The ejection method in which small inserts are used to eject the part where there is an undercut is called floating.

31.What is pre-eating?

When the mold is opened, the product stays in the front mold is called the front mold.

32.What is top white?

When ejecting, the mold force required is relatively large, and the ejector pin is not strong enough, so that the product is partially ejected. From the front of the product, there is an obvious white as the top white, which is also called the top nozzle.

33.What is baking?

The marks left by the entry point on the exterior surface of the system during diving are called bake marks.

34.What is a yard?

The code is a clamping tool, a kind of cushion block with a triangular inclined surface opening slot.

35.What is overcutting?

Overcutting refers to excessive cutting, that is, the parts that do not need to be processed are also processed when processing the workpiece. Overcutting is not good.

36.What is the school cup?

The front mold pops out of the mold opening position.

37.What is Yata?

Tapping. Tapping the thread is called Yata.

38.When do two-color molds need to be made?

When a product contains two different materials or different colors of the same material, design a two-color mold for molding.

39.What is the mold design process of the factory?

Customers provide product drawings → analyze products → confirm plastic varieties → confirm mold materials → transfer engineering drawings → multiply and shrink to make mirrors → improve assembly drawings → order mold embryos → order mold core materials → draft → 3D parting → determine runners /Gating method→Refer to the ranking drawing for structural design→dismantle inserts→correct 3D→project drawing “including: mold core/insert/mold blank/parts”→make BOM table→proof and review.

52.What is elastic deformation? What is plastic deformation?

The object deforms under the action of external force. When the external force disappears, the object can return to the deformation before the deformation is called elastic deformation. When the external force disappears, the deformation of the object before the deformation is called plastic deformation.

53.What is the role of water transport?

The role of water transport is to control the temperature of the mold core.

55.What is reverse engineering?

Reverse engineering is the accurate and high-speed scanning of the existing sample or model by a high-speed 3D laser scanner to obtain its 3D contour data, cooperate with the reverse software to reconstruct the curvature, and perform online accuracy analysis and evaluation of the reconstructed surface. The structure effect and the final generation of IGES or STL data can be used for rapid prototyping or CNC machining.
