As the name suggests, prototype molds are designed for the rapid production of prototypes classified as suitable materials and thousands of small and medium-sized plastic parts series. This method is specifically designed for economical and rapid production of samples, prototypes and small series. The performance of injection molded parts is the same as that of series molds, but the service life of the latter is shortened. When the number of parts is large or industrialized information is needed, this technology will take priority over silicone molds. This rapid mold consists of two mold bases and a customized cavity plate. Only the cavity plate is machined, usually made of aluminum or mild steel alloy. Limitations of injection molding molds The most expensive prototype technology: Although manufacturing a prototype mold is cheaper than a series of molds, the investment cost incurred will be much higher than other prototype technologies. The cost of equipment (injection molding machine
, machining equipment) and skilled labor is higher, and the cost of injection molding materials is also higher. Longer process: Although it is faster than standard injection molding, it is still longer than some of our other prototyping techniques because you need to make a mold and then inject the part. Faster prototyping technologies are 3D printing, SLA and vacuum casting. Production constraints: Considering the required investment, this method is more advantageous for producing larger quantities of products. It is not recommended to have less than 100 parts. On the other hand, it is not suitable for mass production; it is a bridge between the prototype and mass production stages. Plastic injection: Plastic injection, even in the context of prototypes and small batch production, will require very specific qualifications. From the beginning of the project, it is important to choose a trustworthy partner. Sometimes it is necessary to use the initial stage of silicon molds.
