What is the difference between an injection mold and a plastic mold?

In our daily work and study, we often see the two concepts of injection mold and plastic mold, so what is the difference between the two?In fact, injection molds and plastic molds are both molds, and there are similarities and differences.To understand the difference between them, you must first understand what an injection mold is and what is a plastic mold!

Plastic mold, a combined plastic mold for compression molding, extrusion, injection, blow molding and low-foaming molding, mainly includes a concave mold combined base plate, a concave mold component and a concave mold combined card board. The concave mold of the deformable cavity is a convex mold with a variable core composed of a convex mold combined base plate, a convex mold component, a convex mold combined card board, a cavity cut-off component and a side cut combined board.Coordinated changes of mold convex, concave mold and auxiliary molding system.Series of plastic parts of different shapes and sizes can be processed.

Injection mold is a tool for producing plastic products; it is also a tool for giving plastic products a complete structure and precise dimensions.Injection molding is a processing method used in the mass production of some complex-shaped parts.Specifically, it refers to the high-pressure injection of the plastic melted by heat into the mold cavity by the injection molding machine, and the molded product is obtained after cooling and solidification.The injection mold is composed of a movable mold and a fixed mold. The movable mold is installed on the movable template of the injection molding machine, and the fixed mold is installed on the fixed template of the injection molding machine.During injection molding, the movable mold and the fixed mold are closed to form a pouring system and a cavity. When the mold is opened, the movable mold and the fixed mold are separated to take out the plastic products.In order to reduce the heavy workload of mold design and manufacturing, most of the injection molds use standard mold bases.

As can be seen from the above content, there are still certain differences between plastic molds and injection molds.
