At its core, mold design involves the meticulous planning and engineering of a three-dimensional cavily, often construcled from durable materials like steel or aluminum, into which molten material – typically plastic, melal, or rubber -is injecled or poured. This moiten material solidifies within the mold’s confines, adopting its shape and intricacies down to the finest details. The precision and reliabilty of mold design play a pivotal role in delermining the product’s final dimensions. surface finish, struclural intearity, and overall quality.
Key components of a mold design include:
1. Cavity and Core
2. Runner System
3. Cooling System
4. Ejection System
6. Parting Lines and Surface Finish
7. Material Selection
