Cap injection molding is an efficient manufacturing process for producing plastic caps. If you are interested in the process of producing plastic bottle caps and cap injection molding, but don’t know how much it costs? YuanCheng Mold will give you the answer.
In this blog post, we will introduce you to the potential factors that affect the costs associated with injection molding of caps: from cap mold making to molding.
At YuanCheng Mold, the cost of bottle cap injection moulding is divided into two parts. One part is the cost of manufacturing the bottle cap mould
and the other part is the cost of plastic injection moulding.
The cost of the bottle cap mould
The average price of a bottle cap mould ranges from US$3,000 to US$50,000. This depends mainly on a number of factors.
The size of the cap mould
The larger your cap mould is designed to be, the higher the corresponding cost.
The number of cavities in the cap mould
Generally, the more cavities your cap mould has, the more it will cost. At YuanCheng Mold, we offer 8, 16, 32, 48, 64 and 96 cavities for your bottle cap moulds.
Types of plastics used in bottle cap moulds
Generally, we would recommend HDPE
and PP to our cap mould users. Both of these materials are in high demand in the market for their applications. Of course, if you have a need for other plastics for your caps, we can also offer the manufacture of customised cap moulds. But the cost will be slightly higher.
Cost of bottle cap injection moulding
The average price of bottle cap injection moulding ranges from US$10,000 – US$100,000. It depends largely on the size of your cap production, the type of plastic used, the plastic moulder you are looking for and other factors.
7: Process optimisation and automation
Process optimisation and automation technologies, such as robotics and automated processes, reduce labour input and help to significantly reduce overall production costs.
8: Temperature control
Finally, temperature control is essential at all stages of the cap injection moulding process. It has a very important impact on the quality of the final bottle cap. Accurate control of temperature helps to ensure consistency from batch to batch of caps, which further adds to the cost savings.
Bottle cap injection moulding is a complex process with many variables affecting its total cost. Understanding each of these variables can help you keep your cap prices competitive, while still producing high quality caps, and YuanCheng Mold gives you full consideration of each factor to increase the benefits of your next cap injection molding project.
