Which Factors in Injection Molding Processing Are Related to Production Costs?

Injection mold processing can also be said to be a process technology, which is developed in other manufacturing technologies. Of course, there are other ways to use this technology. The premise of this process is to produce a model first and then decompose it in the equipment, and the final separated product is the last thing needed. After a complete set of injection molding products comes out, it needs the cooperation of multiple equipments to come out. They cooperate with each other, and any kind of equipment is indispensable. Only when the best combination is achieved, can a perfect product be made. So which factors in injection molding processing are related to production costs?


1. The relationship between injection molding product cycle time and production cost


Under the premise of ensuring product quality, the shorter the cycle time of injection molding products, the better, so that the larger the production quantity, the lower the manufacturing cost per unit product. What elements are included in the injection molding cycle time: injection time, pressure holding time, cooling time, mold opening time, and ejection time. Some of the most important methods to shorten the injection molding cycle time: reduce the wall thickness of the plastic part, the size of the runner, reduce the distance between the opening and closing of the mold, the stroke of the thimble, quickly take out the product, operate the manipulator, speed up the opening and closing of the safety door, and reduce the stickiness of the plastic part. Mold phenomena, correct selection of cooling time, reasonable setting of mold opening and closing speeds, thimble speeds, times, etc. Reducing injection molding cycle time means increasing productivity.


2. The relationship between the maintenance of injection molds and production costs


If the mold maintenance work is not in place, mold failures will often occur during the production process, and frequent production stoppages will be required for maintenance, which will not only affect the smooth progress of production and the stability of the quality of plastic parts, but also cause economic losses to the enterprise. For example, maintenance costs of injection molding tools, plastic raw materials, power consumption, labor costs, and losses caused by machine downtime. Therefore, we need to carry out proper maintenance work on production tools such as molds. Ensure that the production process will not drop the chain and fail, etc. After the maintenance of the mold is in place, there will be no series of problems later, and the smooth progress of production will be guaranteed. The maintenance of the mold is urgent, and it is an important guarantee for the production to be in place.


3. The relationship between the quality of injection molding products and production costs


"Product quality is the life of an enterprise", the return of plastic parts and high defect rate are the biggest waste, which will affect the reputation of the enterprise and cause great economic losses to the enterprise. If the product quality control in the production of injection molding products is not good, there will be high defective rate, many waste products, low output, returned goods and rework, delayed delivery, and even lost customer orders, and the competitiveness of enterprises will decline. These are things we don't want to see. If there are batch returns in injection molding production, the losses will be even greater. Quality is something we cannot take lightly under any circumstances. Only good quality can have a good reputation. With a good reputation, customers will naturally trust you, and of course orders will continue to come.
