About injection mold cost

Injection molding is a process that is used to create a wide range of products. However, the cost of using an injection mold can be prohibitive for some businesses.

1. Understand the factors that influence injection mold costs.
Injection mold costs are impacted by a variety of factors, including the type of plastic used, the size and complexity of the mold, the number of cavities, and the production volume. In general, the cost of an injection-molded part increases with the complexity of the part and the number of cavities in the mold.

The size of the mold also affects the cost. Larger molds are more expensive to produce and require more time to tool.

The production volume also affects the cost of the part. Higher production volumes result in lower per-part costs. Conversely, lower production volumes result in higher per-part costs.
