Plastic Injection Moulds – Mould design is a specialised discipline that requires exceptional product analysis and detailed knowledge of materials and manufacturing methods.
Tool design is also a vitally important part of the injection moulding process which affects a product’s strength, quality and durability.
Purchasing the best possible plastic injection moulds tool can make all the difference to product quality, manufacturing speed, unit costs and productivity.
Toolcast provide exceptional design and project management support, guiding you through the tooling design and manufacturing process from start to finish.
We also specialize in two-shot molding
Plastic Injection Moulds – This process involves two separate injection molded parts. The first part is molded and then placed in a second mold where a second material is then molded on to the first.
Depending on customer requirements, the materials may either be mechanically or chemically bonded through material affinity.Today’s technology allows processors to produce injection molded parts from two different thermoplastic materials which in turn allows for more complex parts to be manufactured efficiently and at a reasonable cost in mass quantities.
The materials you choose in two-shot molding can differ in hardness and polymer-type, depending on the part’s function.
What are the benefits of the two-shot process
- Lower cost
- Simplified production process
- Improved product integrity
- Unique product appearance 2 colour options
- Ideal for:
- Soft touch handles and grips
- Multi-color buttons and knobs
- Caps and closures
