In the early stage of plastic mold development, the most important thing for product developers and our customers is how long it takes to make molds? Whether it is electronic products, medical products or environmental protection equipment in the market, it will be updated every day, saying that time is not enough money, and it is more like the life of an enterprise. I think this is what most entrepreneurs agree with.
Regarding how long it takes to process plastic molds, this issue cannot be generalized. It should be considered from a variety of factors, such as the difficulty of product structure processing, customer product requirements, product material characteristics, and the minimum order quantity of mold products, that is, the number of mold openings. . Shenzhen Xinghongzhan Technology Co., Ltd. is a modern enterprise integrating plastic mold manufacturing and injection processing. Since the establishment of the company, it has been sincere and honest, based on the business philosophy of Nuoru to create a professional manufacturing brand, a professional quality team, a working attitude of excellence, continuous innovation and the pursuit of excellence. The summary of many years of work experience tells us how to respond to customers' queries about mold manufacturing time. Today we will briefly explain to you how long it takes for plastic mold processing.
The plastic mold processing cycle is strictly scientifically calculated. It is impossible to just pat the head and report a number to the customer. This mainly depends on the complexity of product design structure, size, accuracy, quantity requirements, product performance, etc.
1. Product structure: Refers to the structural difficulty of customers providing samples of plastic parts. Generally, it can be understood as follows: the more complicated the shape of plastic parts, the more difficult it is to make molds. Technically speaking, the more the parting surface of the plastic parts, the more assembly positions, buckling positions, hole positions, and rib positions, the greater the difficulty of processing accordingly. In both cases, the mold production time will be correspondingly longer. Generally speaking, the more complicated the mold structure, the lower the quality, the greater the difficulty of processing, the more problematic points, and the slower the final product effect.

2. Product size: Yes, the larger the size, the longer the plastic mold processing cycle will be. In contrast, the processing time of spare parts will be longer.
3. Product requirements: Different customers must have different product requirements. The design of the appearance is sub-surface or glossy or mirror surface, which affects the production cycle of plastic molds.
4. Product material performance: Often our products have special requirements, and the requirements for mold steel and processing technology are also different. For example, we have made PC and ceramic molds in the early stage of Xinghong Exhibition Technology. The purpose of adding ceramics is insulation and fire protection. It is generally used in led lighting. The requirements for the molds are different. The molds need to be hardened. After hardening, the secondary grinding CNC machine will make the subsequent processing more difficult. Naturally, it will take a little longer. Some molds require anti-corrosion or soft rubber molds. It will be different, and the manufacturing process will be more complicated.
5: The number of cavities in the mold: that is, how many cavities a set of molds, and how many products are produced by a set of molds, depending on the size of the customer's product market, there is definitely a difference between making two products and one product, processing Time will be different. Normally, since the market for new products has not been fully opened, the market demand for the products is not that great. At this time, the number of injection mold cavities is not so much, and the market supply can be guaranteed. The cost performance is relatively the highest. Of course, after the product market is mature, the number of cavities in the mold must be increased. That depends on the market demand to determine whether to make changes in the number of cavities in order to feed back the market demand.
The above are the main factors that determine how long our plastic mold manufacturing takes. The general mold manufacturing cycle is about 20-25 days. It is recommended that product developers have a conservative time in each link of the new product development process. Even if there is a problem, there is still room for maneuver. After the plastic mold is made, the operation of injection molding plastic materials is relatively less complicated, and the molding cycle of plastic parts is basically very easy to measure.
