B. Three plate Mold
Three plate mould is a mold which has a runner plate in between moving half and fixed half. The runner exists between the runner plate and the fixed half as shown in Fig.24. The cavity is located in between the runner plate and moving half of the mold. Pin-point gates typically locate at the middle of the plastic part, away from its edge. satisfying the aesthetic requirement and eliminating the process tot cutting off the gates.
A three plate mold has the following features:
1.Its gates can be located at the middle of the plastic part.
2.It allows pin point gates.
3.It may eliminate cutting off the gates manually, when pin-point gates or submarine gates are used.
4.It has to take out both tile part and the runner respectively.
5.The injection molding machine should have sufficient mold opening distance.
6.It has a complex structure, more problematic and less durable.
7.It carries a higher mold cost than two plate mould.
8.It has a longer molding cycle than two plate mould.
