- Classification of injection molds:
According to the molding process: hot work mold and cold work mold
According to molding materials: metal molds and non-metal molds
Divided by production volume: sample mold (simple mold) and mass production mold
Divided by mold material: soft mold and hard mold
2. Mold types classified by molding materials:
Metal material molds are divided into casting molds, die-casting molds, stamping molds (bending, punching, blanking, stretching, shaping, flanging, etc.), forging molds (hot forging, cold heading, rolling, drawing, extrusion, etc.), powder metallurgy mold (isostatic pressing powder metallurgy, metal injection molding powder metallurgy, powder forging powder metallurgy, pressure sintering powder metallurgy), etc.
Non-metal material molds are divided into plastic molding molds (extrusion molding, blow molding, injection molding, compression molding, gas-assisted, vacuum suction molding, etc.), rubber molds, glass molds, ceramic molds, powder metallurgy molds (PTFE), etc.
