How to Choose a Good Plastic Injection Mould Maker

Posted by admin on July 15th, 2015

At the heart of any injection molding operation is the plastic injection mould. A good mold maker will make a mould that produces quality parts.

I think one of your priorities should be to find a mold maker who actually wants to make a difference to your productivity.

There are several benefits to this:
  • Faster cycle times
  • Lower costs
  • Fewer rejects
  • Ability to meet deadline
  • Higher morale among employees
  • Better working relationships

When sourcing a plastic injection mould maker, there are a number of things to consider.

1.  The Right Approach

A plastic mold maker should support his injection molding customer from the beginning of a new part concept right through to mass production of the parts especially when trying to reduce cycle times by using moulds. The mold maker should know what questions to ask and be on the lookout for part design issues that could make molding and mold construction difficult.

2. Delivery

Delivery lead time is critical to getting parts to market on time. When the mold is delivered on time the molder can start making money and satisfy customer’s production requirements. There is no pressure associated with late deliveries because there are no customers demanding parts that you don’t have. A good plastic injection mould maker will be able to meet all deadlines regardless of his work load if he has proper leadership and management.

3. Mold Reliability

If a mold maker can build a mold with the correct materials, heat treatments, corrosion protection and machining tolerances, then it will work flawlessly for its intended life provided it is properly maintained. The mould should produce quality parts at the correct cycle time without interruptions due to ejection difficulties. There should be no need for a molder to spend time, energy or money trouble shooting and repairing a mold. Employees should be free to work on the more important money making tasks.

That’s why constant communication between molder and mold maker is critical to success.
