Metal stamping mold and plastic mold are widely used in industrial production. For the difference between them, many people will say that metal stamping mold is made of metal and plastic mold is made of plastic. So which industry are they mainly used in? What is the essential difference? Let's talk about it
1. In industrial production, metal stamping die is a kind of product which is made of metal materials by various presses and special tools installed on the presses. This kind of special tools are collectively referred to as metal stamping die.
2. Plastic mold is a kind of combined plastic mold used for compression molding, extrusion, injection, blow molding and low foaming molding. The utility model mainly comprises a concave die with a variable cavity which is composed of a concave die combination base plate, a concave die component and a concave die combination card board, and a convex die with a variable core which is composed of a convex die combination base plate, a convex die component, a convex die combination card board, a cavity cutting component and a side section combination board. Coordinate changes of punch, die and auxiliary forming system. It can process series plastic parts of different shapes and sizes.
3. The essential difference between them is that the hardware products come out of the metal stamping die, and the plastic products come out of the plastic die. The structure of the die is also different. The plastic die has a cooling system, but the metal die does not. The molding principle of the product is also different. The plastic mold is cooled after injection molding, and the hardware mold is cold formed with standard thickness steel plate.
4. From the function of the mold, the metal mold is a mass production tool for metal products. The materials it uses are usually iron, copper or aluminum. The plastic mold is used for plastic products, and the raw materials used are also plastic materials.
