Mold Making Processes

Mold making is a complex process that requires a high level of skill and experience. Although each case is different, a typical order for a set of molds may go something like this:

1. DFM

As soon as the customer confirms the order of molds, we will start to do an initial analysis of the parts to get an idea of the part line, gate positions, etc.

2. Mold design and mold flow analysis

The second step involves the use of predictive modeling software which allows us to see how the molten material will behave when it enters the mold, allowing for further improvements to the design.

3. CNC machining and EDM

We make the first molds using high-quality machining equipment, with the plastic, steel, aluminum, etc. chosen by the customer.

4. T1 sample

With the newly made molds, we make a T1 sample to have a clear vision of how the customer’s final molded parts will turn out.

5. Improvement if necessary

Based on our analysis of the T1 sample, we review the mold design and make any adjustments needed.

6. Commence production and shipping

We manufacture the molds in accordance with the final specifications before shipping them to the customer.
