What is the mold?
A mold is a tool used to make shaped objects.
1. Molds, various molds and tools used in industrial production to obtain the required products by injection molding, blow molding, extrusion, die-casting or forging molding, smelting, stamping, etc., in short, molds are used to shape objects Tool, this tool is composed of various parts, and different molds are composed of different parts. It mainly realizes the processing of the shape of the article through the change of the physical state of the molded material. It is known as the "mother of industry".
2. The mold is generally divided into two parts: a movable mold and a fixed mold, or a convex mold and a concave mold, which can be separated or combined. The blank is loaded or the part is taken out when separating, and the part is separated or formed from the blank when closed. In the process of punching, forming, stamping, die forging, cold heading, pressing and compression molding, the external force required for separation or forming is applied to the blank through the mold; Plugs, punches, etc. are applied to the blank, and the die bears the expansion force of the blank.
3. The main work engaged in mold design includes: (1) Digital drawing-converting three-dimensional product and mold model into two-dimensional engineering drawing used in conventional processing; (2) Digital design of mold-according to product model and design intent , Establish the relevant three-dimensional solid model of the mold; (3) Digital analysis and simulation of the mold-According to the product forming process conditions, carry out structural analysis, thermal analysis, fatigue analysis and mold movement analysis of the mold parts; (4) Product forming process simulation ——Injection molding, stamping molding; (5) Customization is suitable for the company's mold design standard parts and standard design process; (6) Mold production management.
