At YuanCheng Mold, a bucket mould usually costs between US$5,000 and US$20,000. Very large or complex moulds can cost more.
In this blog post, we will break down the key influencing factors of bucket moulds and teach you tips and tricks to navigate the price fluctuations of bucket moulds.
Every aspect of a bucket mould, from the design of the product, to the manufacture of the mould, to the choice of supplier, affects the price of a bucket mould. Below, we have selected some of the key factors that influence the price of a bucket mould.
1：Bucket mould design
The design and complexity of a bucket mould can play a role in determining its price. In general, bucket moulds with complex shapes, angles or features require higher costs. This is because mould suppliers take longer to produce and require more skills to create.
2：Bucket mould material
The material of the bucket mould can greatly affect the price of the bucket mould. As we all know, injection moulds can be made from different materials, such as steel and aluminium. Usually, mould steel is the preferred material. This is because it gives your bucket mould a longer life and is more durable. But it is more expensive than aluminium.
3：Bucket mould dimensions
As we all know, the larger the size of the mould, the more expensive the corresponding price is.
Last but not least, the choice of supplier for the bucket mould. We all know that a good mould supplier can produce a higher quality, more precise mould. This is crucial for our later manufacturing.
Bucket mould costs: is it worth paying more for quality?
The answer is a resounding YES.
While it may be tempting to choose the cheapest option to save on production costs, the long-term benefits of investing in high-quality bucket dies are undeniable.
Firstly, high-quality bucket moulds offer excellent durability and can guarantee more shots. There is also a greater saving on repair or replacement costs in the later stages of maintenance. So, in the long run, saving you money.
In addition, higher-quality bucket moulds offer better precision in the moulding process. Allowing your plastic products to be better rendered with every detail and nuance. This moulding precision adds value to your product.
Finally, high-quality barrel moulds usually have better after-sales support from the mould manufacturer. This means that if you experience any problems with your moulds, you can get expert guidance and support to enable you to get back up and run faster.
In short, investing in a high-quality bucket mould is certainly worthwhile.
Navigating bucket mould price fluctuations: tips and tricks
Fluctuations in the price of moulds are inevitable, but there are ways to plan for them.
1: Development of the relationship with the injection mould maker
When navigating price fluctuations, it pays to have a strong relationship with a barrel mould manufacturer. By working with a trusted manufacturer, you may be able to get better prices and faster delivery times.
2: Consider alternative materials
As mentioned earlier, the cost of raw materials plays an important role in the price of bucket moulds. This can be achieved by considering alternative materials, such as composite materials. However, when exploring alternative materials, the quality of the final bucket mould must be considered.
3: Monitoring the market
We need to regularly check industry trends and always be prepared for potential price increases or decreases.
