Mould maker in China for plastic injection moulds & die cast molds
How to ask a quote for a injection mould from Suntime Precision Mould?
We need information as below. The more sufficient information we have, the price will be more accurate.
1.Part 2D/3D drawings. If no drawings, clear photos showing the structure and dimension, or, samples to our factory directly. File format: Dwg, Dxf, Edrw, Step, Igs, X_T
2.Cavities information. How many cavities will have big impact on tooling price and lead time.
3.Steel material. Different material has different mold life and advantages, it will affect the tooling price a lot. If you don’t know material, telling us the annual volume will be helpful.
4.Runner type: cold runner and hot runner have different cost and specialties.
5.Plastic material (resin). This is not a must, but knowing it will be very helpful to make an accurate price estimation.
More information of details / specifications will help us to quote more accurate. Send us quote and get the price & lead time within 24 hours!

How to do plastic injection mould design?
A good mold design is the critical start. With your part drawings (2d/3d), our designers and engineers will have a meeting to discuss the part structure, difficulties, customer's requests and have a concept of mould design for it.
1. DFM: show the mould layout concept, cooling, injection system, ejection system, wall thickness, draft angle, engraving, surface finishing, design failure mode and effects analysis and other mould release issues.
2. Mold flow
3. Mould 2D layout design
4. Mould 3D design (software: UG)
What is a good mold? It must have good quality to meet production requests stable and smoothly, and no need to spend too much time & cost for maintenance and repair.
Suntime has 6 designers in total with more than 5-10 years’ experience, they always pay special attentions on customers' specification and details by thinking about the cost-saving solution based on stable and good quality. Their years’ experience for exporting molds give them great knowledge for global mold standards and quality demands.
What is injection mould manufacturing and project management?
•With customers' parts drawing (2D&3D) and specification, we hold kick off meetings with designers, engineers and operation manager together to learn details and make memo for the projects.
•After customers approval for DFM, they start the 2D layout & 3D mold drawing & Mold flow analysis in short time.
•During all the process, weekly report will be provided every Monday to make sure customers have all things under control.
For mold trials, we send trial report with mold photos, samples photos, short shot photo, weight photo, moulding issues and our solutions. Meanwhile, Moulding video, inspection report and moulding parameter will be provided as fast as possible after. With customers’ approval to send samples, we send parts by express under Suntime's account.
More information, please check our 'Engineering' https://www.suntimemould.com/engineering/
•Mold corrections or modifications will be started at once after communication with customers. Normally, second trial will happen within 3~7 days.
•When samples get approved, we will prepare the final data for this tooling project in a memory stick including final 2D&3D mould design, BOM, certifications, components and moulds details' photos (like electrical connectors, water fittings, core and cavity, shot counter, lift strap etc) and any other requested information. At the same time, our production workers and engineers will clean molds and do double check based on our mould delivery checking list before packing. The check list have all the details and customers' requests so that we can inspect all according to it and make sure customers can have the moulds that they wanted. Suntime will use vacuum packing or anti-rust paper for transportation, we will use grease oil on the surface according to customers requests and transportation method (air, sea or train).
•For transportation including air shipping, sea shipping, train shipping and express shipping, we arrange transportation and do related packing according to customers requests and work tightly with customers' forwarders. And if customers want to use our forwarders, we also have very professional partners to help exporting & importing for many years. Their experience helped us a lot, we are sure the goods can arrive to customers fast and smoothly with their good service.
