Stack Molds are a series of molding faces “stacked” together to create multiple faces or levels for molding. Each level or face is a parting line and produces molded product.
The benefit of stack molding is to increase the output of a given molding machine and operation. In many cases, parts with a large projected area can be converted or built in a stack mold configuration, doubling the output of a given machine.
Special machine considerations are required to run stack molds, however Focare’s technical team are well versed in providing guidelines and recommendations to ensure success when adopting a stack mold strategy.
Focare provides stack molds in 2, 3 and 4 level configurations based on part designs and volume requirements.
