Different for prototype mold and production mold
A prototype mold can produce the same type of parts as a production mold, but it is only warrantied for 10,000 parts due to its tooling materials. This is why the cost of a prototype mold is less than a production mold. It is less expensive, and it is warrantied for 10,000 parts, versus the lifetime warranty we provide on a production mold.
We can quickly build prototype mold by using S50C or P20 soft tool steel.
1. Prototype Mold Highlights
- Fast Mold and Part Quote
- Low Cost, Quick Build and Good Quality
- Trouble-Free Part Modifications
- No Size Limitations
- Any Commercially Available Material and Surface Finish
2. Production Mold Highlights
- Mass molding production
- Precision manufacturing
- Online Project Management
- No Modifications
- Good Surface Finish and good quality
Mold design is including DFM, Mold Flow Analysis, 2D Mold Layout and 3D Mold Drawing. It is part lay out, part line making, gate design, runner design, gating way, ejection method, cooling layout, etc.
Mold making is based on mold making and purchase mold base, steel and component by machined by CNC, EDM, Lathe, Gun Drill and Milling etc., make mold fitting and mold trial in the end. To see the idea into real by mass production.
Mold trial is the last processing to check if the work is making well. You will get the molded part to inspection specification. Make decision if itt is ok or NG after mold trial.
