There are some terms used in molded novelty manufacture. Now, we introduce two of them.
1. Wide: It is about ice cream mold. It refers to the number of individual molds in a row of the machine, for example, eight wide means eight molds in one row, and twelve wide means twelve molds in a row.
2. Strokes: It means number of pieces produced in one synchronous movement. It is a measurement of speed. Typical strokes are 16-24 per min. So an eight wide machine operating at 16 strokes per min produces 128 pieces per min or 7680 pieces per h.
