We are prototype mold maker in China, offer plastic injection mold making service. Prototype mold is low molding production, it is usually use cheap steel, such as C45, the same as mold base. It usually make as solid mold too.
Difference between prototype mold & production mold
The difference is mold life, or molding production quantity. Prototype mold is low shot, usually less than 10,000 shots. Or it should be production mold.

Prototype Mold & Molded part
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 it is ok or NG in the end.
Mould Precision Co., Ltd. is a high quality plastic injection mold manufacturer in China, with rich experience in prototype mold making and manufacturing, with competitive price and on time deliver.
