We collected some previous questions about bucket molds from several customers. Below are some typical FAQs.

The purpose of a bucket mold in injection moulding is to shape molten plastic or other materials into a bucket product. Bucket dies typically consist of two halves that fit together, with cavities designed to form the desired shape as the material is injected and cooled.

Injection molding is a cost-effective method of mass-producing buckets with little or no labor. The mold can be reused, ensuring consistent quality and reducing production time. Overall, bucket mold plays a vital role in injection molding, transforming raw materials into high-quality finished buckets.

The production of buckets and other moulded plastic products relies on a mold.

To create these items, plastic is melted and poured into a mold, where it cools and takes on the shape of the mold. Without mould, manufacturers could not mass-produce specific shapes and designs. In addition, moulds can be used multiple times, allowing for efficient and cost-effective production. Molds are also essential in creating specialized designs or imprints on plastic items, adding functionality and visual appeal.

In short, a mould is crucial for efficiently producing buckets and other moulded plastic products.

Creating a custom bucket mold requires careful planning and precision execution.

The first step is to gather all necessary specifications, such as the bucket’s dimensions and desired design elements. From there, our experienced designers will create a CAD drawing for the mold. This process typically takes 1-2 weeks, depending on the complexity of the design. Once the client approves the drawing, it’s time to begin machining the mould using high-quality industrial equipment.

The actual machining process can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks, depending on the design’s complexity. Our team closely monitors progress throughout this process to ensure that we meet all quality standards and deliver a top-notch final product.

Altogether, creating a custom bucket mold usually takes 4-6 weeks from start to finish.

At YC Mold, we specialize in producing high-quality bucket molds in a variety of sizes.

Whether you need one mould or one hundred, our team can work with you to meet your needs and fulfill your order efficiently.

bucket mould guide

Parts of a typical bucket mold

Bucket molds are made up of several different parts. Let’s see what these parts are and what is the function of each part. 

  • Gate

The gate is the part of the mould that controls molten plastic flow into the cavity. The gate is usually located on the perimeter of the mold and can be either opened or closed. The type of gate to use depends on the shape of the bucket.

  • Cavity

The cavity is where the actual moulded part is created. It’s made of two halves that fit together snugly, similar to a clamshell. When molten plastic material is injected into the cavity, it takes on the shape of the cavity and solidifies once it cools down. 

  • Sprue

The sprue is the passage that connects the gate to the cavity. Its primary purpose is to guide molten plastic material into the runner system. 

  • The runner system 

The runner system is a network of channels that transport molten plastic material from the sprue to the cavities of the mould. The runner system typically consists of two parts: cold and hot runners. Cold runners are made out of materials that can’t withstand high temperatures. As a result, they’re only used for low-volume production runs. On the other hand, hot runners are made out of heat-resistant materials such as steel or nickel alloys. They can be used for high-volume production runs because they can remain at high temperatures without being damaged. The runner helps to evenly distribute the plastic throughout the bucket mold and prevents forming of air pockets.

The use of hot runner sprues for the production of plastic buckets has the following advantages

1: No mould rise, mould clamping, overflow, gapping, etc.

2: Uniform wall thickness of the finished barrel, deviation <0.04mm.

3: High finished product rate, up to 99% or more.

4: Shorter forming cycle.

5: Increased strength. Empty barrels can be dropped from a height of 20 metres without breaking, and filled with water and lifted to a height of 1 metre without breaking or cracking.

6: Cost reduction.

  • The ejector system 

The ejector system is responsible for removing the molded bucket from the cavity once it has cooled down and solidified. The ejector system typically consists of an ejector pin connected to an ejector plate. The ejector pin pushes against the back side of the molded bucket while the ejector plate pulls it away from the front side. This action causes the molded bucket to be ejected from the cavity so that it can be removed from the mould altogether.
