1. What are the basic structural components of injection molds
The basic structure of injection molds mainly consists of mold base plate, mold core, mold cavity, guide pillar, guide sleeve, ejector pin, ejector rod, top plate, positioning ring, cooling water channel, and other parts. Among them, the mold base plate is the basic part of the mold, the mold core and mold cavity are the core parts used for forming plastic products, the guide pillar and guide sleeve are used to locate the position of the mold core and mold cavity, the ejector pin and top rod are used to eject the formed part, the top plate is used to fix the ejector pin and top rod, the positioning ring is used to locate the position of the mold core and mold cavity, and the cooling water channel is used to cool the mold core and mold cavity.
2. What are the manufacturing processes of injection molds
The manufacturing process of injection molds includes steps such as design, processing, assembly, and debugging.
(1) Injection mold design. Mold design needs to be carried out based on the shape and size requirements of plastic products, and parameters such as mold structure and size need to be determined. Then, process the mold according to the design drawings, including CNC machining, electric discharge machining, wire cutting, and other processes.
(2) Injection mold processing and assembly. Assemble the processed mold components, including the mold core, mold cavity, guide pillar, guide sleeve, ejector pin, ejector rod, top plate, positioning ring, and other parts.
(3) Injection mold debugging. Conduct mold debugging, including adjusting the position of the mold core and cavity, adjusting the position of the ejector pin and plunger, and adjusting the flow rate of the cooling water channel.
3. What are the application scope of injection molds
Injection molds are widely used in the production of plastic products, including home appliances, automobiles, electronics, medical devices, daily necessities, and other fields. The application range of injection molds is becoming increasingly widespread, and their manufacturing technology and processes are also constantly developing and innovating.
In summary, injection molding is a type of mold used for manufacturing plastic products, which requires multiple steps in the manufacturing process, including design, processing, assembly, and debugging. Injection molds have a wide range of applications, and their manufacturing technology and processes are constantly developing and innovating.
