The Crate Mould is an industrial product that forms materials in a certain way in a specific structural form. It is also a production tool that can batch produce industrial product parts with certain shape and size requirements. Different crate moulds are made up of different parts. It is a technology to realize the shape processing of articles mainly by changing the physical state of the formed materials.

The manufacture of crate mould refers to the processing technology and maintenance of crate mould. Perhaps many people lack understanding of the mould and do not know what the mould is used for. In fact, it is not difficult. We know that any industrial product is manufactured by mould. For example, the mobile phone shell is produced by heating and softening plastic, injecting plastic mould for forming and cooling, and the car shell is stamped out by metal plate through cavity mould. Nowadays, the traditional production method of manually operating machines to process dies and parts is far from meeting the needs of the times for quality and efficiency. The high precision, high consistency and high productivity produced by dies are incomparable to any other processing method. The dies determine the quality, efficiency and new product development capability of products to a great extent.

The manufacture of Dustbin Mould(FURNITUREMOULD) refers to the processing of forming and blank making tools, in addition to shearing mould and dustbin mould. Usually, the dustbin mould consists of an upper mould and a lower mould. The steel plate is placed between the upper die and the lower die to form the material under the action of the press. When the press is opened, the workpiece determined by the shape of the dustbin die will be obtained or the corresponding waste material will be removed.

Basic characteristics:

(1) High machining accuracy requirements

A pair of moulds is generally composed of female mould, male mould and mould base, and some may be multi-piece modules. Therefore, the combination of upper and lower dies, the combination of insert and cavity, and the combination of modules all require high machining accuracy. The dimensional accuracy of precision dies often reaches μ m.

(2) Complex shape and surface

Some product-shaped surfaces are formed by combining various curved surfaces, so the cavity surface of the mould is very complicated. Some curved surfaces must be treated by mathematical calculation.

(3) Small batch size

Mould production is not mass production, in many cases, only one pair is produced.

(4) Many working procedures

Milling, boring, drilling, reaming, tapping and other processes are always used in the manufacturing of the die.

(5) Repeated production

The use of the mould has a long life. When the service life of a pair of moulds exceeds its service life, a new mould must be replaced, so the production of moulds is often repetitive.

(6) Profiling

Sometimes there is neither pattern nor data in the mould production, and copying processing must be carried out according to the actual objects. This requires high imitation precision and no deformation.

(7) Excellent mould materials and high hardness

The main materials of the mould are mostly made of high-quality alloy steel, especially high-life moulds, which are often made of Leroi steel such as Crl2 and CrWMn. This kind of steel has strict requirements from blank forging, processing to heat treatment. Therefore, the compilation of processing technology cannot be ignored even more. Heat treatment deformation is also a problem that needs to be taken seriously in processing.

According to the above-mentioned characteristics, the selection of machine tools should meet the processing requirements as much as possible. For example, the numerical control system has stronger functions, higher precision of machine tools, better rigidity, better thermal stability and profiling functions.

The working conditions of the Air Cooler Mould(FURNITUREMOULD) are different from those of the cold stamping mould. Generally, the air cooler mould must work at 150 C-200 C. Besides being subjected to certain pressure, it must also be subjected to temperature influence. The basic performance requirements of steel for air cooler mould are summarized as follows according to the use conditions and processing methods of air cooler mould:

1. Sufficient surface hardness and wear resistance

The hardness of the plastic mould is usually below 50-60 HRC. The heat-treated air cooler mould should have sufficient surface hardness to ensure sufficient rigidity of the air cooler mould. During the operation of the mould, due to the filling and flowing of plastic, the mould has to bear large compressive stress and friction force, which requires the mould to maintain the stability of shape accuracy and dimensional accuracy and ensure the mould has sufficient service life. The wear resistance of the mould depends on the chemical composition of the steel and the heat treatment hardness, so improving the hardness of the mould is beneficial to improving its wear resistance.

2. Excellent machinability

In addition to EMD processing, most air cooler mould to need certain cutting processing and fitter repair. In order to prolong the service life of cutting tools, improve cutting performance and reduce surface roughness, the hardness of steel used for air cooler mould must be appropriate.

3. Good polishing performance

For high-quality plastic products, the roughness value of the cavity surface is required to be small. For example, the surface roughness value of the injection mould cavity is required to be less than ra 0.1 ~ 0.25, while the optical surface is required to be ra < 0.01 nm. the mould cavity must be polished to reduce the surface roughness value. The steel materials selected for this purpose require fewer impurities, fine and uniform structure, no fibre directionality, and no pitting or orange peel defects during polishing.

4. Good thermal stability

The shape of air cooler mould parts is often complicated and difficult to process after quenching. It should try to choose the ones with good thermal stability. When the air cooler mould is formed and processed after heat treatment, the linear expansion coefficient is small, the heat treatment deformation is small, the dimensional change rate caused by temperature difference is small, the metallographic structure and the mould size are stable, and the processing can be reduced or stopped, thus ensuring the mould size accuracy and surface roughness requirements.

With the development of the plastic industry, the requirements for the complexity and precision of plastic products are getting higher and higher, and higher requirements are also put forward for mould materials. Pre-hardened steel (such as PMS), corrosion-resistant steel (such as PCR) and low-carbon maraging steel (such as 18Ni-250) can be used for manufacturing complex, precise and corrosion-resistant plastic moulds, all of which have better cutting, heat treatment and polishing properties and higher strength.

In the process of plastic melting and plasticizing, the Crate Mould(FURNITUREMOULD) is prone to defects. The solution is to reduce the quenching stress after heat treatment to a minimum, because the quenching stress and the mesh carbonized structure, under the action of grinding force, can easily crack the workpiece due to phase transformation of the structure. Reasonable use of cooling and lubricating fluid, play the three major roles of cooling, washing and lubrication, keep the cooling and lubricating clean, thus control the grinding heat within the allowable range, and prevent the thermal deformation of the workpiece.

Specific Operation of Processing Defects of Crate Mould:

1. Improve the cooling conditions during grinding, such as adopting oil impregnated grinding wheel or internal cooling grinding wheel and other measures. When cutting fluid is introduced into the center of grinding wheel, cutting fluid can directly enter grinding area to play an effective cooling role and prevent workpiece surface burns. Reasonable use of cooling and lubricating fluid, play the three major roles of cooling, washing and lubrication, keep the cooling and lubricating clean, thus control the grinding heat within the allowable range, and prevent the thermal deformation of the workpiece.

2. Reduce the quenching stress after heat treatment to the minimum, because under the action of grinding force, the quenching stress and reticular carbonized structure can easily cause cracks in the workpiece due to phase transformation of the structure. In order to eliminate the grinding residual stress of high precision dies, low temperature aging treatment should be carried out after grinding to improve toughness.

3. To eliminate grinding stress, the crate mould can also be immersed in salt bath at 260 ~ 315℃ for 1.5min, and then cooled in oil at 30℃, thus the hardness can be reduced by 1HRC and the residual stress can be reduced by 40% ~ 65%.

4. For precision grinding of precision dies with dimensional tolerance within 0.01mm, attention should be paid to the influence of ambient temperature and constant temperature grinding is required. From the calculation, it can be seen that when the temperature difference of 300mm long steel parts is 3℃, the material has a change of about 10.8μm (10.8=1.2×3×3, the deformation amount per 100mm is 1.2μm/℃). All finishing processes should fully consider the influence of this factor.

5. Electrolytic grinding is adopted to improve the manufacturing precision and surface quality of the crate mould. During electrolytic grinding, the grinding wheel scrapes off oxide film instead of metal, so the grinding force is small, the grinding heat is also small, no grinding burr, crack, burn and other phenomena will occur, and the general surface roughness can be better than Ra0.16μm; In addition, the abrasion of the grinding wheel is reduced. For example, when grinding hard alloy, the abrasion of the silicon carbide grinding wheel is about 400% ~ 600% of the weight of the hard alloy, while when electrolytic grinding is used, the abrasion of the grinding wheel is only 50% ~ 100% of the abrasion of the hard alloy.

The defects of most crate products are caused during the plasticizing and injection stages of the Crate Mould(FURNITUREMOULD), but sometimes they are also related to unreasonable design. The influencing factors include the type of injection port, the number of mould cavities, location and size, the design of the cold/hot runner system, and the structure of the product itself. Therefore, in order to avoid product defects caused by the design of the crate mould, we need to analyze the crate mould when making it.

After the test results of the crate mould, the operator usually needs to re-evaluate the specific conditions of the crate mould to avoid unnecessary cost and time in the process of modification. In most cases, in order to make up for the deficiencies in the die design of crates, the operator may make incorrect settings without knowledge, because the parameter setting range required to produce qualified products is very small, and any deviation in parameter setting may lead to the quality of the final products far beyond the allowable error range.

The purpose of the mould test of the crate mould is to find out the optimized technological parameters and the design of the crate mould. Not just to get a good sample. This is very important. Even if factors such as materials, machine settings or environments have changed, a stable and uninterrupted mass production environment can still be ensured.

The quality of the hot work of the Crate Mould(FURNITUREMOULD) has a significant impact on the performance and service life of the mould. In the actual life work, our mould shop requires the improvement of the design and production of various moulds, and there will be problems in the specific operation.

The quenching deformation and cracking of the working parts of the crate mould, and the early fracture of the use process are all related to the hot working process of the tool.

(1) Forging process, which is an important part of the manufacturing process of crate mould parts. For moulds of high alloy tool steels, technical requirements are often imposed on metallographic structures such as material carbide distribution. In addition, the forging temperature range should be strictly controlled, the correct heating specification should be established, the correct forging force method should be used, and the post-forging slow cooling or timely annealing should be carried out.

(2) Preparatory heat treatment. Pre-heat treatment processes such as annealing, normalizing or quenching and tempering should be used according to the materials and requirements of the crate mould working parts to improve the structure, eliminate the structural defects of the forged blank, and improve the processing technology. The high-carbon alloy dies steel can eliminate the reticulated secondary cementite or chain carbide after appropriate preliminary heat treatment, so that the carbide is spheroidized and refined, and the uniformity of carbide distribution is promoted. This is beneficial to ensure the quality of quenching and tempering and improve the life of the mould.

(3) Quenching and tempering. This is a key link in the heat treatment of crate mould. If the superheat occurs during quenching, not only will the workpiece cause greater brittleness, but also cause deformation and cracking during cooling, which seriously affects the life of the mould. Special care should be taken to prevent oxidation and decarburization during die quenching. The heat treatment process specification should be strictly controlled. Vacuum heat treatment can be used if conditions permit. After quenching, it should be tempered in time, and different tempering processes should be adopted according to technical requirements.

(4) Stress relief annealing. The working parts of the crate mould should be subjected to stress relief annealing after roughing, with the purpose of eliminating the internal stress caused by rough, so as to avoid excessive deformation and cracking caused by quenching. For moulds with high precision requirements, it needs to be subjected to stress-relieving and tempering after grinding or electric machining, which is beneficial to stabilize mould precision and improve service life.
