Mold Making Processes
Mold-making is a complex process that requires a high level of skill and experience. Although every case is different, a typical order for a set of molds might look like this:
As soon as the customer confirms the order of molds, we will start to do an initial analysis of the parts to get an idea of the part line, gate positions, etc.
Mold Design And Mold Flow Analysis
The second step involved the use of predictive modeling software, which allowed us to understand how the molten material would behave as it entered the mold, allowing us to further improve the design.
CNC Machining And EDM
We make the first molds using high-quality machining equipment, with the plastic, steel, aluminum, etc. chosen by the customer.
With the newly made molds, we make a T1 sample to have a clear vision of how the customer’s final molded parts will turn out.
Improvement if Necessary
Based on our analysis of the T1 sample, we review the mold design and make any adjustments needed.
Commence Production And Shipping
We manufacture the molds in accordance with the final specifications before shipping them to the customer.
Types of Molds We are Offering
|Picture||Making Mold Process||Description|
|Plastic Injection Mold||Plastic injection molds are aluminum or steel molds used to make parts from a wide range of plastics, including nylons, acrylics, elastomers, and reinforced materials like glass-filled polyamide. Custom plastic molds can last between 100,000 and 1,000,000 shots.|
|Metal Injection Mold||Metal injection molding (MIM) is a form of injection molding where a metal and binder mix is used as feedstock. A metal injection mold is usually made from tool steel to withstand the metal injection, but we can also use aluminum.|
|Die Casting Mold||Unlike many prototyping specialists, we can provide metal casting molds (and a low-volume casting service through our partners). These molds — typically made from hardened steel — can be used to make parts from aluminum, zinc, magnesium and other non-ferrous metals.|
|Investment Casting Mold||We can make low-cost investment casting molds by 3D printing a wax pattern and surrounding it with ceramic. Ceramic molds can make metal cast parts from aluminum, zinc, magnesium, stainless steel, and more.|
|Extrusion Mold||Our metal die molds can be used for aluminum extrusions of alloys like 6061 and 6063. We also make molds for plastic extrusions of materials like polystyrene, nylon, polypropylene and polythene.|
|Sheet Metal Mold||Our experience making sheet metal molds for stamping and bending allows us to create sheet metal prototypes.|
Our Making Mold Projects
NOBLE is a professional mold manufacturing company in China, providing a wide range of prototype molds and production molds for most production methods, such as plastic injection molding, metal injection molding, high-pressure die casting, metal casting, aluminum extrusion, and sheet metal. With our strong engineer and manufacturing team, we have successfully produced 10K+ molds and delivered 2 million+ parts to our customers.
This is a 4 cavities mold we made for PU glasses injection molding. To protect people from being infected during the critical time. We finish the mold within 10 days instead of 4 weeks.
|Protect Glasses Mold||This is a 4 cavities mold we made for PU glasses injection molding. To protect people from being infected during this critical time. We finish the mold within 10 days instead of 4 weeks.|
|Big Car Component Mold||One of our advantages is we are able to make large size of molds from our CNC and EDM machines, and get the moldings done from our 1500 ton molding machines.|
|Reflector Mold Core||To get the best result of optical parts from injection molding process, it is important to achieve high gloss mold core from High Speed CNC Machining directly, instead of hand polishing.|
See What Our Customers Say About Us
Every quarter, we order about 20 plastic cases for our equipment from NOBLE. The enclosure was initially cast in urethane, but Kevin told me about the idea of using aluminum molds, which got me a few hundred molds. We decided to turn to this process. The T1 samples weren't good enough as we had some shrinkage marks, but when we received the T2 samples, that was sorted out quickly.
While we had to invest more in molds, we are now saving 70% over casting with polyurethane, and we can use UV-resistant ABS to keep the color stable. In general, I am delighted with this solution, NOBLE's suggestion is very good, and the optimized design scheme saves a lot of costs.
Mark Alford ---- Chief Engineer
From the instant and accurate quotation to the production process to the timely delivery of parts, NOBLE responded to our demands with complete professionalism.They handled every aspect of this CNC machining project quickly and cost-effectively.We will surely work with them again in the future.
Hari Mackenzie ---- Engineer
We asked NOBLE to fabricate parts for a critical supplier demo, and you came through with a short lead time.Your work is always high quality, and we are grateful for your precision in machining components.The help in checking our designs and material selection has also saved our company from making expensive errors.We look forward to doing future projects with you guys.
Devin W --- Vice President
I worked with another Chinese machine shop for eight years, and while the relationship was initially great, I eventually became disappointed by quality issues, late delivery, and a complete lack of communication.So I decided to give NOBLE a chance with a small order.Not only did they deliver on schedule, but they also did it with 100% accuracy and attention to detail.It was the same with my next order.They have exceeded all my expectations: they are a pleasure to work with; they respond to my inquiries by the next day (often within hours) and do whatever it takes to meet my requirements.This is what working with a machine shop should be like.

Mold Making FAQ
What is mold making and when do you need it?A
Molds are normally created to duplicate plastic and metal parts. After testing the prototypes and the market, it is the most cost-efficient way to launch your products on a scale.
Should I choose to make molds locally or export them?A
Generally speaking, it is cheaper to make plastic or metal molds in China than in other countries. But shipping costs should also be considered: if you are pressed for time, you need to use air freight; sea freight is much cheaper, but usually takes 40 days or more.
How long does a mold last?A
A well-made, fully hardened steel mold may be used for up to a million shots or injections, depending on the mold shape and injection material. Aluminum molds are less durable, which is good for short-run production with a tight schedule.
Can molds be in any shape?A
Molding designs should avoid sharp corners, inconsistent wall thicknesses, and other features that restrict material flow.
When do I need full automatic mold?A
Whatever you decide to use, in the end, what is the best cost-efficient way to get your parts done at the required quality is the key.
What are the typical tolerances for injection molded parts?A
Tolerances are very important and if not properly specified and controlled, assemblies will fail. NOBLE uses the ISO 2068-c standard for injection molding tolerances unless tighter tolerances are required.
How long does it take to make molded parts?A
After placing an order, it takes about 35 days for mold design and production, and 3-10 days for molded parts production.
8.How much does your injection molding service cost?A
Generally, we generate the quote after our platform must have considered several factors, including the size of the component, mold complexity, number of injection cavities, materials, post-processing needs, etc.
