Mold Plate Sequencing

This is used to allow steel cores to be removed in sequence to allow for undercuts to flex out of the mold with out shearing. The proper sequence must take place so the designer has several methods for insuring the sequence. Below are listed some of the most common methods. There are also standard sequencing mechanisms available from the mold maker by venders. These mechanisms come with the correct steel choices and proper steel selection for maximum life.
