Flashless molding refers to the manufacturing of parts, which have no excess flash or do not require any secondary processes to produce the finish product. Typically parts that are designed to be flashless will be run in a fully automatic process.

Criteria of Flashless Molds:

  • Choice of steel
  • Design
  • Heat transfer distribution
  • Location & hardness of keys
  • Size & choice of cams
  • Control of wearing parts in mold
  • Reduction of thickness of MP
  • Clamping land, P/L release
  • Horizontal Parting Lines
  • Mold weight reduction
  • Manufacturing Process
  • No over machining
  • Cutting parameters
  • Stress relief process
  • Heat treatment
  • Fitting & Tuning
