  • Q What is the expected tolerance range for injection molded parts?

    A The expected tolerance range for injection molded parts can vary depending on factors like material, design, and machine capabilities. Generally, tolerances of ±0.05 mm to ±0.20 mm are common in the industry. Please send us your drawings, and we will conduct an evaluation to assess the tolerance of all dimensions.
    About tolerance.

  • Q What long it takes to build a plastic injection mold?

    A The time required to build a plastic injection mold can vary widely based on the complexity of the mold, its size, and design intricacy. In general, mold production can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 10 weeks.

  • Q How much does an injection mold cost?

    A The cost of an injection mold can vary significantly depending on the complexity of the mold, the size of the part, the type of material, and the number of cavities in the mold. In general, a set of mold costs $2k to $100K.

  • Q Do you export molds to the USA or Europe?

    A Yes, we make DME standard molds for USA customers and HASCO standard molds for Europe customers.

  • Q What's conformal cooling?

    A  Conformal cooling is an advanced method used in manufacturing, particularly in injection molding. It involves the design and 3D printing of cooling channels that conform precisely to the shape of a mold. This enables more efficient and uniform heat dissipation, resulting in reduced cycle times and improved product quality.
  • Q What kind of parts need conformal cooling channels?

    Conformal cooling is especially suitable for parts with intricate and complex geometries, making it an ideal solution for components in various industries. It excels in applications where uniform cooling and reduced cycle times are critical. This innovative cooling method not only enhances manufacturing efficiency but also brings about substantial benefits in terms of part quality and aesthetics.
    For example, in the automotive industry, where precision and efficiency are paramount, conformal cooling can optimize the production of complex engine components and custom vehicle parts. In consumer electronics, it helps ensure the integrity of intricate casings and components, particularly in high-gloss, polished surfaces, where even cooling is essential for achieving flawless cosmetics. The ability of conformal cooling to provide even shrinking significantly improves the surface quality of parts, ensuring a pristine, polished finish.
    In the medical field, where precision and quality control are vital, conformal cooling aids in producing intricate medical devices, some of which may have high-polish surfaces, ensuring the final products meet the most stringent cosmetic standards.
    In essence, conformal cooling is a versatile and transformative technology that offers advantages across industries, particularly in situations where traditional cooling methods may fall short. Its capacity to enhance the cosmetic quality of parts, especially those with high-gloss surfaces, is a compelling reason to adopt this cutting-edge cooling solution.

  • Q How long does it take to ship molds or parts to the USA?

    A For air shipment, it typically takes 2-5 days for standard service or 7-10 days for a more economical option.
    If you opt for sea freight, the shipping time generally falls in the range of 25-35 days, with exact times dependent on the specific state within the USA where the delivery is destined.

  • Q How long does it take to ship molds or parts to Western Europe?

    A For air shipping, it usually takes 2-5 days for standard service or 7-10 days for a more economical option.
    For sea Freight, the timing is 30-40 days.
    It takes 20-25 days to take the train.

  • Q What types of material do you mold for molding products?

    A For high-performance parts, our materials of choice include PPSU, PEI, PEEK, and PPS.
    For general-purpose parts, we commonly work with materials like POM, PC, ABS, PP, PMMA, and PA.
    The major properties of plastic materials are listed above.

  • Q How many mold cavities do you build?

    A The number of mold cavities we construct is influenced by the part's complexity and the required production volume. Typically, we produce molds with 1 to 8 cavities. However, for exceptionally high-volume production of small parts, we can create molds with up to 64 cavities.

  • Q What’s a family mold?

    A A family mold, also known as a multi-cavity mold, is a type of injection mold that is designed to produce multiple different parts or variations of a part in a single molding cycle. It allows for the simultaneous production of several different components using the same mold, increasing production efficiency and reducing costs compared to making each part separately. Family molds are commonly used in applications where multiple related parts are needed for an assembly or where different variations of a product are required.

  • Q Do you make family molds?

    A Yes. If your annual usage is relatively low, we can produce multiple parts simultaneously on a single mold, effectively reducing tooling costs. While this approach may result in slightly higher part prices, it offers cost-effective solutions for certain projects.
