Cavitation Mold Making
Cavitation is one of the most important aspects of determining your company’s production process and costs, whether the mold is plastic or metal. There are pros and cons to both high cavitation molds and low cavitation molds, affecting the price per part, efficiency and quality. Our mold making engineers will walk your company through all the options before we begin manufacturing your injection mold tooling.
High Cavitation Molds
A high cavitation mold produces more parts per cycle. It costs more upfront but has a lower individual per-part cost. Using more cavities at once reduces the machine’s production time. Multiple cavities are great for designs that have been tested and already exist as a reliable product. To avoid waste created from correcting the design, high cavitation models are not recommended for new parts. High cavitation is great for simple parts and components of standard thickness.
High cavitation molds are widely used in the following manufacturing industries:
Low Cavitation Molds
A low cavitation mold has a smaller tooling cost upfront and allows for better quality control, but comes with a higher per-part price tag. Making only one or a handful of molds at a time can reduce the number of errors in the production process. Because the molds have more time in a uniform temperature, low cavitation handles high part complexity and thin walls better than high cavitation.
Low cavitation molds are widely used in the following industries:
Deciding & Designing Your Mold’s Cavitation Level
If you don’t already have a cavitation mold design, contact Mantz Automation. Our experts will work with you to determine the best design for your company. We work with you every step of the way, from the initial planning stage all the way through fabrication and in-house testing.
Whether you decide on low cavitation, high cavitation, or somewhere in between, your mold can only manufacture effectively if it is designed and built with expert precision. Since the molds make your products, it’s incredibly important to make sure the molds themselves are made right.
Mantz Automation has designed and built cavitation molds for companies around the world. When we finish building your molds, we put them through rigorous testing to ensure their quality before sending them to your facility.
Mold & Die Materials
Mantz Automation can craft molds out of a variety of materials depending on how long your production run will be. A longer production run will require a metal mold to ensure durability while a short run may suffice with a strong plastic mold. Contact our mold specialists to find out which material will be best for your manufacturing needs. Find out more about each plastic material and metal alloy below.
