During the whole production process, the mold is the most important part of the workpiece’s formation. A mold is a model, used to complete the processes of injection molding, blow molding, extrusion, die-casting, or forging, smelting, stamping, and stretching in industrial production. The common types of mold we use are: stamping molds, plastic molds, blow molds, and die-casting molds.
According to the different processing technology, We commonly use punching mold, bending mold, drawing mold, and forming mold.
Punching mold: The punching is completed by a punch and a die. The punch and the die form a set of blades, which press the material in the middle, and the punch gradually approaches the die to separate the materials.
Bending mold: Bending is the use of pressure to plastically deform the material, which is then bent into a shape with a certain curvature and a certain angle.
Drawing mold: Drawing is to change the flat wool into hollow parts, or to further change the shape and size of the hollow parts.
Forming mold: Forming process refers to various processing methods that use various local deformation methods to change the shape of parts or blanks.
According to the different steps of processing, we will classify the mold into single process mold, compound mold, progressive mold (continuous mold)
