According to statistics, more than 90% of automotive parts need to rely on moulds for batch processing and manufacturing, including sheet metal parts, die casting parts, stamping parts, plastic parts, and so on. Generally speaking, in the development of a new car, more than 1,500 pairs of automotive stamping dies, more than 800 pairs of automotive plastic moulds, more than 300 pairs of sheet metal dies, and more than 100 pairs of die-casting moulds are required. With the rapid development of the automotive industry, automotive mould have become the most important part of the mould industry, and the scale of the industry has continued to expand. In the future, driven by the concept of lightweight automotives, the development of automotive plastic moulds will be effectively promoted. Tests have shown that for every 10% reduction in automotive mass, fuel efficiency can increase by 6-8%. And for every 100kg reduction in automotive mass, fuel consumption can be reduced by 0.3-0.6 liters per 100 kilometers. Plastic moulds are widely used due to their lighter weight.
At present, most automotive interior parts have been basically lightweight. The lightweight interior and exterior trim not only reduce the energy consumption of the entire automotive, but also, more importantly, increase safety and comfort. The application of plastic in automotives is being developed from interior trim to exterior trim, bodywork and structural parts. For example, Mercedes-Benz Smart, Lotus Elisey and Renault Espace have all adopted plastic bodywork. Overall, the use of plastics in the automotive sector is continuing to grow. The proportion of plastic moulds in total automotive moulds has exceeded 60%, accounting for about 10-15% of the total body mass.
