What factors will affect the cost of a mold?
The cost of the base is estimated from the size of the mold, the type of steel used to make the base, and if customization is required. The mold base holds all the mold cavities, inserts and components together that normally come in standard sizes, but can be machined to meet the requirements of a specific design.
Number of Cavities
Fewer cavities in a mold require less tooling work time and less cost. The more cavities a mold has requires more tooling work and time because of the complex designs. Experience molders will be able to maximize cavitation for optimal productivity.
Except the above, also there will be the core metal, machining of the core/ cavity & complexity of the part.
Anyway, if you’re still looking for the good two tone mold maker in China, we can be your another good choice.
