Single-face Molds are the simplest form of a mold. A mold level or face, is defined as the parting line dividing the core and cavity sides of a tool. The more cavities per face increase the number of parts per cycle, thus increasing the productivity of a mold/ machine system. The number of cavities on each face is driven by either machine tonnage or tie bar spacing availability. Mold ejection functions are usually tied to the machine’s knockout functions, and/or combined with machine logic functions.
Some of the benefits of Single-face Molds are their convertibility optional design to two or more levels and their applicability to any product type market application.
