5 Ways to save money on your plastic injection moulding tool

When it comes to manufacturing a plastic product it’s always important to consider cost saving factors. CJ Tool and Mouldings have an experienced team that knows how to achieve greater cost savings related to your injection moulding needs.


Take part size into consideration

Whilst designing your part you should look to achieve your goal using as little material possible. Not only will large parts or features increase material costs, but they will increase cycle time due to more time needed for injection moulding and cooling.



Don’t use unnecessary cosmetics and features

It’s important to not spare on your features and cosmetics, but this doesn’t mean you should add everything you can think off. It’s important to have an aesthetically pleasing injection moulding part, but the additional effort required in the mould can sometimes cut into your profit margin.



Design for manufacturability analysis

Here at CJ Tool and mouldings we apply the innovation filter into each stage of the injection moulding process. This means we identify any issues early on throughout every stage. This saves time and money in the long run, simply by identifying problems early on.


Intelligent mould design

You can save money through the positioning of your part in the mould. This can have a significant impact on cost as through proper positioning you can reduce scrap and optimise how the mould fills. Intelligent mould design also ensures your part won’t be damaged during the injection moulding ejection process.



Modify your moulds

Instead of having to buy an entirely new mould for every revision you make, a bit of forward thinking can help you reuse a mould multiple times. You can use injection moulding tool inserts that can mould various versions and features. These methods are much preferred to cutting multiple tools and offer significant savings.
