3Q MACHINING is a top-quality CNC machining manufacturer in DONGGUAN, GUANGDONG, CHINA. We are working our best work for your custom plastic & metal machining parts from design drawing or sample to final shipment with fast delivery and low MOQ. We are using advanced technology and equipment to offer high precision for producing metal and plastic machining parts. In this article, We introduce eight categories of injection molds.

  • Single parting surface injection mold

When the mold is opened, the movable mold and the fixed mold are separated to take out the plastic part, which is called a single parting surface mold, also called a double-plate mold. It is the simplest and most basic form of injection mold. It can be designed as a single-cavity injection mold or a multi-cavity injection mold according to needs. It is the most widely used injection mold.

  • Double parting surface injection mold

The double parting surface injection mold has two parting surfaces. Compared with the single parting surface injection mold, the double parting surface injection mold adds an intermediate plate (also called movable gate plate, It is equipped with gates, runners and other parts and components required by the fixed mold), so it is also called a three-plate (moving plate, intermediate plate, fixed plate) injection mold, which is often used for single-type point gate feeding For injection molds with multiple cavities or multiple cavities, when the mold is opened, the intermediate plate is separated from the fixed template at a fixed distance on the guide post of the fixed mold, so that the casting system condensate can be taken out between the two templates. The double parting surface injection mold has complex structure, high manufacturing cost, and difficult parts processing. Generally, it is not used for the molding of large or super large plastic products.

  • Injection mould with lateral parting and core pulling mechanism

When the plastic part has side holes or undercuts, it is necessary to use a laterally movable core or slider for molding. After injection molding, the movable mold first moves down for a certain distance, and then the inclined section of the bending pin fixed on the fixed template forces the slider to move outward, and at the same time, the push rod of the demolding mechanism pushes the pusher plate to make the plastic part self-molding Take off the core.

  • Injection mold with movable molded parts

Due to the special structure of plastic parts, the injection mold is required to be equipped with movable forming parts, such as movable punches, movable concave molds, movable inserts, movable thread cores or rings, etc., which can be combined with the plastic parts during demolding. Move out of the mold together, and then separate from the plastic part.

  • Automatic thread unloading injection mold

For plastic parts with threads, when automatic demolding is required, a rotatable thread core or ring can be set on the mold, and the mold opening action or the rotation mechanism of the injection molding machine can be used, or a special transmission device can be set to drive the thread. The core or the threaded ring rotates, so that the plastic part is released.

  • Runnerless injection mold

Runnerless injection mould refers to the method of adiabatic heating of the runner to keep the plastic between the nozzle and the cavity of the injection moulding machine in a molten state, so that there is no condensate in the pouring system when the mould is opened and the plastic part is taken out. The former is called adiabatic runner injection mold, and the latter is called hot runner injection mold.

  • Right Angle Injection Mold

Right-angle injection molds are only suitable for angle injection molding machines. The difference from other injection molds is that the feeding direction of this type of mold is perpendicular to the opening and closing direction of the mold during molding. His main channel is opened on both sides of the parting surface of the moving and fixed molds, and its cross-sectional area is usually constant. This is different from the molds used in other injection molding machines. The end of the main channel is to prevent injection molding machines. For the wear and deformation of the nozzle and the inlet end of the main runner, replaceable runner inserts can be set.

  • Injection mould with demoulding mechanism on fixed mould

In most injection molds, the demolding device is installed on the side of the movable mold, which facilitates the work of the ejector device in the opening and closing system of the injection molding machine. In actual production, because some plastic parts are limited by the shape, it is better to leave the plastic part on the side of the fixed mold for molding. This makes the plastic part out of the mold, and it is necessary to set a demoulding mechanism on the side of the fixed mold
