Injection Mould price

Mould price is usually the first consideration in any new project and for good reason. The lower the price the quicker the payback period which means you can start making a profit sooner.

However, be careful, as there are hidden costs associated with buying a cheap injection mold – especially from Low Cost Countries (LCC).

The price of molds from LCC’s can be as much as 70% lower than molds made in western countries.

Initially this might seem very attractive but the real cost should be calculated over a period of time in which case you will likely find that there were no savings at all.

In fact it probably cost you money due to ongoing quality issues and slow cycle time.

A common story is where injection molders will buy cheap new moulds from a LCC only to find one or more of the following issues:

  • Slow cycle time
  • Poor part quality
  • Constant production stoppages due to ejection difficulties

These issues require constant attention so any cost savings on the initial purchase price are quickly eliminated.

So in the end you get what you pay for.

There are many good plastic injection mould makers in LCC’s, just make sure you spend time to find the right one for you.

Balance price with quality. Do your research and pay a bit more to get a mould that will produce quality plastic parts consistently.
