Our Mold and Tooling Production Capacity

At Zhongde, our custom injection molds are tailored to your unique project requirements, ensuring the success of your project. Our skilled team collaborates with you to understand your project’s nuances and develop precise plastic injection mold designs. With expertise in handling complexities, we deliver top-notch mold production services. We have the ability to provide various mold types to address the diverse needs of our clients. Our wide array of molds, including single cavity molds focused on precision, high-efficiency multi-cavity molds, and productivity-optimized family-cavity molds. Here are our mold types display. 

Based on the Number of Cavities

Single Cavity Mold

A mold that produces one part per molding cycle. It is often used for low-volume production or when each part requires individual attention.

Multi-Cavity Mold

A mold that contains multiple identical cavities, allowing for the production of multiple parts simultaneously in each molding cycle. It is commonly used for medium to high-volume production.

Family-Cavity Mold

A mold that produces multiple different parts in a single molding cycle. It is designed with multiple cavities, each producing a different part. Family molds are efficient for manufacturing parts with similar design characteristics.

Based on Processes

Injection Mold

A mold that used in the injection molding process to create plastic parts by injecting molten material into a mold cavity.

Compression Mold

A mold that Utilized in compression molding to shape materials by applying heat and pressure to the mold.

Insert Mold

A mold that contains inserts,  which are placed into the mold cavity before the molding process. They are commonly used in overmolding or insert molding.

Mold & Tooling Making Process

Zhongde specializes in creating custom injection molds tailored to your specific requirements. Our mold making process is designed to align with your unique design needs. Utilizing advanced predictive modeling software, we conduct thorough mold flow analysis to ensure precise and efficient mold tooling production. From prototype development to sample inspection and timely delivery, we provide comprehensive technical support to meet your expectations.

Design and Engineering

The process begins with the design and engineering of the mold.

CNC Machining

Mold design becomes CAM program, guiding CNC machines for precise mold component fabrication.

Surface Finishing

The mold surfaces are carefully finished through processes to ensure the desired surface characteristics and functionality.


The mold components are meticulously assembled.

Testing and Adjustment

The completed mold undergoes thorough testing and adjusting to ensure proper fit, functionality, and dimensional accuracy.

Sample Production

Produce sample parts to verify the mold's performance, part quality, cycle time, and production feasibility.

Zhongde's Injection Mold Materials Selection

The choice of material for mold tooling is crucial in determining the durability and quality of injection molds. Zhongde offer a wide selection of materials tailored to different stages of product development. Our experienced team selects materials carefully to ensure precise dimensions and excellent aesthetics. We also provide expert guidance and advice on choosing the right mold material.

cnc machining metal materials

The common injection mold materials are as below:

  • Steel: Steel is a popular choice for mold-making. Common steel materials used for molds include tool steel (such as P20, H13) and stainless steel (such as 420 and 316).


  • Aluminum: Aluminum molds are suitable for rapid prototyping and low-volume production. They are less expensive than steel molds but have a shorter lifespan.


  • Copper Alloy: Copper alloys are often used for molds that require high heat transfer, such as in plastic injection molding.


  • Silicone: Silicone molds are commonly used for casting flexible or intricate parts. They offer excellent flexibility and easy part release.

Compare the Mold Materials

The selection of mold materials depends on the production volume and the budget. Here is a comparison between the materials. We choose the materials based on the specific requirements.

FAQs of Mold and Tooling Production

Generally, mold production can range from a few weeks to a few months. That is depending on the complexity and size of the mold, and the specific requirements of the project.

Yes, existing molds can be modified or repaired. But the feasibility and details of modifications or repairs would be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

The number of parts that can be produced from a single mold depends on the mold material, the part design, and the maintenance and care of the mold. With proper maintenance and care, molds can typically produce thousands to hundreds of thousands of parts.

Yes, as an on-demand manufacturer, we can provide samples or prototypes to evaluate the mold design and functionality. And you make any necessary adjustments before mass production.

The total cost of mold production can vary depending on factors such as mold design, size, material, and any additional services or features required. To provide an accurate cost estimate, we would need specific details about the project requirements and design specifications.
