Mold Class Glossary
Class 105 tool
Prototype only. This mold will be constructed in the least expensive manner possible to produce a very limited quantity of prototype parts. Also known as a Class V tool.
A one-and-done market test of 100 molded units.
Class 104 tool
Low production mold. Use only for limited production preferably with non-abrasive materials. Low to moderate price range. Also known as a Class IV tool.
Aluminum or MUD tooling, SPI B-3 finish, hand-loaded cores and limited re-runs.
Class 103 tool
Medium production mold. This is a very popular mold for low to medium production needs. Most common price range. Also known as a Class III tool.
Aluminum or steel tooling, automated lifts or slides, multiple re-runs with batches between 1,000-5,000 units.
Class 102 tool
Medium to high production, good for abrasive materials and/or parts requiring close tolerance. This is a high quality, fairly high priced mold. Also known as a Class II tool.
Steel tooling with an SPI A-2 finish, automated slides, scheduled production cycles.
Class 101 tool
Built for extremely high production. This is the highest-priced mold and is made with only the highest quality materials. Also known as a Class I tool.
Multiple-cavity steel tooling with full automation and overnight production workcenters for dedicated part manufacturing.
The injection molding industry often defines molds by their class. This goes from Class 105, a prototype mold (e.g., a 100 piece one-and-done market test), to Class 101, which is built for extremely high production (e.g., making tens-of-millions contact lens cases). Xometry typically produces Class 104, 103, and 102 tools.
Moldmaker's choice of finish. Typically SPI B-3 to D-3 depending on geometry and drafts. Interior, non-cosmetic faces, are typically as-machined.
Range of finishes including matte, swirls, lines, and patterns. Finishes include: MoldTech - MT11010 MoldTech - MT11020 MoldTech - MT11030 MoldTech - MT112XX MoldTech - MT114XX MoldTech - MT116XX
Range of finishes from Grade 3 diamond / high polish to 320 stone low polish. Finishes include: SPI A-1 SPI A-2 SPI A-3 SPI B-1 SPI B-2 SPI B-3 SPI C-1 SPI C-2 SPI C-3 SPI D-1
No secondary polishing or grinding. Part will show tooling marks.
Xometry can match other mold textures upon request.
