Mold, various molds and tools used in industrial production for injection molding, blow molding, extrusion, die-casting or forging, smelting, stamping and other methods to obtain the required products. In short, a mold is a tool used to make molded articles. This tool is composed of various parts, and different molds are composed of different parts. It is known as "the mother of industry" because it can process the shape of goods by changing the physical state of the materials.
With the development of China's industrial manufacturing, after decades of accumulation of mold manufacturing technology, mold products are gradually applied to all walks of life, showing a development trend of synchronous development in depth and breadth. Under the background of the improvement of mold manufacturing technology and the increasingly fierce market competition, mold products are gradually widely used in transportation equipment mainly represented by automobiles, and light industrial products mainly represented by household appliances, consumer electronics and plastic products.
Application of mould in automobile industry
The development of automobile mold industry is closely related to the development of automobile industry. The steady and rapid development of automobile industry will greatly promote the development of automobile mold industry. Molds are consumables with a large amount of consumption. More than 90% of the parts in the automobile industry are molded by molds. At the same time, cold, hot and plastic molds are used. The average consumption of molds per 10000 vehicles is 0.12 tons. Generally speaking, it takes about 1500 molds to make an ordinary car, including nearly 1000 stamping molds and more than 200 interior parts molds.
According to the calculation of professional institutions, the market share of automobile mould industry is about 1 / 3, while according to the statistics of the National Bureau of statistics, the sales revenue of automobile mould in China in 2017 is 266.342 billion yuan, according to which the market scale of automobile mould in China in 2017 is estimated to reach 88.8 billion yuan. By 2023, China's automobile production will reach nearly 41.82 million, with an average annual growth rate of about 6.0%, and the demand for automobile molds will reach about 500 tons.
