    What is Die Casting Mold?

    Die casting (also called pressure die casting) is a special metal casting process. By pouring molten or semi-molten metal into the cavity of the casting machine, the metal liquid is filled into the die-casting mold cavity at high speed under high pressure, and the precision casting method is obtained through cooling and solidification. This process is somewhat similar to injection molding. Most di...

    What should we pay attention to for Hot Runner Mold Design?

    1.To determine the gate location according to the plastic part structure and usage requirements. As long as the structure allows, the nozzle and nozzle head in the fixed mold insert does not interfere with the molding structure, and the gate of the hot runner system can be at any position of the plastic part. The position of the injection gate for conventional plastic injection molding is usually ...
