What Mold Apprentices Need to Learn for Beginners

Understand what molds are, their role in industrial production, and the inability to produce industrial product components with specific shape and size requirements without molds. one

Learn the machine operations required for mold manufacturing. Including lathes, grinders, drilling machines, and wire cutting machines. These skills are the foundation for becoming a qualified mold worker.

Learn basic design software such as CAD. For molds with simple structures and fewer surfaces, CAD can be learned. For molds with complex structures and many curved surfaces, it is necessary to learn more advanced design software, such as PRO/E, UG, Mastercam, Solidworks, etc.

Learn professional books related to mold processing. Books such as "Mold Design and Manufacturing" and "Practical Mechanical Processing Technology Manual" can help apprentices gain a deeper understanding of professional knowledge in mold design and manufacturing.

Learn professional positions related to mold processing. Such as milling machines, grinding machines, lathes, wire cutting, electric sparks, CNC machines, polishing, etc. These positions usually do not require a deep understanding of mold technology, but require the ability to understand drawings and perform manual operations. two

Learn CNC programming. This is a learning direction for CNC operators. Learning to operate the machine first is very helpful for subsequent learning of programming. Generally, after operating the computer for about half a year, software learning will also be completed, and at this time, one can choose to become a programmer.

Generally speaking, apprentices in mold factories need to study for at least one year, while in the mold industry, the learning time varies for different professions, and some may take up to three years.
