Mould And Moulding Process

Moulding is the process of shaping material to fit into the desired form. This process can be carried out by hand, or with the help of machines. An object that is used to create the desired shape is called the “mould”.

Steps for Moulding Process at Vocal Tech

Mould design 

Mould design is the process of designing the shape of a mold by considering factors like dimensions, gate locations, shear edges, material, cooling, and ejection techniques. Moulds are usually made out of metal but can be made out of other materials like silicone or plastic. The design of moulds not only determines the quality of products but also determines production efficiency and machine life. 


This process is done by injecting the plastic material between two metal plates that are shaped like the desired shape and then heating the metal plate to make it harden.


clamping is a process in which molten metal is poured into a mould. The molten metal cools and solidifies to form the desired shape. The clamps are used to hold the mould together during the cooling process. The clamps are usually made out of wood or metal and they are attached to the edges of the mould using screws.


The cooling process is an important part of the production line. It is the last step before the moulded product is taken off the machine. The cooling process prevents any deformities in the product and also helps to prevent any breakages later on. The cooling process usually takes around two minutes and it can be done by several different methods. 


An ejection in moulding process is the separation of casting from the die and the separation of core boxes.

Mould Opening Process

The mould opening process is a complicated one. To get the best results, it is important to have a deep knowledge of the shape and material used for castings. Opening of mould should be done without damaging the moulded part.
