Unscrewing Molding

Unscrewing Molds are used to produce parts with internal or external threads, such as:

  • Nuts and Bolts
  • Sprinkler Heads
  • Bottle Caps & Closures
  • Personal Care /Cosmetics
  • Medical/Pharmaceutical
  • Consumer Goods
  • Automotive Parts

American Technical Molding employs the latest technology to maximize the performance of unscrewing molds when injection molding of threaded plastic parts is required.

Unscrewing Molding: Careful Handling Required to Avoid Damage to Threading

Some plastic parts have detailed threading molded into them.

  • These parts cannot be removed using standard knock-off methods
  • After they are molded, parts need to be carefully unscrewed from mold to avoid damaging the threads

Unscrewing Molds: High Speed Equals Low Cost

Unscrewing molds need to move at high speeds for the process to be cost-effective. The injection molding machinery needs to clear previously molded parts efficiently and then begin the next cycle.

American Technical Molding unscrewing molding equipment provides the speed and productivity to produce threaded plastic parts economically.
