Molds, various molds and tools used in industrial production to obtain the required products by methods such as injection molding, blow molding, extrusion, die-casting or forging molding, smelting, and stamping. In short, a mold is a tool used to make molded objects. This tool is composed of various parts, and different molds are composed of different parts. It mainly realizes the processing of the shape of the article by changing the physical state of the formed material, and is known as the "mother of industry".

With the development of industrial manufacturing in China, after decades of accumulation of mold manufacturing technology, mold products have gradually been applied to all walks of life, showing a development trend of simultaneous expansion in vertical and horizontal depth. In the context of the improvement of mold manufacturing technology and the increasingly fierce market competition, mold products are gradually being widely used in transportation equipment represented by automobiles, and light industrial products represented by household appliances, consumer electronics and plastic products.

The application of molds in the automotive industry

The development of the automotive mold industry is closely related to the development of the automotive industry. The steady and rapid development of the automotive industry will greatly promote the development of the automotive mold industry. Moulds are consumables with a large amount. More than 90% of the parts in the automobile industry are formed by moulds. Cold, hot and plastic moulds are used at the same time. The average consumption of moulds per 10,000 cars is 0.12 tons. Under normal circumstances, it takes about 1,500 molds to manufacture an ordinary car, among which there are nearly 1,000 stamping molds and more than 200 interior trim molds.

The application of molds in the consumer electronics industry

With the increasing consumption level of people, the demand for consumer electronic products continues to expand, product upgrading is accelerated, and the market scale of consumer electronic products continues to grow, while driving the rapid development of mold-related industries. The continuous growth of the scale of my country's electronic information industry has formed a relatively complete manufacturing system and industrial supporting foundation for product categories.


The application of molds in the home appliance industry

With the improvement of living standards, the demand for household appliances in my country has maintained steady and rapid development. my country's home appliance industry has formed a complete independent supporting system for parts and components, creating a complete upstream and downstream industrial chain. Most parts and components of home appliances rely on mold injection molding, and industrial clustering provides a good external environment for the formation of a linkage effect between the mold industry and the home appliance industry. Experts predict that with the gradual development of home appliance products in the direction of intelligence, personalization and light weight, the renewal and iteration speed of home appliances will accelerate significantly, and the home appliance industry market will continue to maintain a steady growth trend in the future.


Concluding remarks

The mold industry is a basic industry in the national economy. Among the seven strategic emerging industries, the high-end equipment manufacturing industry will be vigorously developed as a pillar industry of the national economy in the future, and the mold industry, the mother of modern industries, will benefit from the development of high-end equipment manufacturing and achieve rapid development.
