The good design of a mould tool is vital in order to achieve several important factors including :
: Good Quality Moulded Components
: Simplicity of Design To Provide Cost Effective and Reliable Tooling
: Low Material Waste -
: Most Cost Effective End Product
The design of a mould tool is vital to achieve the best results for both budget and quality driven customers. Initially the correct numbers of cavities required to produce the required components (quantity based) has to be established. Following this the size of the mould tool can be worked out and the tool design can begin.
Many factors contribute to a good quality moulded part which must be considered at the tool design stage. A balanced runner system, correct ejection system and good positioning of the water cooling channels are some of the important factors Jcam consider while designing mould tools.
Every mould tool design is different as it is based on the part design of each individual part. Many parts are open/shut tooling (the simplest type) while others require moving parts within the tool. A common moving part in tooling is side cores to create holes and other details on the sides of parts. Again the design of the side cores and other moving parts needs careful consideration to provide reliable tooling with longevity.
Jcam aim to design mould tools to be only as complex as required. We will always aim to design tooling to produce parts in the most simplest form, this reduces tooling costs and increases tooling reliability and its overall life span. Customers are provided with a tool design GA to review and accept before the manufacture stage.
