Mold design and tooling are the most critical – and most expensive – part of the injection molding process. It’s where all of the initial discussions, concept design, materials selection, computer models and flow analysis come together.

Designing the mold and its components is a challenging job. In addition to deep scientific and technical knowledge, tooling requires an intrinsic understanding of how the part or product will respond to its operational environment.

Our whitepaper, Mold Design and Tooling for Injection Molding, explores how and why:

  • Tool design, tool material and cavitation impact tolerance
  • Scientific molding principles are important for precise mold design
  • Proper cooling channel placement in mold walls is essential for producing uniform, defect-free parts
  • Molds can be designed to apply a texture or pattern to the mold surface, eliminating secondary operations
  • The best way to maximize your tooling budget is to consider lifecycle costs, not upfront costs
