Tips for New Production Run in Plastic Injection Molding

Changing Production Runs means changing the mold inside the injection molding machine. Here are some tips for making a new production run in plastic injection molding more productive and efficient.

Molds used in Plastic Injection Molding can be intricate. A thorough knowledge of the machine, the specifications of the mold itself, and the molding process is important. Not only is the mold itself difficult to maneuver since its’ steel body is extremely heavy; but ensuring all connections (I.E: hot runner, mold heater or cooling system, core pull connection, etc) are aligned takes expertise and skill.

Regular mold maintenance and proper mold storage can also help in the ease of the transitions between production runs. A new production run can bring different challenges, especially if there is an issue with the mold itself.

Why are Large Volume Production Runs More Cost Effective and Enviromentally friendly?

There is a lot of work that goes into changing the mold for a new production run for plastic injection molding and wasted material that occurs when purging the machine between runs. This is the main reason that injection molders strongly encourage higher quantities to save our customers money and produce less waste for the environment.
