Production Molds

The Class of a Production Mold is typically determined by the number of parts that will ultimately be produced by the tool. At PMI, we work with our customers to understand their long-term project goals in order to recommend and build a mold best suited to their particular application. For example, molds needed to produce a lower volume of parts can be made using softer steels (often P-20) saving our customers the expense of a tool made from hard steels or other costlier materials.

The Society of Plastics Industry Trade Association (SPI) categorizes plastic injection Production Molds into the following three classes:

Class 101 Injection Molds:

Class 102 Injection Molds:

Class 103 Injection Molds:
