What is Production Tooling?

There are mainly three toolings used for injection molding projects: prototype, bridge, and production tooling.

What is Production Tooling?

Production tooling is used for a high-volume injection molding process to mass produce a part or product. Its mold is made from rigid steel and contains a cooling system, which makes its cost higher than bridge or prototype tooling. Its material is heat treated to withstand up to a million shots.

What are the advantages & disadvantages of production tooling?

Production tooling offers many advantages:

• Higher volume: Production toolings can produce a high volume of a part or assembly depending on their complexity.

• Repeatability: A significant number of manufactured parts will conform to specifications. And defects can be as low as 3.4 per million parts.

• Rapid fabrication process: The fabrication process time is cut short due to the simplicity of the process.

• Low production costs: The production cost is reduced due to the large number of produced parts which will decrease the cost per part.

But there are some disadvantages as well:

    -  Higher tooling cost: Production tooling cost is higher than prototype and bridge tooling due to the used material, treatment, and extra features such as a cooling system.

 - Long development time of tooling: Due to the complexity of the mold, the development time might be longer, thus the need for bridge tooling.

How is it fabricated?

The production injection molding process is made through four steps:

1. Plastification: The plastic granules are transferred from the hopper to the mold using a rotating screw and molted using heaters.

2. Injection: The screw will advance to increase pressure in the injection chamber to inject the molted plastic into the mold. The two cavities are maintained close until the plastic solidifies

3. Cooling: After injection, the molted plastic will be cooled down to become solid using a cooling circuit. The screw will hold its position to hold the pressure inside the mold.

4. Ejection: After the molted plastic solidifies using a cooling circuit, the Die is opened, and the part is ejected via ejector pins. The screws will retreat to prepare for the next injection.

Obtaining a fully functional part might require extra processing for features that can’t be made with the Production tooling process, such as taping. The designed part should follow Production tooling design guidelines.
