Original basket samples sent by our SWY customer
After deciding to make molds, our customer sent us the original basket samples by DHL. According to our customer's requirement, the size of this rectangular fruit basket mold should be like the blue basket, but the texture needs to be changed like the grey basket (the right one). Another point is the handle part, which need to match the customer's sample firmly. During the design process of mold, we sent the customer the revised product and mold design for confirmation, after all were confirmed, we began machining basket mold.
The design process of plastic rectangular fruit basket injection mold
1. Product design
Comprising creative and technical experts to develop product designs enables us to create designs like collapsible plastic crates. With MoldFlow software, we analyze designs, correct flaws, and ensure it meets our manufacturability threshold. We also optimize all product designs for manufacturing and mold making.
2. Mold design
Warehousing and storage parts make designing their injection molds quite complex. With our well-experienced design engineers and top-grade machinery, we can handle complex mold design. This rich combination of skill and resources enables us to develop molds that use resins to produce units with consistent wall thickness.
The technical points of plastic rectangular fruit basket injection mold
Plastic fruit basket mold manufacture needs a certain technical requirement. In addition to processing, the most important thing is mold design. In order to be able to process products with standard accuracy and good quality, certain regulations and requirements must be followed. When processing the mold of the plastic rectangular fruit basket injection mold, the technical requirements of the processing can't be ignored.
Mold design requirements include mold structure type, mold size, number of cavities, runner form, product demolding method, etc.
1. Mold structure type
Generally, plastic rectangular fruit basket injection molds are four-slider structures. The slider will be heated and easily damaged during the continuous sliding process. Therefore, the steel requirements of the slider are relatively high, and the inside of the slider must be connected to the waterline, the water line must be reasonable, so as to improve the production cycle of the mold, the contact place between the slider and the core must be added with wear blocks.
2. The number of cavities of the mold
General companies, like this type of 4-sided slider mold, can only do 1-1, and those who can make 1-2 are considered relatively powerful companies, and SWY can make 1-4. to ensure the production efficiency of the product, improve the product, and save the individual processing cost of the product.
3. Runner form
SWY uses a multi-point gate hot runner. After the mold is opened, there will be no product waste, which directly saves the cooling time of the runner and effectively improves production efficiency.
The advantages of plastic rectangular fruit basket injection mold made by SWY
1. High precision
In CNC machining, high-powered tools are computer-controlled. We use this method to produce mold prototypes that cannot be produced with 3D printers. They’re easy to test and adjust designs before going into production. With high speed and high tolerance, we could deliver samples within project schedules.
Before we have any of our products mass-produced, we make sure they go through a high-precision designing process. Our designers will double-check all of your specifications to ensure that your plastic storage molds are optimally designed.
2. Short lead time
When it comes to fulfilling orders, we take lead times very seriously. By working with SWY MOULD, you will be provided with your orders with all due haste. Just give us your exact specifications, and we will fulfill your plastic basket mold needs in no time.
