Production stages

In all production stages of mould, quality control is performed.

Process of production of moulds is classified into several stages:

  1. RECEIPT OF ORDER
    On the basis of data submitted by client in the form of sample, sketch or mathematical (computer-generated) 3D model, we determine technological opportunities of article production and discuss possible improvement and simplification of construction if necessary. After harmonisation of contract and confirmation of order, we move to the next stage.
  2. FORMATION OF PLASTIC PROTOTYPE OF ARTICLE
    In certain cases, prototype of article is made with the help of 3D printing method. In such a way, there is an opportunity to see plastic article from all sides without significant contributions, as well as to detect faults both in design and construction. Nowadays, there are enough various materials for acquisition of prototypes which are close to the final product.
  3. PROJECTING OF MOULD
    It is one of the most important stages in production of mould. In accordance with technical task of client, our specialists work on projecting in compliance with the chosen article and construction of mould. Analysis of article in a mould and injection emulation of plastic melt is carried out, as well as model of mould is created. After coordination of principal scheme of mould with customer, components are ordered and details of mould are produced.
  4. PRODUCTION OF MOULD
    On the basis ofthe approved drawings, materials are purchased – steel, standardised plates, columns, plugs, guides, fittings, etc. In case of production of hot runner mould, additional analysis of detail injection flow is carried out and hot runner system is ordered.
    Production includes the following stages: numerical program control, roughing, thermal treatment of components, wire cutting, electric erosion machining, final treatment. At every production stage, accuracy test of the performed work is carried out.
  5. TESTING OF MOULDS
    On completion of the main production process, adjustment of details and assembly of mould is performed; after that it is repeatedly tested with our equipment. The obtained samples are measured and compared with sketches. If article is appropriate, it is delivered to client for approval. If inaccuracies are detected in article, improvement of mould, as well as repeated testing is carried out.
  6. DELIVERY OF MOULD TO CUSTOMER
    After approval of conformity in relation to geometry of interim samples, final adjustment of mould, polishing of component surface, as well as final testing of mould is carried out. After that, according to the agreement, mould is delivered to customer, or taking-over certificate is signed at our testing department in the presence of both parties.
