Mold Base


New member
I would be grateful if any body can give me more information about different moldbase types and when should each type of them used. Types of moldbase could be found in DME sites for example but when and how each of them used is my main concern, so I can orderthe appropraite type for different mold situation. Information, web sites, books...etc would be deeply appreciated knowing that I am not mold designer expert.

Thanks in advance

right on the finger tips I have now ... DME, DMS, HASCO, Futaba, and of course are many others.

My personal recomendation is:

the mould base generaly is after client specification (end user). and after that will be the mould-maker. Any mouldmaker has during time his own trusted supplier.

Right now, personaly I use DME components on custom mould bases.

for any more questions write me on privat.




Hi Khalid

There is a lot of things to consider about mold base. First of all u must final your design, check about sliders, return pins etc etc and check the space given in the drawing of mold base manufacturer.
