What are the criteria of metal insert mold design?

The design criterion of metal insert mold is similar to that of conventional plastic mold. For example: try to keep the same wall thickness and ensure the tolerance accuracy of the mold.

However, the unique factors need to be considered when considering the forming of inserts. Since the injection inserts are placed in the mold, it is important to carefully consider the location of the inserts. It is also important to keep them in place during the forming process. Here, we list the unique factors that need to be considered in the design of insert forming.

Advanced injection molding machine:

In the process of insert molding, advanced vertical injection molding machine is needed for product development. Vertical injection molding machines have particularly strict tolerances, as this ensures that the product accuracy is accurate during the injection molding process. Even a small millimeter deviation can cause product failure. With the combination of vertical injection molding machine, manipulator and the whole set of inserts, most of the insert molding projects can realize automatic production.

Insert selection:

Different types of plug-ins can be used in the design of molded components. The metal inserts in the insert forming are usually made of brass, stainless steel or plain steel. These plug-ins have threaded surfaces, so they can bond more closely with the product. Inserts are used in various types of processes, such as injection molding, compression molding, extrusion blow molding, structural foam, rotary molding, etc.

Material selection:

Various polymers are usually used in the insert molding process to meet the application needs of customers. Each material contains unique properties and should be selected according to the operating conditions and performance requirements of the finished product.
