Batch process


A mass production technology that uses molds to manufacture a batch of identical products.

The molds here are not only the casting molds and dies for metals, glass, plastics and so on, but also include the forms and photomasks used for printing. The term batch process includes the following processes that use these molds: removal, deposition, modification, bonding, and so on. The sequential process is distinguished from batch process, which takes time but allows higher degree of freedom, and therefore is usually used in a stage proceeding to batch process, for example, preparation of a mold.
