What are the main categories of molds

Mold manufacturers generally customize different molds according to people's needs. There are many types of molds used in production. According to the processing objects and processing technology, they can be divided into: ①Metal processing molds. ②Process non-metal and powder metallurgy molds. Including plastic molds (such as two-color molds, compression molds and extrusion molds, etc.), rubber molds, and powder metallurgy molds. According to the structural characteristics of the mold, it can be divided into a flat punching mold and a cavity mold with space. Because of the relationship between the amount of use and the scope of use, the mold is generally produced in a single piece and small batch.

In addition, mold manufacturers can also be divided into hardware molds according to different mold forming materials: including stamping dies, forging dies, extrusion dies, extrusion dies, die-casting dies, forging dies, etc.; non-metallic dies are divided into: plastic molds and Inorganic non-metal molds. According to the different materials of the mold itself, the mold can be divided into: sand mold, metal mold, vacuum mold, paraffin mold and so on. Among them, with the rapid development of polymer plastics, plastic molds are closely related to people's lives. Plastic molds can generally be divided into: injection molding molds, extrusion molding molds, gas-assisted molding molds, and so on.
