KYLT Plastic Injection Molding Services

KYLT Plastic Injection Molding Services involve: Plastic Molds making & Plastic Injection Molding Parts Manufacturing, and other plastic parts finishes processes. 
A plastic injection mold is a tool or die used in the plastic injection molding process. It is typically made of steel and is designed to create the desired shape and features of a plastic part. The mold consists of two halves: the cavity side, which forms the exterior of the part, and the core side, which forms the interior. The molten plastic is injected into the mold cavity, where it cools and solidifies, taking the shape of the mold. Once the part is cooled and solidified, the mold is opened, and the molded part is ejected. 
Injection molding parts refer to the plastic components produced through the plastic injection molding process. These parts can be of various shapes, sizes, and complexities, depending on the design of the mold. Injection molding is widely used to manufacture a wide range of parts in industries such as automotive, electronics, medical, and consumer goods. The process offers high precision, repeatability, and efficiency, making it suitable for producing large volumes of plastic parts.

Plastic Injection Molding Parts & Plastic Molds Manufacturing Services Process

Plastic Injection Molding Detail Steps:

Mold design:
The first step is to design a mold for molding. The design of the mold takes into account the shape, size, and other specific requirements of the final product.
 
Material preparation:
Select suitable plastic raw materials and heat them to a molten state for injection into the mold.
 
Injection molding:
Molten plastic is injected into a pre designed mold cavity. Usually there are two half molds, one moving and one fixed. Fill the mold cavity with plastic and then cool it down.
 
Cooling and curing:
Plastic is cooled in a mold and gradually solidified into the desired shape. The cooling time depends on the type of plastic and product size.
 
Demolding:
Once the plastic is fully cured, the mold is opened and demoulded from the mold.
Once the plastic is fully cured, the mold is opened and demoulded from the mold.
 
Post processing:
The completed parts may require the removal of excess materials, surface treatment, or even assembly.

Components of A Plastic Injection Mold

The following are the main components of plastic injection molds, but depending on the complexity of the product and mold design, they may include other components or functions.
 
 

Mold Components

 

Description

 

1

Mold base

 
A sturdy base that holds all the other components of the mold together. It provides support and stability to the mold.

2

Cavity plate

 
The cavity plate is the part of the mold that forms the shape of the final plastic product. It contains a cavity or multiple cavities that fill with molten plastic to create the desired shape.
 

3

Core plate

 
The core plate is the counterpart to the cavity plate and creates the internal shape of the plastic product. It also contains a core or multiple cores that help form the desired shape.

4

Sprue bushing

 
The sprue bushing is the entry point for the molten plastic into the mold. It connects the injection machine to the mold and allows the molten plastic to flow into the mold through a runner system.

5

Runner system

 
The runner system is a network of channels that distribute the molten plastic from the sprue bushing to the cavity. It helps control the flow and distribution of the plastic within the mold.

6

Ejector pins

 
Ejector pins are used to push the finished plastic product out of the mold once it has cooled and solidified. They are typically located on the core side of the mold.

7

Cooling system

 
The cooling system consists of cooling channels or circuits that circulate coolant, 
such as water, to remove heat from the mold. Proper cooling is crucial to ensure the plastic product solidifies properly and minimize cycle time.

8

Venting system

 
The venting system consists of small vents or channels that allow air or gases to escape from the mold during the injection process. This helps prevent air traps, voids, or other defects in the finished product.
9

Guide pins and bushings

 
Guide pins and bushings ensure proper alignment and movement of the mold components during the production process. They help maintain precise positioning and assist in opening and closing the mold.
10

Mold inserts and lifters

 
Mold inserts are additional components that can be inserted into the mold to create specific features or details in the plastic product. Lifters are used to create undercuts or features that require additional mold movement during the ejection process.

Plastic Injection Mold Types

 

 

Mold Types

 

 

Description

 

1

Two-plate mold

      This is the most basic type of injection mold, consisting of two plates that come together

to form the mold cavity and ejector system.

 

2

Three-plate mold

 

Similar to the two plate mold, but with an additional plate called the runner plate that separates the mold cavity from the runner system. This allows for easier removal of the molded part and reduces cycle time.

 

3

Hot runner mold

 

In this type of mold, the runner system is heated, allowing for direct injection of the 

molten plastic into the mold cavity. This eliminates the need for a separate runner plate

and reduces material waste.

 

4

Cold runner mold

 

In contrast to a hot runner mold, a cold runner mold has a runner system that is not 

heated. This can result in more material waste, as the runner system needs to be 

removed from the molded part after injection.

 

5

Family mold

 

A family mold is designed to produce multiple parts simultaneously, using multiple 

cavities within the mold. This is useful for high-volume production and can reduce costs.

 

6

Insert mold

 
An insert mold allows for the insertion of pre formed components, such as metal inserts, into the mold before the injection process. This is commonly used for parts that require additional strength or functionality.

7

Overmold

 

This type of mold is used to combine multiple materials or colors into a single molded 

part. It typically involves molding one material over another to create a finished product

with enhanced aesthetics or functionality.

 

8

Stack mold

 

A stack mold consists of multiple mold surfaces stacked on top of each other, allowing 

for multiple parts to be produced in the mold at the same time. This can significantly 

increase production efficiency.

Plastic Injection Molding Parts Surface Finishes

The choice of surface finishes depends on the specific requirements of the plastic injection molded products and the desired aesthetics. KYLT, as the “One-stop, Full services” Plastic molded parts manufacturer can provide a range of surface finish options to meet the customer's needs.
 

 

 

FINISHES

 

DESCRIPTION

1

Smooth or glossy finish

 

This is achieved by polishing the mold surface before injection. It results in a shiny and  reflective appearance.

 

2

Matte finish

 

This involves using a textured mold surface or applying a matte coating to create a  

non-eflective surface. It can help to hide imperfections and provide a more natural appearance.

 

3

Texture finish

 

Different textures can be added to the mold surface, such as leather, wood grain, or stippling. 

These textures enhance the visual appeal and feel of the product.

 

4

Color finish

 

Plastic injection molded parts can be colored using various methods such as pigmentation, 

painting, or coating. This allows for customization and branding options.

 

5

Polished finish

 

Specially designed polishes and buffing methods can be used to give the part a smooth and 

shiny appearance.

 

6

Bead blast finish

 

Small glass or ceramic beads are blasted at high pressure onto the molded part's surface. 

This process creates a uniform, matte finish with a slightly rough texture.

 

7

Laser etching or engraving

 

Laser technology can be used to create intricate designs or patterns on the plastic part's 

surface. This can be useful for branding purposes or adding product-related information.

 

8

Molded-in-texture

 

The desired texture or pattern is directly added to the mold itself, resulting in a consistent and durable surface finish.
