durable plastic parts that fall within design specifications, it is vital to have high quality plastic parts tooling. A mold used in the injection molding process should be long-lasting, minimize waste and consistently produce a part that meets design specifications.

There are many factors to take into consideration when developing a mold to be used in plastic parts production. Will the part be used in delicate medical applications, or is it intended to withstand the rugged environment of a pickup truck’s engine compartment? Will the plastic part be made from an amorphous material like PVC or a semi-crystalline plastic like polyethylene? Is this mold intended for a prototype build of a few hundred units or for a mass production build? These features and many more are used to determine the best way to design the plastic parts tooling.
