Molding is the process of manufacturing net shaped components via injection or compression pressure into a mold cavity. Various cores, pin and slides enable complex geometries to be achieved. Tools are constructed out of a variety of base materials including tool steel and stainless steel depending on the processing temperatures and relative abrasiveness of the injected materials. Prototype tools may be produced out of aluminum in some instances as well. The tooling cost of a specific process is driven by the number of cavities, complexity of the runner or gating systems, dimensional part requirements, requirement of mold cooling lines in some materials as well as part geometry.
