Nonreusable mold processes mold materials using a mold that cannot be reused after the workpiece is created.

Overview of Process

Nonreusable mold processes are those processes that cause materials to take on the shape of a mold. However, these processes result in the destruction of the mold after the workpiece is created.

Additional Notes

This is a classification process, not a end-node process. Specifying the detailed end-node process required will produce a better RfD search result.
