What is precision injection molding?
Precision injection molding is a method demanding unparalleled accuracy in shaping plastic components. Unlike mass production, it’s reserved for cases where precise forms are crucial. These precise plastic parts are commonly used in replacing high-precision metal parts in fields like instruments, electronics, optics, and medical equipment. Due to these stringent requirements, precision injection molding relies on precise molds and machinery, making it a complex process.
The size tolerance of precision injection molds is controlled to less than 1/3 of the product size tolerance. The mold’s precision depends on factors such as the accuracy of cavity size and quantity, cavity positioning, accuracy of parting surfaces, material selection, size tolerance, and more. Factors like the thickness of the base plate, support plate, cavity walls, and runner size are crucial for precision molds. The design engineering is equally vital, with molds typically made from high-strength alloy steel.
Precision Injection Molding Process:
Every component developed in precision molding projects must be identified, as their connection is uniform. This ensures a slow, stable, and concentrated precision molding process. The uniqueness of the process for each project emphasizes the importance of mold, part design, material selection, and procedures for successful precision molding.
Precision injection molding machines must control product accuracy and repeatability. The machine should feature a rigid clamping system, part size tolerance control, molding speed, and various components like the screw, screw head, barrel, and collar, all controlled within 0.05 to 0.08mm.
Precision injection molding is a game-changer for industries requiring high-tech, detailed, and complex parts in large quantities. WIT MOLD’s expertise in design and manufacturing ensures a seamless experience in large-scale production. Embrace the precision for a future of cost-effective, efficient, and customized manufacturing.

Precision molding part performance requirements
1. Strength and Toughness
High precision tooling and tooling components often operate under harsh conditions. Some are usually subjected to large impact loads that result in brittle fractures. Therefore, precision molds should have high strength and toughness. This is to prevent the molding parts from breaking suddenly during the working process. And the toughness of molds and tools mainly depends on the carbon content, grain size and microstructure of the material.
2. Fatigue fracture performance
High-precision injection molding parts often fatigue fracture when working. This is due to the long-term effects of cyclic stress. Forms include multiple small energy impact, tensile, contact and bending fatigue fracture. In general, this characteristic of custom molding and tooling depends on these factors. For example, its strength, toughness, hardness, and the content of inclusions in the material.
3. High temperature performance
When the working temperature of precision molding and dies is high, the hardness and strength will be reduced. And it will lead to early molding wear or failure due to plastic deformation. Therefore, the molding material should have high tempering stability. It can ensure the molding has high hardness and strength at working temperature.
4. Cold and hot fatigue resistance
Some molds are in the state of repeated heating and cooling during the working process. Then, it causes the cavity surface to be pulled and stressed, leading to surface cracking and spalling. As a result, it increases the friction force. In addition, it prevents plastic deformation and reduces dimensional accuracy. Finally, it leads to molding failure. Hot and cold fatigue is one of the main forms of hot working tool failure.
5. Corrosion resistance
In the working process of some molds, such as plastic injection molding, they produce strong corrosive gases. As the plastic contains chlorine, fluorine and other elements, it will decompose and precipitate HCI and HF. they erode the cavity surface, increase the surface roughness and intensify the wear loss effect.
Factors Affecting Precision Injection Molding:
Cavity size precision
Accurate cavity positioning
Parting surface accuracy
General precision mold size tolerance
Number of cavities in mold design
Thickness of base plate, support plate, cavity walls
Material of precision mold (preferably high-strength alloy steel)
