Single cavity molds are designed to produce one part per cycle. They are a cost-effective approach when part volumes are low as they are less expensive to build. They also have a shorter lead time. The disadvantage is a higher piece part cost in molding production.
Multi-cavity molds produce more parts per cycle. The major advantages are increased capacity and lower piece part costs as more parts can be produced within a comparable cycle time.
