Storage basket moulds have become one of the more popular injection moulds in the injection moulding industry in recent years.

Storage baskets are widely used in everyday life, such as shopping baskets, food baskets, storage baskets etc.
At YuanCheng Mold, we have experienced engineers and designers. In this case study, we focused on storage basket mould design.
In this case project, our technical designers followed a strict project management approach in the design, development and manufacturing discussions. We look forward to providing our customers with the best possible solution.
Next, we discuss various aspects, such as the design of the storage basket, the design of the mold gate, the ejector system, and the cooling system.
Storage basket mould design points
The storage basket should be designed to be as light and strong as possible. As shown in Figure 1, the storage basket we have designed consists mainly of a basket and a lid.
The pattern of the basket has been treated to resist deformation in order to prevent bending or warping.
Choosing the right injection moulding material for the storage basket mould
The plastic material will have a major impact on the strength, durability and finish of the basket. In this case, we used PP material, which effectively ensures the shape and weight of the storage basket.
Injection sprue for the storage basket mould
The pouring system is responsible for the flow of plastic in the mould and it affects the final quality of the storage basket. Designers carefully plan the pouring system to ensure a balanced flow of plastic to all parts of the mould. This allows the baskets to maintain a consistent wall thickness and prevents any defects that may occur.

Optimising the design of the storage basket mould
Prior to production, we optimise the design of the storage basket mould. The 3 main factors to consider are the size, shape and thickness of the basket. Ensure that the mould is well-designed to prevent any warping, deformation or other problems that may occur during the production process.

Cooling system for storage basket moulds
The cooling system is essential for obtaining high quality storage baskets. In this case, our designers wanted to ensure that the cooling system was correctly integrated with the mould design to avoid any warping, distortion or other problems that might occur.
