In the manufacturing process, especially in the process of industrial production machinery parts, various functional parts must be formed by molds. And now more and more production enterprises use plastic molds for parts production and processing, which also reduces production costs for enterprises.
In recent years, China’s plastic mold has developed rapidly. At present, plastic molds account for about 30% of the entire mold industry, and up to 50 to 70% in mold imports and exports. With the rapid development of China’s national economy pillar industries such as machinery, automobiles, home appliances, electronic information and building materials, this proportion will continue to increase.
According to expert predictions, the overall trend of the mold market is steady and upward. In the future mold market, the development speed of plastic molds will be higher than other molds, and the proportion in the mold industry will gradually increase.
Due to the complex shape and flexible design of plastic parts, there are higher requirements for mold materials, design level and processing equipment. However, there is still a big gap between China’s mold design and manufacturing level and foreign developed countries. Three major bottlenecks in development: one is to intensify the research and development of plastic materials and injection molding processes; the second is that plastic mold enterprises should develop to the park to speed up the integration of resources; the third is that the tooling level of mold test results inspection must be kept up as soon as possible, otherwise Mold development will be restricted.
