Borke Mold Specialists: Precision in Production—An Approach to Economical Mould Tooling Design

In the article “Design for Manufacture: How To Save Money on Mould Tooling” by Simon Jones on LinkedIn, the significance of mould tooling in plastic manufacturing is emphasized. While the initial cost of creating mould tools can be substantial, the long-term benefits, especially in terms of economies of scale, justify the investment. PRV Engineering shares valuable tips in this article on optimizing the design for manufacturing (DFM) process to minimize expenses related to mould tooling.

Mould tooling is a critical process involving the creation of precise and durable tools or moulds used in plastic or metal part manufacturing. These moulds, made from high-strength materials like steel, aluminum, or composites, undergo a meticulous process comprising design, machining using precision machinery like CNC machines, and finishing, ensuring a flawless end product.

The completion of the mould tooling process enables the injection moulding process, where molten plastic or metal is injected into the mould, allowing it to cool, harden, and yield the final product. The pivotal role of mould tooling in enabling efficient and cost-effective production of high-quality parts in large quantities is recognized.
