Abstract

The industrial sector is constantly looking for ways to increase productivity and satisfy the
market's rising needs. The optimization of mold design, namely the quantity of cavities
within a mold, is one area of attention. The goal of manufacturers is to boost production
speeds and overall efficiency by increasing the number of cavities. The aim of this study is
to determine how production efficiency is affected by the number of cavities. Highlighting
the advantages and disadvantages of increased mold cavities. The production efficiency of
a sample product with an increased number of cavities was examined in terms of
production speed, cycle time and mold costs. According to preliminary research, molds
with more cavities can produce goods with a significantly higher level of efficiency. Higher
cavity counts have shown the ability to boost output, shorten cycle times, and maximize
resource efficiency. The need for careful quality control procedures and higher mold costs
are just a couple of the potential trade-offs that must be taken into account. The findings
of this study offer useful information to manufacturers looking to enhance their
production procedures. By providing evidence for the effects of mold cavity count on
production efficiency, the findings add to the body of existing knowledge. The outcomes
can serve as a roadmap for decision-making, influencing mold design decisions and
facilitating the adoption of cost-effective tactics in the manufacturing sector.
