Used in all processes to give the melted plastic its final shape. The terms mold and tool generally refer to parts produced via injection or blow molding. Molds are generally made of tool steel, aluminum, copper and alloys. Mold components consists of components such as mold bases, pins, ejectors, lifters, bushings, guides and alignment devices. From this zone you can link to information on mold maintenance, mold simulation and CAD/CAM.
