SPECIALIST AREAS

Types of Injection Moulds We Can Handle

Our company excels in handling various types of injection moulds to cater to diverse production needs:

  • Single-cavity Moulds: 
    Designed for producing one part per cycle, suitable for low-volume production or prototyping.
  • Multi-cavity Moulds:
    Configured with multiple cavities to produce multiple parts simultaneously, ideal for high-volume production.
  • Family Moulds:
    Constructed to produce multiple related parts in a single moulding cycle, optimising production efficiency.
  • Hot Runner Moulds: 
    Equipped with a heated manifold system to maintain molten material flow, reducing cycle times and material waste.
  • Cold Runner Moulds: 
    Utilise a non-heated runner system, suitable for materials sensitive to heat or requiring colour changes.
  • Insert Moulds: 
    Designed to encapsulate inserts or metal components within the moulded part during the moulding process.
  • 3-Plate Moulds: 
    Incorporate 3-plate mould designs as a solution for complex part geometries and multipart assemblies.
  • High Complex Moulds: 
    Feature advanced mechanisms such as side cores with finger cams, doglegs, cylinders, and lifter mechanisms for complex part designs.
  • Micro-Moulds: 
    Specialised for moulding parts with extremely small dimensions and tight tolerances, requiring high precision machining and moulding techniques for accurate and repeatable results.

Our expertise and capabilities encompass a wide range of injection mould types, enabling us to meet varied manufacturing requirements efficiently and effectively.

DEVELOPMENT FACILITIES

Our company operates advanced development facilities dedicated to injection mould manufacturing and refinement. These cutting-edge facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art technologies and staffed by experienced professionals, allowing us to deliver high-quality moulds that precisely meet our clients' specifications. Here is an overview of our development capabilities:

CAD/CAM Design: Our team utilises advanced Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software to conceptualise and create intricate mould designs. This technology enables us to optimise mould geometry for efficiency, precision, and durability.

Simulation and Analysis: Before fabrication, our engineers conduct comprehensive simulation and analysis using finite element analysis (FEA) and mould flow analysis software. This process helps identify potential issues such as part defects, warpage, and flow imbalances, allowing for preemptive adjustments to optimise mould performance.

Tooling and Machining: Our development facilities are equipped with a range of precision machining equipment, including CNC milling machines, lathes, and grinding machines. This enables us to fabricate moulds with tight tolerances and intricate features, ensuring consistency and quality in the final moulded parts.

Testing and Validation: We have dedicated testing areas where we rigorously evaluate the performance of newly fabricated moulds. This includes dimensional inspection, material compatibility testing, and functional testing under simulated production conditions. Any necessary adjustments are made to ensure that the moulds meet our clients' requirements and industry standards.

By investing in advanced development facilities and employing a multidisciplinary approach, we accelerate the mould development process while maintaining the highest standards of quality and precision. Our commitment to innovation and continuous improvement ensures that we remain at the forefront of injection mould manufacturing, providing our clients with reliable solutions for their production needs.

ADDITIONAL SERVICES PROVIDED

In addition to our core injection moulding services, we take pride in offering a value engineering service aimed at optimising the cost-effectiveness of mould manufacturing for our clients. Our project and design engineers will conduct a comprehensive analysis of the product design and mould requirements to identify opportunities for cost savings without compromising quality or functionality.

A key aspect of this service involves scrutinising the product design for any features or profiles that may contribute to excessive manufacturing costs. Our team understands that certain design elements, while aesthetically pleasing or functionally desirable, can significantly inflate mould production expenses. These "unwanted profiles" may include intricate details, undercuts, or unnecessary material thicknesses that add complexity to the mould-making process.
Through collaborative discussions with our clients, our engineers will carefully evaluate the necessity of these design elements and assess the feasibility of simplifying or removing them. By leveraging our expertise and industry insights, we can suggest alternative approaches or design modifications that achieve the desired functionality while streamlining the mould manufacturing process and reducing costs.

This value engineering approach underscores our commitment to delivering practical and cost-effective solutions tailored to our clients' needs. By fostering open communication and collaboration between our team and our clients, we aim to maximise the value proposition of our injection moulding services while ensuring optimal outcomes for every project. With our value engineering service, clients can expect not only superior quality and performance but also enhanced cost efficiency and competitiveness in the marketplace.
