An important part of a unit cost calculation is the process of setting up an injection mold.
Set-up is the preparation of the injection molding machine for the production of a specific molded part.
This includes setting up the molds, adjusting the machine parameters and checking the production processes.
The aim is to ensure smooth production. Efficient set-up is therefore crucial in order to maximize productivity and ensure the quality of the parts produced.
