high cavitation and high capacity output
Whether your project is dental dog treats or plastic dog toys our team of Westerners will design a mold that fits your highly specific project goals.
As Westerners who make molds for customers with high production capacity needs (in a variety of industries including pet treats), we fully understand the consequences of down time and how the knock on effects can be devastating to you and your retail channels. Our Western process for mold building in China includes a lot of up front work to qualify designs using DFMPro as well mold design qualification tools like Moldex3D. We take a measured approach on the front end with our USA based engineering team qualifying everything before we even think of cutting injection mold steel. The results on the back-end are…no big surprises, molds that run well, at speed, and as intended on your presses back home.
If you have a final design for your dog treat and just need a mold built, that’s great, we can help with that. If you need some prototype work done to qualify your existing design, we can help with that. If you are at the concept phase of your dog treat design and need some engineering design work done, we can help with that.
Our high capacity, high cavitation molds for dog treats are typically 50% cheaper than USA built injection molds and will still meet your needs with feature sets such as:
- Stainless steel A and B plates
- Diffusion bonded hot runner system, superior to brazed for cleanliness
- Full stainless steel manifold. Superior to brazed P20 steel manifolds
- Low waste, full individual valve gates
- Up to 96 cavities, high productivity
- Complex designs with side actions are no problem
- Mold trials in a range of standard treat formulations
- Plus our Western team of native English speakers living in China take a hands-on approach to managing all mold builds

2 Key China Mold Making Issues Jade Solves
Problems with hot runners – A detailed QC check list is required for hot runners. You need to do the same checks each time, it is not that hard but it is tedious work that requires extensive knowledge and a robust QC system. Hot runners are not a mystery to us, at Jade we work and have worked with every brand. We have the experience, expertise and QC systems in place to make sure your hot runners will not end up being a mess. Plus we have great mold designs that allow you to maintain your hot runners with ease. Check out a Jade video on hot runners here.
Mold trial issue – This is a big problem for a typical China mold maker as they just don’t run their injection molding presses the same way you do in the West. Plus they don’t see any problem with cutting corners at this stage of the mold build. They treat it as a bit of a nuisance exercise where they just need to produce test parts that are good enough so you say “yes, ship the mold”.
We don’t think that way at Jade. The mold trial is everything. It is the proof of the entire project and when we trial molds correctly then it is generally the end of the project for us (because you won’t have problems after we ship the mold). We trial molds at temp, we run enough parts to know if the mold has a problem, we trial molds using the injection molding process parameters that you will run at your facility back home, parameters that we have all agreed upon ahead of time and parameters that Moldex3D has helped us optimize. At the mold trial stage we test hard because we want to know if there are problems and we want to fix those problems before we ship you the mold.
