Support Plates

Types of support plates

  • Support Plate
  • Back-up Plate
  • Reinforcing Plate

The primary function of the support plate is to stiffen the mold during injection. It is generally a thick plate that will not bend during the injection phase of the molding process. The ejector mechanism (pins) slides though the support plate.
