A Mould is divided into two parts (more for complex designs) so that it comes apart in order to remove the product and reuse it again and again. These two parts are, namely, Core and Cavity. While doing injection molding the cavity needs to be placed inside the core before pouring the molten plastic in. The line where these two parts meet is called the mold parting line. The component produced thus has a single continuous line around its perimeter. This line is usually visible […]
