Plastic Injection Mold Design

Plastic Injection Mold Design

Richfields Plastics provides cost efficient and high quality plastic injection tooling services. Providing Plastic Mold Design services is part of our commitment to fulfill our customer’s requirements through comprehensive plastic injection tooling and molding services. Our designers and engineers work closely together with customer to fully understand detailed customer requirements.

Quality Procedure

Richfields’ strict quality procedure ensures that molds produced by our team are machined and built only according to customer instructions. One key advantage of Richfields is that we are also injection molders. Our engineers make sure that molds are designed, and subsequently built, in accordance with reasonable manufacturability parameters.

We understand our customers best because we know how to design the molds such that it doesn’t create sink marks or other unwanted cosmetic flaws based on customer requirements, and also such that the plastic parts are cost efficient to manufacture.

Richfields also does Moldflow Analysis before any of our mold designs are submitted for customer confirmation. Moldflow Analysis is able to capture possible problems that the manufacturer will encounter if the mold is built as designed. From the analysis, we are able to identify problems before they even come up. From there, we improve on our design and re-design the mold until the best/most reasonable mold design layout is achieved.

Family Mold

Family Mold

Family Plastic Injection Molds is another cost-efficient solution to today's manufacturers who are seeking to improve their production productivity output without having to sacrifice quality. This is made possible by designing the injection tool so that one mold contains different parts of a product.

The family mold is a kind of multi-cavity mold where each cavity produces different parts of the same product. The parts produced by the different cavities may also be unrelated, they can belong to the same product line or to the same project.

Efficient Production

Another reason to use family molds is when the production quantity is not very high in volume. This way, our customers can manufacture more than one part in one production cycle since two or more parts are produced in every shot.

When the different component parts of a product are produced using the same raw plastic material, then all the more reason to use family molds. Not only do you save on expenses in having an additional mold base, you also save on production hours! Time is saved from repetitive mold set up and multiple production cycles.

Richfields' plastic injection molding facilities are equipped to separate the different parts post production. Our production capacity versatility helps customers realize many benefits that not only save on monetary costs but also time and effort.

Cold Runner Molds

Cold Runner Molds

Richfields Corporation has both the skill and experience in producing plastic parts using cold runner molds. Cold Runner Molds has been used in the plastic industry for a long time now. They are typically less complicated to work with.

Cold runner molds usually uses more material during production, though. This is because in every molding cycle, a plastic part and a runner is produced.

The runner is made of excess plastic material present in every shot. The excess material is removed and may be disposed of or reprocessed. Consequently, the processing time is usually longer. There are also side effects to using reprocessed plastic materials.

The use of cold runner molds is still common in the plastic industry despite possible disadvantages mentioned above. That is because:

  • Changing color of plastic material is usually easier with cold runner molds.
  • Cold Runner Molds provides more cost savings in mold maintenance as well mold production.
  • Designs of cold runner molds are less complicated.
  • It is relatively easier to operate with cold runner molds.

Richfields Standards

Insert or over molding is used when the design of your products needs to combine materials with different specifications into one finished product. It is used when a single shot is not enough for the complexity of the product. The finished product of an insert molded or over molded part is a single piece with plastic molded around the insert. This is done by incorporating the insert into a tool and then over-molded to form the final part. The insert used in over molding is usually made of metal or plastic. Richfields can do insert over molding for customers who require it in the application of Specialized plastic or metal Inserts and threaded inserts. This technology is actually very cost effective, since it lessens future assembly costs. With the benefits of insert over molding, it has become popular in the market over the years.

Note that not all designs of plastic parts are readily manufactured using over molding, and insert over molding requires more diligence, expertise and experience from the mold makers. We at Richfields have been trained to help you resolve above-standard, complicated and large over-molded parts. We would be glad to assist you from product design up to manufacturing feasibility of your products, making sure your products are manufactured according to their intended use.
