Mud Molds For Custom Injection Molding

Sometimes, a company is looking to launch new products using injection molding. Although this process is very useful for certain applications, it can be challenging to justify the investment in large multi-cavity injection molds to produce the exact quantity that is required. In these cases, it can be difficult to justify the investment in a multi-cavity injection mold to produce the exact quantity that is required.

In these cases, it can be difficult to justify the investment in a multi-cavity injection mold to produce the exact quantity that is required.


Apply Mud Mold for Injection Molding

MUD frames and insert caps are commonly used to produce molded components that do not require a stand-alone mold. MUD is a brand name that refers to the various components of a mold. Doing so can be very time-efficient and cost-effective. More information on MUD capabilities and options can be found on the manufacturer’s website here: www.team-mfg.com. One example is the concept of a MUD Frame, which is an interchangeable main chassis that can be installed and removed from a Mud Insert. This design feature allows a machine to easily transform a single unit into a series of MUD Inserts. The mating components of a MUD Frame and a mating insert can be installed in a machine to produce parts.


Flexible Injection Molding Design Options by Mud Molds

Mud insert caps can be designed to fit multiple cavities, and they can be used as proof-of-concept or long-term production tooling. If you're thinking about implementing a Mud system for injection molding, contact us at Injection Works. We have a wide variety of MUD frames in stock and can help get your project started quickly. Typical projects that can benefit from using the MUD system approach include:

● Prototype/Proof of Concept Phase Testing

● Products that likely require near-term or multiple engineering design modifications during early launch

● Lower Quantity Production Volume Requirements

● Products that require extremely fast realization from Design Completion to First Molded Parts Delivery


Among the Advantages of the MUD System approach are:

● A potentially substantially lower up-front tooling investment requirement

● Faster time to production from the initial tooling fabrication order date (can be just a few weeks vs. a few months)

● Lower product manufacturing costs due to minimal mold changeover and machine downtime intervals


If you'd like to discuss your project with us and see if MUD frames are a good fit, we’re happy to talk with you more. Just contact us.
