Selecting A Resin For Your Newly Designed Injection Molded Product

After you have established an idea for your newly designed injection molded product, the next step, which is one of the most important, is selecting a resin.  You need to address what the product requirements are and ask yourself some of the following questions: What overall strength does the part need to be?  Is the part going to be bent or have an impact on it?  What about tensile strength?  Is the part going to be involved in some type of pulling action?  Is weight a concern?  What about the electrical properties?  Does the part need to be flame retardant?  Does it need to be conductive?   Is it operating temperature critical?  How about chemical resistance?  Specifically, does the part need to be resistant to certain chemicals such as alcohol, gasoline, oil, etc.?    These are just a few of the many considerations that need to be addressed when selecting the proper resin.  It is always best to consult with a professional such as Toth Mold/Die Inc. who is knowledgeable in this area to assist you in choosing the proper resin for your newly designed injection molded product.

Tooling Cost for Your Newly Designed Injection Molded Part

A prototype mold is low cost tooling mainly used in order to obtain working parts. Modifications can easily be made quickly to this type of tooling.  Life expectancy of this type of mold is approximately up to 1,000 parts.

Low volume tooling is a medium cost mold that consists of one or two cavities which usually includes a mold base of pre-hardened steel.  The life expectancy of this type of mold is approximately up to 500,000 parts.

A high volume mold is the most expensive tooling which can include anywhere from 2 – 32 cavities, the mold base, hardened steel, and high wear material for all components.  The mold life is usually guaranteed for 1,000,000 cycles up to 5,000,000 cycles with low maintenance needed for extended life.

Consult with a professional like Toth Mold/Die Inc. to determine the proper tooling and cost for your newly designed injection molded part.
