Stack-Molds (Mould Sandwich)
This type of molds, also known as sandwich molds, are characterized by producing several parts simultaneously, reducing the projected area by half and allowing the use of smaller machines for high productions, lowering production costs.
Bi-Material Molds – 2k
With the evolution of aesthetic, ergonomic and even functional concepts, there is a need to produce pieces that integrate two or more materials or the same material in different colors.
This type of mold makes it possible to obtain parts that meet these specifications.
This injection technology is used when you want to place decorative elements that are durable, avoiding rework processes, such as traditional gluing.
A decorative or identification film is introduced into the mold, on which the plastic material is injected, creating a permanent fusion between the two.
In this process, elements are introduced into the mold on which the injection will be made.
In the most common processes of Overmoulding, metallic uncertainties are used, with the objective of creating parts with specific mechanical properties and/or allowing the connection with other elements, such as, for example, connectors for speakers.
GAS assisted injection
It’s normally used when hollow and low weight parts are required.
In this process, an inert gas is used which, during or immediately after the injection process, is introduced into the mold and removes plastic from the center of the part, creating a void. The polymer is compacted by the gas pressure.
It is a relatively complex process, due to the difficulty of tuning and the waste created when starting the mold.
Thin wall Moulds
It is a technology essentially used in the packaging sector, whether food or non-food, and which is normally combined with IML processes.
They are molds of very reduced thickness that require experience and high precision in their manufacture, since the tolerance is very close to zero.
These molds are high cadence molds and extremely short cycles.
