In the two-shot molding process, there is at least five main elements are essential:
The plastic part analysis and mould evaluation.
Before the mould design, part analysis and mould evaluation are very necessary, we normally work from part appearance, dimension and geometry shape.
The mould structure
Good mould design should first meet customers' requirements, and save costs for the factory, reduce processing difficulty and shorten customers' lead time. To achieve the goal, the designers must not only fully understand the needs of clients, but also very familiar with the injection molding machine specification, mould structure, technology of mold making process and the factory capabilities.
Steel selection for double shot mould
Steel is very critical for two-shot mold. The steel should have features of toughness, wear resistance, high-temperature performance, fatigue fracture properties, resistance to cold & heat, corrosion resistance.
Tools processing, fitting and assembly
In addition to good mould design and steel selection reasonable, the accuracy of the two-shot mould is also very critical in subsequent processing, fitting and assembly. In order to ensure the precision of mould processing, HanKing is equipped with advanced processing machines and experienced technical staff.
Double shot mould trial, testing and validation
In order to avoid time-wasting and energy during subsequent mass production after mould gives to customers, it is very necessary to have mould trial and testing after the mold is assembled. In HanKing, we have injection operator team responsible for mould trial, validation job, the will try different temperature under different pressure condition in order to find the best molding pressure and temperature, our project manager will take records and video for each mould trial & validation.
HanKing mould produces a variety of 2K injection mold such as two color toothbrush mold, two shot cup cap mold, two-material molding container & lid mould, mobile phone cover mould, double shot plastic jug mould, household, electrical and medical plastic parts mould, etc..
HanKing advantages in two-shot part mould:
Designers know well about two shot technology.
Engineers and project managers are skillful in the different standard mould and capable of communication in English.
Mature technical team with complete equipment support.
