Standard Mold Classifications
Standard molds are defined by the Plastics Industry Association (formerly known as the Society of Plastics Industry or SPI). These mold standards are categorized into five classifications to guide quotes and orders into uniform mold types:
|Classification||Cycles||Level of Production||Uses||Investment|
|Class 101 Mold||1 million or more||Extremely high||Extremely high production and fast cycle times||Class 101 molds are the highest priced and made with only the highest quality materials|
|Class 102 Mold||Not exceeding 1 million||Medium to high||Good for parts with abrasive materials and/or tight tolerances||Class 102 molds are fairly high priced and made with materials of high quality|
|Class 103 Mold||Not exceeding 500,000||Medium||A very popular mold for low to medium production parts||Class 103 molds fall within common price ranges|
|Class 104 Mold||Not exceeding 100,000||Low||Good for limited-production parts with non-abrasive materials||Class 104 molds fall within low to moderate price ranges|
|Class 105 Mold||Not exceeding 500||Very low||Prototype only||Class 105 molds are built inexpensively to produce a very limited number of product prototypes|
