Why Stebro Mold for low volume mold making

When it comes to your tooling, it is the details that matter.

What is Low Volume Production mold?

It also called low quantity mold production, limited production molds or short production run molds. It is a type of injection molding tool used to produce small quantities of injection molded parts. 

The production run can range from a few hundred to a few thousand parts. They are ideal for prototyping, market testing, and small-scale manufacturing scenarios.

Low Volume Injection Mold Design Guidelines

Designing low volume injection molds requires careful consideration of several factors to ensure successful production runs and high-quality parts. Here are some detailed guidelines for low volume injection mold design:

  1.  Material selection: As the volume is low, normally we use Aluminium or pre-hardened steel.
  2. Simplify part geometry: To reduce tooling costs and complexity, do your best to remove the undercut.
  3. Draft angles: Incorporate draft angles in your part design to facilitate easier ejection from the mold and minimize part damage. 
  4. Uniform wall thickness: Maintain uniform wall thickness throughout the part design.
  5. Ribs and gussets: To maintain strength and rigidity without increasing wall thickness, incorporate ribs and gussets in the part design. 
  6. Radii and fillets: Add radii and fillets to sharp corners and edges to improve part strength, reduce stress concentration, and facilitate smoother material flow during the injection molding process.
  7. Gate and runner design: Optimize gate size, location, and type to ensure proper filling of the mold cavity.
  8. Venting: Proper venting is crucial to prevent gas entrapment, burn marks, and short shots. Incorporate vents at the end of the flow path and any areas where gas may be trapped.
  9. Ejection system: Design an effective ejection system to minimize part damage and ensure smooth, efficient part removal from the mold. 
  10. Mold cooling: Uniform and efficient cooling system can reduce cycle times, minimize part defects, and ensure consistent part quality.
Follow these low volume tooling design guidelines to create efficient and cost-effective low run plastic molds. This will help produce high-quality parts and minimize potential defects. Work with a full services injection molder to get the best possible results for your short run plastic injection molding project.
