Mold Design for Precision Injection Molding
The design of high-precision injection molded parts and the associated molds is complex. If the component is also to fulfill optical functions, special know-how is required. Only if the design rules are adhered to and at the same time all specifications for achieving optical quality are taken into account, will functioning mold concepts be created.
With us, part and mold design are in the hands of one team. This ensures the transfer of all relevant information and knowledge. Modern design and simulation software supports fundamental decisions, for example on the choice of gating system, mold temperature control, molded part output and molded part separation. We use filling simulations to analyze critical issues, optimize processes and make our customers' projects even more cost-effective.

Mold making for optical applications
To ensure that injection molds can withstand maximum mechanical stresses, the choice of the right materials, modern machining methods and, above all, the experience of highly qualified mold mechanics are essential. And in the field of plastic optics, additional skills are required: To produce the optically effective surfaces, the high-precision mold inserts must meet the highest requirements for dimensional accuracy and surface quality. Manufacturing them is one of VIAOPTIC's core competencies. By means of submerged-arc machining such as turning, milling, flycutting and planing in up to four machining axes, free-form surfaces, finest linear and microstructures are introduced into the optical inserts.
From prototype tools to 2K series tools, we offer a wide range of tool options. Professional storage, maintenance and servicing guarantee a long service life and maximum performance.
