About injection mold housing
What is injection mold housing?
Injection molding is a manufacturing process for producing parts from a variety of materials. Injection molding housings are often used to create enclosures for electrical and electronic equipment. Injection molding housings are also used for many other applications.
What types of injection mold housings are available?
Injection mold housings are available in a variety of different styles and sizes. The most common type of injection mold housing is the two-plate style, which features two halves that open along the vertical y-axis. This style is ideal for small to medium-sized parts. For larger parts, a three-plate style housing is available, which features three halves that open along the x-axis. Additionally, there are several different styles of two-plate housings available, including clamshell, split-body, and symmetrical styles.
How do you choose the right injection mold housing?
When it comes to injection molding, the housing of the mold is one of the most important components. If it is not selected correctly, the entire molding process can be compromised. There are a few factors to consider when choosing the right housing.
The first consideration is the type of plastic being used. The housing needs to be able to withstand the heat and pressure of the injection molding process. Some plastics are more sensitive to heat than others, so the housing needs to be able to handle the heat without melting.
The second consideration is the size of the part being molded. The housing needs to be large enough to accommodate the part, but not so large that it takes up too much space in the machine.
