Types of Molds for Plastic Injection Manufacturing

A wide range of molds can be used in our plastics injection molding processes, including the types below:

1. Low/high cavitation
Ideal for high-volume production, these molds contain multiple identical cavities, producing several pieces in one cycle. High cavitation molds are used for simpler parts, while low cavitation molds are typically used for complex, larger items.
2. Unscrewing molds
A specialty mold designed with an unscrewing mechanism, it is used for making parts with external and internal threads, such as bottle caps and threaded fittings.
3. Core puller molds
These molds are designed with a mechanism that allows for more complex shapes. The core puller allows parts of the mold to be pulled away to create openings or undercuts.
4. Family mold
Family molds produce multiple different parts in the same molding cycle. They're ideal for creating components of an assembly simultaneously, reducing production time and cost.
5. Insert molding
This advanced technique involves injecting plastic around an insert piece, usually made of metal, resulting in a single assembled piece. It is often used in manufacturing parts that need reinforced structure.
6. Overmolding
Overmolding, one of the areas that Ichiplas specialises in, involves injecting a layer of plastic over an existing part that is usually made of different materials. This technique enhances the part's features, adding comfort, aesthetics, and function.
7. Cold runner molds
These molds have a two-part molding system where the plastic is injected into the mold through the sprue and then cooled. It's a cost-effective method that is ideal for short production runs.
8. Hot runner molds
Hot runner molds are designed with a heated system that keeps the plastic in a molten state. This design reduces waste, improves efficiency, and is ideal for high-volume, high-quality production runs.
