Molding or moulding is the process of manufacturing by shaping liquid or pliable raw material using a rigid frame called a mould or matrix. This itself may have been made using a pattern or model of the final object.
A mold or mould is a hollowed-out block that is filled with a liquid or pliable material such as plastic, glass, metal, or ceramic raw material. The liquid hardens or sets inside the mould, adopting its shape. A mould is the counterpart to a cast. The very common bi-valve moulding process uses two moulds, one for each half of the object. Piece-moulding uses a number of different moulds, each creating a section of a complicated object. This is generally only used for larger and more valuable objects.
The manufacturer who makes the moulds is called the mouldmaker. A release agent is typically used to make removal of the hardened/set substance from the mould easier. Typical uses for moulded plastics include moulded furniture, moulded household goods, moulded cases, and structural materials.
Types of moulding include:
• Blow moulding
• Powder metallurgy plus sintering
• Compression moulding
• Extrusion moulding
• Injection moulding
What is Mould base
Mould base is a comprehensive name used for the parts for containing the cavity for plastic injection mould, and also has the role of directly installing the mould to the plastic injection moulding machine.
Mould base is a set of parts that constitute the outer periphery part of a plastic injection mould, and is constituted mainly from the following parts.
• Fixed half retainer plate
• Fixed half mould plate
• Moving half mould plate
• Spacer blocks
• Ejector plate (top)
• Ejector plate (bottom)
• Moving half retainer plate
• Runner stripper plates (in the case of a 3-plate structure)
