Mold manufacturing can be described as a production process in which molten raw materials are shaped by inserting them into a mold and then left to solidify. After solidifying, the product is in the form of the mold which is designed by designers according to the preferences of the customers. In most cases, mold manufacturers use metal to make the molds while the raw materials poured into them may be liquified plastics, ceramic, metal, or in some cases glass. Over the years, Sweden has grown in the production sector and most companies have embraced mold manufacturing as the main method of manufacturing. This method is favorable due to the benefits that come with it and serves many kinds of industries such as the automotive, medical, packaging, food and beverages, and aerospace industries among others.
