A new trend in the development of the plastic mold industry

At present, TV and display housings, air conditioner housings, and motorcycle plastic parts have adopted the method of advance development, that is, vigorously improve development capabilities and push the development work forward as far as possible until it is involved in the product development of mold users. Even developing before there is no clear user target, it turns passive to active. In addition, the development of mobile phone and telephone molds has also begun to try. This approach breaks the long-standing passive situation that mold factories can only wait for a contract to design molds according to user requirements.
With the improvement of the design and processing level of mold companies, mold manufacturing is changing from relying mainly on the skills of fitters in the past to relying mainly on technology. This is not only a change in the means of production, but also a change in the mode of production and a rise in concepts. This trend has led to the continuous improvement of the standardization of molds, higher and higher mold accuracy, shorter and shorter production cycles, and lower and lower proportion of fitters, which ultimately promoted the continuous improvement of the overall level of the mold industry. China's mold industry currently has more than 10 national high-tech enterprises and about 200 provincial and municipal high-tech enterprises.
In line with this trend, it is an inevitable requirement that the main backbone of the production of molds gradually changes from technical talents to technical talents. Of course, at present and for a long time, skilled talents are still very important, because after all, it is difficult for molds to completely get rid of the dependence on skills.
Mould enterprises and their mould production are rapidly developing towards informatization. In the information society, as a high-level modern mold company, the application of CAD/CAM is far from enough. At present, many companies have adopted technologies such as CAE, CAT, PDM, CAPP, KBE, KBS, RE, CIMS, ERP and other advanced manufacturing technologies and virtual network technologies, which are all manifestations of informationization. This trend towards informatization has become the consensus of the industry.
Not only the plastics industry needs to innovate, but also industries such as electronic and electrical waste disposal, solid waste recycling, scrap car recycling, and waste paper recycling all need to improve their independent innovation capabilities. It is not enough to improve its own internal strength. We must persist in using development methods to solve the problems in progress, change new development methods, cater to the trend, rely on innovation to drive development, develop in the direction of informatization, and accelerate the steady progress of the industry.
