Mould is an important process equipment for forming various
industrial products, and a means of forming blanks or parts in
mechanical manufacturing industry. It plays an important role in
modern industrial production, mainly in the following aspects.
(1) Technology of moulding products is widely used. For example:
die forgings, stamping parts, extrusion and drawing parts are all
plastic deformation and forming of metal materials in mould; die
castings and powder metallurgy parts are also filled and pressed in
mould; plastic, ceramics and other non-metallic materials products
are mostly processed and formed by mould.
(2) Mould forming parts can be processed with less and no cutting.
Less and no cutting is a direction of development of mechanical
manufacturing. Mould forming is the way to achieve less and no
cutting technology, and improvement of level of mould manufacturing
is key to achieve less and no cutting. Improvement of die
manufacturing level can improve precision of moulded products and
reduce roughness value, so it is possible to directly process
finished products without further finishing, thus avoiding cutting.
(3) Mold forming has characteristics of high quality, high yield,
low consumption and low cost, so it has a wide range of
applications. According to relevant statistics, various parts and
components manufactured by moulds account for 60%-70% in fields of
airplanes, automobiles, electrical appliances and meters, more than
80% in household appliances, and 85% in light industrial products
such as watches and bicycles.
Development of modern industrial products and improvement of
technological level largely depend on development level of mould
industry, so mould industry will play an increasingly important
role in the development of national economy and society. Weakness
of mould industry will seriously affect change of industrial
product shape and development of new products. Level of mould
manufacturing and quality of die play a decisive role in accuracy,
margin, productivity, cost and utilization of advanced equipment.
