Injection mold is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting material into a mould. Injection moulding can be performed with a host of materials mainly including metals, (for which the process is called die-casting), glasses, elastomers, confections, and most commonly thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers. Material for the part is fed into a heated barrel, mixed, and forced into a mould cavity, where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity.:240 After a product is designed, usually by an industrial designer or an engineer, moulds are made by a mould-maker (or toolmaker) from metal, usually either steel or aluminium, and precision-machined to form the features of the desired part. Injection moulding is widely used for manufacturing a variety of parts, from the smallest components to entire body panels of cars. Advances in 3D printing technology, using photopolymers which do not melt during the injection moulding of some lower temperature thermoplastics, can be used for some simple injection moulds.
Parts to be injection moulded must be very carefully designed to facilitate the moulding process; the material used for the part, the desired shape and features of the part, the material of the mould, and the properties of the moulding machine must all be taken into account. The versatility of injection moulding is facilitated by this breadth of design considerations and possibilities.
Rapid prototyping technology is also called rapid prototyping (Rapid Prototyping And manufacturing, referred to as rpm) TECHNOLOGY, was born out of the the second half of the 1980s s, a high accumulation of law is based on the materials manufacturing technology, is considered to be close to 20 a significant results over the years in the field of manufacturing. it combines mechanical engineering, cad, reverse engineering, layered manufacturing technology, numerical control technology, materials science, laser technology in one, can be automatic, direct, rapid, accurate will be designing the shift in thinking for a certain function of prototype or direct manufacture of spare parts, so as to spare parts prototyping, new design ideas the validator and provides an efficient low cost means of their achievement. i.e., the development of rapid prototyping technology is the use of 3D cad data, through rapid prototyping machine, will be a layer of stacked layers of materials into entities of the prototype.
Application of rapid prototyping technology is the continuous enhancement of rp and important factor in the development of technology, currently rp TECHNOLOGIES has been in industrial modeling, arts and culture, machinery manufacturing (cars, motorcycles), aerospace, military, construction, film and television, household appliances, light industry, medicine, archaeology, culture and arts, sculpture, jewellery and other fields have been a wide range of applications. and with this technology in their own development, their application will be continuing to expand.
(1) in the course of the development of new products of design validation and functional verification. in the rp technology can be applied in new product design process for the design and development of a staff to build a brand new product development pattern, using the technology to allow for quick, direct, accurate will design ideas by converting the has a certain function of the entity model (sample), the design idea and makes it easy to verify the design personnel the rationality of product structure, can be fitted with sexual, aesthetics, to facilitate the timely detection of problems in the design and can be refined product design. this not only greatly shortens the development cycle, reduce development costs, so that enterprises in the fierce market competition in the possession of the competitive advantage.
(2) single, small batch and special direct production of complex parts. some special complex parts in machinery manufacturing in the area just a single piece or small batch production of less than 50, this kind of products through the modelling of the reproduction, high cost, long cycle. rp technology to their own unique characteristics can be direct molding, production costs are low, and of short duration.
(3) the product display. rp prototype is a product from design to commercialization in every link of the effective means to communicate. in the global economy of economic globalization today, many export oriented enterprises are often faced with foreign demand to see sample orders. how could not provide mold test cases of the fastest production samples, to seize market opportunities. in such circumstances, rp TECHNOLOGIES also reflects a clear advantage.
(4) rapid tooling. will the rapid prototyping technology with the traditional mold manufacturing technology combined, can lead to a significant reduction of the development of mold manufacturing cycle, improve production efficiency.
