Tell us about the control of mold cost. First of all, mold cost is the sum of mold material cost + processing cost + labor cost + tax. What are the effective ways to reduce mold cost? There are five ways: you may find it a bit confusing here. What is the relationship between product design and mold cost? You see, this foot first kicks cost calculation to mold room. If product design It's unreasonable. It's really a disaster. Sometimes in order to realize the inversion of the product, and the product engineer and the mold designer do not communicate well, the cost of the mold will multiply.
1. Product design changes sometimes encounter a project. The mold has just been designed and the mold frame has been ordered back. The customer's change notice comes. If it's a small change, it doesn't affect the overall structure of the mold. Sometimes it's more serious. Because the product shape changes, the mold needs to increase the structure, and even the mold frame needs to be reordered, which increases the cost.
2. Whether the mold design is perfect or not can be divided into two situations for the mold manufacturer. One is the rationality and perfection of the mold design. Mold design is very important. This is divided into engineers who are not very experienced. If they can design high-level molds, they can minimize the cost caused by unreasonable mold design by considering the details. Now there are many simulation methods, such as mold flow analysis, dynamic analysis of mold structure, three-dimensional comparative analysis of test products and design products, which are the standards to check whether an engineer is qualified.
3. Try to reduce the number mode of many mold enterprises. The calculation and processing of mold is the number of days when a qualified mold factory receives an order to calculate the process cost. Assuming that the mold can't be used after repeated tests, except as agreed, the more days the mold is in the factory, the processing cost. Of course, the cost of mold testing is quite considerable, so the often or uncontrollable number of mold testing is a big blind spot of mold cost control.
4. Stable and reputable suppliers shall be selected for the procurement of mold materials and standard parts. If because covet cheap, buy carelessly and cause mould problem, that is very regrettable. In fact, there are many. Although the supplier can be held responsible, the biggest loss is still the mold enterprise and mold users.
