Plastic injection mold (aka injection mould in UK) is a tool for manufacturing plastic parts, also makes the plastic parts have full structures and precise dimensions.

Why Make Plastic Injection Molds in China?

You may ask yourself, why have my molds made in China? You have probably heard bad stories about plastic injection molds from China being of low quality, yet there are many companies that continue to buy injection molds from China; some of them placing big volume orders and some even opening their own sourcing office in China. Are those companies making a mistake? No. China injection mold makers can manufacture high quality molds as good as American and European companies do but at competitive lower prices.

In China these days, more and more plastic injection mold makers hire competent salespeople that speak English well and are good at both aspects of the business: sales and knowledge of the field. As we are all aware, understanding the technical part of the business is equally important for an injection mold making project. Most Chinese salespeople nowadays are good at CAD drawing, choosing materials and the mold making process in general; therefore, they have no problem conveying their ideas to the engineers.

How to select a Chinese injection mold supplier?

Always do thorough research when outsourcing plastic injection manufacturers. You can always take into consideration the list below when/before selecting a Chinese injection mold supplier:

  • References —Get it from them and do your homework
  • Origin of tool steel
  • Capital investment in shop and equipment — Is it a dive?
  • In place (established method) project plan that shows every aspect of build and give updates
  • Quality Systems
  • Validation Systems
  • Knowledge of your product — Have they done this before?
  • How much capability do they have — Can they do everything in-house?
  • Capacity and what is it at the moment you are placing your P.O.
  • Are they able to service you globally?

Metal Parts Manufacturing

  • Stamping
  • Sandcasting (for larger runs)
  • Die casting
    Durable, precise castings in a variety of sizes, shapes and wall thicknesses.

Custom plastic injection molding in China is especially effective when the plastics require secondary operations for completion. These secondary operations include anything from cleaning parts, over-molding, painting, drilling holes, pad printing, screen-printing, or partial sub-assemblies. In China they are able to take advantage of their lower labor rates to greatly reduce the costs for their customers. They are able to utilize high-end second-op machining and balancing machines when needed for plastic injection molding parts where tolerances cannot be met during molding operations.
