How to reduce your plastic housing mold project cost ?
Plastic housing and injection molding are widely used everywhere in our daily life. It is a normal and low cost solution for our machine or device mechanical parts. But sometimes the price is too high and it restrict our new production development. Here today Asia Billion would like share with you some ideals.
1) Simple your production design
Design is important for the plastic housing and mold cost. We need to design the part without the special features which need special mold solution, such as click, lifters, sliders or screwing. Of course sometimes it is necessary for these feature and we have to do like this.
Some too thin or too thick wall will not good and need more cost for production, please see Asia Billion suggestions for different wall and material wall thickness proposal.
2) Production material
Production material is one of the key factors for the unit price, we need to choose the right raw material which can meet your target, the too much exceed your testing or using environment is a big wastage for the high price engineering material. Normally the material cost can reach to 30% to 50% of the total unit price.
3) Mold solution and design
3.1) The mold solution also can have great effect for your project spending. If the volume is high but you just make a low efficiency one cavity or 2 cavities mold. The unit price will be higher. So please choose the proper cavity of your mold.
3.2) mold design with good solution and cycle time. The cycle time is another key factor which have great effect the unit price. A mold with perfect cycle time always need good design solution, good mold steel and perfect cooling. But these will increase your mold making cost. So we need to find a proper balance solution for your project.
3.3) automatic running without second operation
We need to make sure that our plastic housing can be made automatically. If there are some second operation, such as painting, welding, insertion or some others. The cost will increase a lot. Normally the texture or high polishing finished are more efficient than the painting or sand blasting. The logo also can be made by the molding directly , it is cheaper than printing . Of course sometimes we have to do the printing for decoration.
4. Efficiency volume and proper packing
The MOQ for the plastic housing is important for the unit price. If you just need several units and make a mold for production, this investment will be huge for your total project budget. But when the volume to much more , the unit price will be much lower. Additionally the mold trial or molding transfer need some starting cost due to the supplier need to transfer the line, washer the machine and adjust the mold for production, normally the cost will be from several hundreds to several thousands US dollars, this cost will share to your unit price too.
Packing is another factor which can affect your unit cost. However it depend on different marketing strategy and ideals.
