Process: Mould Tools

Overview

Mould tools are used within the various methods utilised to mould plastic and rubber components. The mould cavity mirrors the desired shape of the component to be moulded, before being filled with molten material and cooled to solidify the component. It is important that the mould tool allows trapped air to escape so that the structural integrity of the component is not compromised by air bubbles. It is also usually necessary for the mould tool to incorporate channels, through which water can be circulated to cool the component - if this is not achieved at the necessary rate, the component can subsequently be distorted. Once the component is sufficiently cooled, ejectors are used to push it from the mould.
