2 plate mold refers to the mold that splits into a fixed half and a movable half when the mold opens.
A deviation of the two-plate mold, e.g. the addition of a spring board for control of mold opening sequence, to realize delayed opening via the slide and lifter mechanism, etc. For example, a spring is added between 5 and 6 in the Fig. shown, so that 5 and 6 open first during mold opening process. Another deviation of the two-plate mold – the product needs to be ejected from the mold core with a stripper plate. For example, a stripper plate is added between 4 and 5 in the Fig. shown on the previous page, so as to eject the product from the mold core.
