Most people who have used the industrial MFC process know that it is a reliable approach to making plastic products with a high level of detail. They are manufactured with accuracy, high-quality parts, and great attention. Here are some pointers to help you get started with the process.

1. Build Proper Mold Design

The most crucial aspect of your MFC process is mold design. Your mold will often be the difference between a good and a bad product. A proper mold design is vital for an effective and profitable production process. A good mold should be able to tolerate high pressures and temperatures while remaining flexible enough to allow for simple production. This makes it easier for manufacturers to use them in their machines, allowing them to create more components per hour while incurring less labor and material costs (which translates to higher profits).

2. Draft Angle

The draft angle is the angle at which the mold surface meets the cavity. It facilitates the removal of the molded part as well as the installation of parts when they are assembled into your new part holders or jigs.
Draft angles are typically between 2 and 5 degrees, but there may be some variance based on your application requirements. For example, if you’re manufacturing precision components that require tighter tolerances than most other devices can provide, you’ll want to use a higher draft angle so that there is less room for error during production processes such as machining or assembly operations. It is always recommended to discuss the draft angle in detail when hiring injection mold services before production. This way it can happen faster without any problems occurring such as porosity.

3. Polished Mold Finish

The surface of a part that has been polished is referred to as a polished mold finish. The term is frequently used in combination with polished or rough cast iron, though there are some exceptions.
Polishing usually results in a high-gloss surface on molds. This is especially true if you employ an abrasive in your molding processes, such as ITW D-6 or HSM-10S. However, if you do not have access to these products or want more control over the amount of gloss on your molded parts, sandblasting may be necessary instead of wet sanding. 
However, this method can cause a number of issues including poor surface quality due to resins being displaced during sandblasting. This affects their durability and creates dust clouds around workers while they work near these machines. They can also pose health risks such as breathing problems caused by inhaling these particles.

4. Undercuts

Undercuts are areas in the mold that cannot be fully filled with plastic. Filling can be difficult, and the finished section may have undercuts that need to be filled separately. If you’re working with a multi-component material, this will happen if one of the components is underfilled.
Undercuts are an important feature of industrial MFC processes because they allow for quicker removal from tooling and shorter production rates, which can result in significant cost savings over traditional manufacturing methods.

There are many ways to start an industrial MFC process, but the most important thing is to ensure you have a proper design. The more detailed your draft angle, the better your machine will run. We hope this article has given you some helpful tips on how to create a top-notch mold design so that when it’s time for production, you can count on it being perfect!
