How does a 3 plate mold work?

How does a 3 plate mold work?

A three-plate mold is used when part of the runner system is on a different plane to the injection location. This second parting plane enables the runners and sprue to be ejected when the mold is opened. In the following diagram of a three-plate mold, the runners will be ejected separately to the cavities.

What is the difference between 2 plate Mould and 3 plate Mould?

To sum up, two plate molds are the most commonly used injection moulds. It consists of one parting plane and mold splits into two halves, whereas three plate injection mold consists of two parting planes and mold splits into three sections.

What are the advantages of a three plate mold versus a two plate mold?

Three plate mold design has more advantages to locate the gate. It can have a gate located at the middle of the plastic part and allows pin-point gates. Compared to two plate mold or a hot-runner mold, three plate mold is cheaper to build and less likely to break down.

How many daylight are normally available in a three plate mould?

The molds are classified into two plate mold and three plate mold depending on daylight in mold, the two plate mold will have single day light and three plate mold will have two daylight (multiple).

Which gate is used in three plate Mould?

The mechanism that guarantees the mold opening sequence and mold opening distance is called the fixed distance parting mechanism. (1) Three-plate injection mold can be gated from any point in the cavity, and pinpoint gates are often used.

What is sprue bushing?

Sprue bushings are hardened-steel mold components that accept an extrusion nozzle and provide the opening used to transfer molten plastic to the mold cavity. Rigidity is important since the sprue is often the point at which pickers or other industrial robots grasp molded parts for removal.

What is the function of locating ring?

A locating ring’s basic job function is to locate or align the orifice of the hot or cold sprue with the through hole in the machine’s stationary platen. The sprue orifice is usually in the center of a sprue bushing, and the locating ring aligns the bushing to the center of the platen.
