A multi-cavity mold is a a custom plastic injection mold with multiple cavities of the same part that is typically used to reduce piece-part pricing for higher volume parts. If you want more than tens of thousands of parts per month, then a Multi-Cavity Mold is for you. Mold Precision recommends more than a single cavity mold when the capacity is going to be greater than 40,000 pieces a month.
Custom plastic injection molds are used in injection molding processes using an injection molding machine such as the Engel 40 Ton Tiebarless Injection Molder (shown below). These are generally used to produce plastic parts using a core and a cavity, runners & gates. Plastic Injection Molding is a manufacturing process for making plastic parts in large volume. It is generally used in mass-production processes where the same part is being created thousands or millions of times in in a cycle.
