What is a cavity?
The word ‘cavity’ is used in mold manufacturing. It refers to the hollow section of a mold, in which the product takes shape in the desired form and with the required surface structure, by means of a process called injection. ‘256 cavity’ means that 256 injection-molded parts can be produced during a single injection cycle.
