Title: INJECTION MOULDING TOOL FOR PRODUCING AT LEAST TWO DIFFERENTLY SHAPED INJECTION MOULDED WORKPIECES, METHOD OF PRODUCING AT LEAST TWO DIFFERENTLY SHAPED INJECTION MOULDED WORKPIECES, AND INJECTION MOULDED WORKPIECE
Abstract:
Shown is an injection moulding tool (1) for producing at least two differently shaped injection moulded workpieces (2), comprising a cavity (3) and a modification element (4) that can be arranged at least partially in the cavity (3) and that is movable from a first position (11) into a second position (12) in order to change the geometry of the cavity (3), wherein the modification element (4) together with the remainder of the cavity (3) forms the cavity (3) for a first injection moulded workpiece (2, 21) in the first position (11) and the modification element (4) together with the remainder of the cavity (3) forms the cavity (3) for a second injection moulded workpiece (2, 22) that is different from the first injection moulded workpiece (2, 21) in the second position (12). Further shown is a method of producing at least two differently shaped injection moulded workpieces (2, 21, 22) with a single cavity (3), having a movable modification element (4), wherein, to produce a first injection moulded workpiece (2, 21), the modification element (4) is moved into a first position (11) and, to produce a second injection moulded workpiece (2, 22), the modification element (4) is moved into a second position (12). An injection moulded workpiece (2, 21, 22) is produced with such an injection moulding tool (1) and/or with such a method.
