Family Molds

Family Injection Molds

“Family” plastic injection molds produce a set of parts similar in size that are molded at the same time, in the same quantities, from the same material and color. Family injection molds can produce plastic injection molded parts in sets at the same time. The parts molded from a family mold are often used together, such as the two halves of a product.
One advantage of having us make a family mold for you is that the tooling cost of one mold is lower than having multiple, single-cavity molds. Also, the piece price of the parts will be lower due to economies of scale – one setup versus multiple setups, no color change, etc.

Required Criteria for Family Injection Molds

>  Parts must be of the same material
>  Parts must be the same color
