Here are other factors that affect the price of plastic molds from Chair Mold Manufacturers:
Number of cavities - Molds that use fewer cavities in the mold require less machining work and cost significantly less. However, plastic molds made by professional molders can increase efficiency because they have the greatest number of cavities. Typically, molders create a plastic mold for each part. They don't support home molds as these end up being substandard products and possibly more downtime due to maintenance issues.
Core Metals - In order to shorten the production cycle (which means lower production costs), some molders choose aluminum molds. There's nothing wrong with that, as long as you know you'll only be using these plastic molds for a short period of time. However, if you plan to use these molds for many years, it's not cost-effective to use aluminum molds, as these molds will only last a few years.
Core and Cavity Machining - All plastic injection molds must be custom made - cavities, cores, cooling lines, etc. When using steel in tooling, you can be sure that this affects the price of plastic molds, as each plastic mold made of hardened steel takes longer to machine and is expensive to machine. However, the benefit is that it lasts longer.
Mold Base - This is another factor that makes plastic molds cheaper or more expensive. When the material used for the mold base is steel (specifically high-quality steel) and the size is larger than normal, it will definitely affect the cost. In addition to customization and machining requirements to meet project needs.
