What Is a Plastic Injection Mould


A Machine

An injection mould is a machine that enables dreams to come true.

It is a perfect application of Mechanical Engineering, based on Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer and Theory of Machines sub disciplines.

It is a door that lets us pass from the virtual world to the real world.

Mouldability

In terms of mouldability, an injection mould is a multi-answer available question.

For a given plastic part 3D CAD model, you may get dozens of offers from different mould makers, all different from each other. While, from all these offered moulds it will be possible to demould the given 3D CAD model.

But, is the mouldability your only aim?

Industrialization

Industrialization means creating profit. Who builds the mould, who uses it for part production and who buys these parts to produce a car must earn money!

While using the mould, neither the operator and the mould, nor the moulded parts and any other production equipment and plant must not face a safety risk.

All above mentioned operation must be eco-friendly, lawful and sustainable within defined project lifetime.

“Mould Investment Management” in Automotive Industry


Understanding the Purpose

Comprehending the purpose of a plastic part in the automotive project is the key for a successful mould project startup.

The purpose is composed by; The 3D CAD data, plastic raw material, esthetical and functional expectation from the part, assembly design of the part on the car.

Being aware of each single ring of the value chain both for automotive and mould project is a must to reach the overall benefit maximization, in another word for industrialization.

Experience and strong background in both industries are details to make a difference in the field.

Managing the Supplier Parks

Experience and strong background in both industries are details to make a difference in the field.

Plastic injection mould is a tool. A tool that must enable the optimum injection process window to its user.

So, the point is the ability to design the injection process. That is why not all suppliers are right ones for each plastic part and not all mould makers are right ones for each mould.

Design to Cost (D2C) & Design to Manufacture (D2M) are side benefits of Mould Investment Management that create real Cost Reduction & Cost Avoidance.

Delicate balance on the cutting edge

Mould Investment Management is an art of balancing three basic inputs; Time – Quality – Money while assuring industrialization of the project.

Behavioral and social relation skills are indispensable to create a synergy and guide the team to the unique aim with enthusiasm.

To be able to combine people from different cultures and competencies, the leader must be multicultural and competent in both automotive and mould industries.

Interactions between the automotive project and the mould projects must be managed to build and maintain the delicate balance of cost & time to reach the aimed quality of the purpose.
