Do you know all six types of plastic molds?

Plastic mould is a tool for plastic processing industry and plastic forming machine. According to the different molding methods, can be divided into different mold types.

1. Injection mold
It mainly is the most widely used in the production of thermoplastic plastic products of a forming mold, injection mold corresponding processing equipment is injection molding machine, plastic first heated melting within the bottom heating cylinder injection molding machine, and then in the injection molding machine screw or plunger, driven by the injection molding machine nozzle and mould gating system into the mold cavity, cooling hardening molding, plastic mold release products.
Its structure usually consists of forming parts, pouring system, guiding parts, pushing mechanism, temperature-regulating system, exhaust system, supporting parts and so on. Injection molding processing methods are usually only applicable to hot plastic products production, with the production of injection molding plastic products is very broad, from daily necessities of life to all kinds of complex electrical appliances, auto parts and so on are made of plastic injection molding, it is the most widely used in the production of plastic products of a processing method.

2. Blow molding mould
Used for molding plastic hollow container class products (such as beverage bottle, cosmetic products all kinds of packaging containers) of a mold, blow moulding main form according to the process principle of extrusion blow molding hollow molding, injection molding, main form according to the process principle of extrusion blow molding hollow molding, injection blow molding hollow molding, injection stretch blow molding hollow molding (commonly known as note blow), multi-story hollow blow molding, sheet molding hollow molding, etc.
The equipment corresponding to blow molding of hollow products is usually called plastic blow molding machine. Blow molding is only applicable to the production of hot plastic products. Blow molding mold structure is relatively simple, the materials used are more carbon than manufacturing.

3. Extrusion die
Used for forming a class of continuous shaped plastic products mold, also called extrusion head, is widely used in pipe, bar, monofilament, sheet, film, wire and cable coating layer, the processed profiles etc.
Corresponding production equipment is plastic extruder, its principle is solid plastic in heating and extruder screw rotation pressure under the condition of melting and plasticizing, by the mouth of the specific shape mould, made of a section with the mouth mould for plastic products of the same shape. Its manufacturing materials mainly include carbon structural steel, alloy tools, etc., some extrusion dies will be inlaid with diamond and other wear-resistant materials on wear-resistant parts.
The extrusion process is usually only applicable to the production of thermoplastic products, which is structurally different from injection moulds and pressure moulds.

4. Blister mould
With plastic sheet, a sheet as raw material to shape some simple a mould of plastic products, its principle is to use the bloom method or compressed air vacuum molding method makes on the die or punch with plastic board, sheet, under the condition of the heating softening deformation and posted in the mold cavity of the required molding products, mainly used in some daily necessities, food, toys, packaging products production.
Because the pressure of the plastic mold is low when forming, the mould material is mostly made of cast aluminum or non-metal material with simple structure.

5. Compression mold
Including compression molding and injection molding two types of structural mold. They are a kind of mould mainly used for forming thermosetting plastic, and the corresponding equipment is pressure forming machine.
Compression molding method based on the characteristics of plastic mold is heated to molding temperature (generally in the 103 ° 108 °), and then measuring good molding powder into the mold cavity and loading chamber, the closed mold, plastic in high fever, high pressure under the action of a softening viscous flow, after a certain period of time the curing finalize the design, become the required products shape.
Injection molding and compression molding different is no single loading chamber, forming mold before closing, plastic in the feeding room, preheating is viscous flow state in the stress under the action of adjustment into the mold cavity, hardening of the shape.
The die - casting mould is mainly composed of cavity, feeding chamber, guide mechanism, ejection part and heating system. Injection moulds are widely used to encapsulate electrical components. The material used in the manufacture of the die is basically the same as the injection mould.

6. High foaming polystyrene molding mould
It is a kind of mould for forming all kinds of foamed plastic packaging materials of various required shapes from the raw material of hair polystyrene (bead material composed of polystyrene and foaming agent).
Its principle is sending polystyrene into the steam forming reaction in the mold, including simple manual operation mold and the hydraulic press for through foam mold two types, are mainly used for production of industrial products packaging products. The mould is made of cast aluminum, stainless steel, bronze, etc.
