Though the two types of presses have similar methods, horizontal presses are much more commonly used. This was developed earlier on, and therefore is found in more industries. However, this does not necessarily make it the better option. A company who chooses to distinguish itself by providing vertical molding machines could have the competitive advantage in the industry and provide a quality product. The two types are similar in the horizontal path where the injection unit is found. However, the vertical option is unique in that it provides an opening on the vertical path of the mold.
Clamping Force and Shot Size
Two huge factors that play a major role in the quality of a product formed by insert molding is clamping force– the amount of pressure required to keep the mold and product closed during the injection process– and shot size—the amount of molten plastic required in the injection process of the mold. In most cases, the vertical molding option will provide a much more efficient means with these two factors in mind.
