The future development direction of injection molds:
1: High precision
Whether the dimensional accuracy can be achieved is the most important factor in manufacturing high-precision, high-quality, high-tech products. Japan and Germany were the best in the past. With decades of continuous learning and innovation, a large number of companies specializing in high-precision mold manufacturing have emerged in our Chinese mold industry.
To make high-precision molds, there are two main elements, one is equipment and the other is talent. As the number of high-end devices in China increases dramatically, this is no longer a problem. There are also talented people. Many of them come from foreign capital or joint ventures to start businesses, or are bosses or supervisors. They rely on the skills they have learned to compete with their old employers.
Two: high efficiency
That is, high automation. With the popularization of various automated equipment (mainly robots) that cooperate with mold production, and the improvement of the intelligence of standard parts inside the mold (mainly hot runners), the efficiency of mold production is getting higher and higher, and it will move towards Develop towards a higher and better realm. In this process, the requirements for mold designers will become higher and higher. At that time, mold designers must not only understand the automation equipment, but also participate in the design.
In the future, there will be only three types of people in factories: managers, technicians, and robots.https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0043164823003836
Three: New mold
With the continuous advancement of technological innovation, many molds that originally required complex and tortuous methods can become very simple. There are also many structures that were originally thought to be impossible have become possible. These are new opportunities and challenges for the mold industry. Specifically, they are opportunities and challenges for mold designers. Mold factories that have mastered these new mold design and manufacturing technologies will have more initiatives. Mastering high-tech molds requires profound design and manufacturing background. The huge profits of these new molds will be a good return for companies that have invested a lot of money in this. These high-tech technologies can also become a good resource for the company to build its reputation and strive for better customers. chips!
Here are a few types of molds that have appeared in recent years: molds with four-sided rotation and ejection, molds with sliding fits after secondary injection molding of plastic products, injection molding and stamping integrated molds, high-speed continuous punching molds, etc.https://solidcomould.com/product/plastic-electrical-junction-box-injection-mould-sc01/
Four: Product R&D and mold integration
This trend is also inevitable. This change is a change that has a greater impact on the manufacturing model than the assembly line replacing the all-round mold master. To put it simply, mold design and product research and development are integrated into a new position, a brand-new position that can be responsible for a series of tasks of the entire product from appearance to mechanism, to mold, to mold processing, mold production, and product assembly. Become the absolute core of manufacturing.
