Continuous mold is a kind of mold widely used in the metal stamping industry. For products such as shrapnel, terminals, and connectors, the use of continuous mold can greatly improve production efficiency. The layout design of continuous mold material is the key technology of continuous mold production, and it is also a very crucial part of the entire mold production. The following introduces the common continuous mold material tape layout method. 1, horizontal row is used for materials with a regular shape, small aspect ratio and no lines. 2, vertical row is used for products that have a single shape, a large aspect ratio, and no line requirements. 3, oblique row is used for products that have stricter texture requirements on the material, and the bending line and the texture line cannot be parallel. 4. Symmetrical row is used for products with small shapes. When single row is used, the material belt is narrow and long, which is not convenient for mold manufacturing. 5, staggered row is used for products with complementary shapes. When single row is used, the waste area is larger, which is not conducive to reducing costs.
