143. Your Guide to Plastic Mold

Plastics is synthetically produced non-metallic compounds. It can be molded into various forms and hardened for commercial use. Plastic molds can be seen everywhere, such as the keyboard and the mouse that you use are made by plastic molding technology.

The basic idea in plastic molding is inserting molten liquid plastic into a ready shaped mold. It will be then allowed to cool, and then the mold will be removed to reveal the plastic bottle.

If you are planning to go into plastic molding business, you should first know the different processes. Choose from a plastic molding process that fits your budget.

1. Injection Molding
2. Blow Molding
3. Compression Molding
4. Gas Assist Molding
5. Rotational Molding

In this rapid prototyping process, sheets of pre-extruded rigid plastics are horizontally heated and sucked down into hollow one-piece tools. When the hot plastic solidifies, its shape conforms to that of the mold.

Plastic molding is a very technical process. It needs experts in this type of production tooling business for it to be competitive in the market. Therefore, a very scientific study should be first made before going into this plastic molding process.
