Here are six tips to consider when buying an injection mold:

 

Part design is the process of finding attractive solutions that take advantage of the limitations of a manufacturing process. The goal is to find ways to make the parts look good while still satisfying the injection molder.

 

Establishing a proper risk management system and communicating realistic deadlines are critical to successful production. Having a clear understanding of the various factors that can affect the project will allow the team to manage the risks and stay on schedule.

 

No amount of savings can be rationalized if it undermines the ability to maintain the proper condition of the mold. Also, if the savings are relative to the cost of doing business, they should not be ignored.

 

This step should be focused on the design of the part, its filling, and its ejection attributes. Before making decisions, ask yourself why the part would need to be in the ejection slot in the first place.

 

Make sure that the mold you supply has the features that will save you time and money. These include the connection sizes, clamps, lift bars, and locations for utilities.

 

Before a new tool is brought in, check in with the shop floor to ensure that the parts are assembled correctly. This is also the time to check in with the quality groups to ensure that they have everything they need to hang the mold.
