Plastic Injection Mold Types

Mold Types to Fit Your Production Volume and Budget

ICOMold is a plastic injection molding company that offers a variety of choices in plastic injection mold types, depending on the quantity of parts you need manufactured. From a low-cost steel prototype mold with a warranty of 10,000 parts, to an unlimited production mold with a lifetime warranty, we give you various options to fit your part production quantity and budget. Depending on how many plastic parts you want to produce with your mold, our engineers will select the appropriate steel material for it, and you’ll get a tooling life warranty for the amount of your production volume. If you choose our production mold option, we provide a lifetime warranty for unlimited production. As long as we are making the parts for you in our production facilities, we will maintain, refurbish or replace the tool as needed at our cost. P-20 is a general purpose mold steel designed for the plastic mold industry, and it is the steel we use for our production molds. However, other types of steel are also used for our molds that are warrantied for fewer quantities of parts. See the table below for steel material and tool life warranty options.
