France's mold is characterized by fully automated molding, such as France in the segmentation of the industry's mold, as far as possible, the use of hot runners (hot nozzles) into the glue, or dive, banana (bullhorn) into the water, all the water outlet must be automatically cut off, automatically fall off. According to the size and structural characteristics of the products, the French mold adopts the design of 1 out of 8, the glue inlet method for diving mouth in the side of the products into the glue, open the mold can be automatically separated. All molds to avoid the ordinary large spout into the glue, by manual post-processing shear spout in order to achieve the spout and product separation so that, for one thing, because of the high cost of manpower, manual post-processing shear spout discrepancy, manual shear spout to use water mouth pliers or knives, rubber parts easy to scratch and produce bad, people are also easy to injury and fatigue. Therefore, manual cutting of sprues is not in line with the guest's concept.
