Injection molds are designed and built to allow parts to be produced from various polymers and to be utilized for a variety of applications. A mold design team must possess the ability to evaluate and determine the optimal mold steel for each mold component to effectively produce high quality plastic parts.
Topics in this lesson include: the most common mold steel materials and what attributes they should possess; the best mold steel options for different polymer materials, injection pressures, and production cycles; temperature distribution behavior for molds with different mold steels and mold components.
