What are Plastic Injection Mould Tools

Plastic Injection Mould Tools consist of two halves that clamp together to create an air gap between them that forms the shape of the product to be moulded. One is known as the fixed half and stays static in the machine with a feature to allow the plastic resin to enter the mould under pressure. When the plastic has cooled sufficiently the tool is split open with the product being held on the moving half of the tool. This will usually have a system to eject the product from the tool. Production mould tools are generally manufactured from steel whereas low volume and pre-production development tools can be produced from either steel or aluminium.
