Cold Vs. Hot Runner Molds: Which Is Better For Your Plastic Parts?
Plastic molding parts in equipment are being used, from the automotive industry to the medical field, and even in construction. Generally, these parts are made by using an injection molding process—one of the fastest and most accurate ways to manufacture plastic component.
Two different types of molding systems can be used in the Plastic Injection molding process—cold runner molds and hot runner molds. Each Plastic molding method works when a plastic material flows from the spruce into the runner system, and then through a gate into the mold cavity. So, when considering cold vs. hot runner molds, which is better? Both systems have their advantages and disadvantages. Understanding the way each system works will help you decide which process is better for making the plastic parts you need.
