Cost of Plastic Injection Molding in China

The cost of plastic injection molding in China starts at around 1000 USD/EUR for small molds. These are used for making small parts with dimensions of 50*20*10 Mm.. Due to the start-up costs involved in plastic injection molding, it is only feasible for small and medium-sized enterprises to produce series of products starting from around 3,000. Before estimating the cost of plastic injection molding, it is important that the product's design is finished and according to the general design rules. Also, the expected production volume is known.

Also, the expected production volume is known.



The Shape of the mold impact by

● The shape of the mold is related to the complexity of the product's design. For instance, if the design of the product is complex, the more mold parts are needed to shape it.

● The expected production volume of the product or the type of mold used should also be taken into account to determine the sustainability of the product.



The 2 main aspects that determine the cost price of a mold are listed below.

● Product size: the larger the product, the larger the mold.

● In most cases, the mold has two parts. However, for complex products, the complexity of the mold construction is higher.



The requirements that are set on the product surface.

● The number of products that you would like to make with ONE mold

● In most cases, a single mold is used for making products with an annual production requirement of up to 75,000 units. However, with larger orders, the number of cavities can increase significantly.

● Having a well-designed and optimized mold is very important for making large batches of products.

● High pressure (up to 2,500 bar), This requires a very stable mold construction. In practice, this means that most molds are made of steel.



Every detail of the product's design is visible inside the cavity of the mold. This means that minor damage or scratches can be easily spotted on the product. The size of the opening in the mold cavity is also visible on the product. This ensures that the mold parts are processed properly.
