Troubleshooting focus: warped or distorted parts
|TMI TIP: Proper cooling is well worth the wait when processing copolyesters. Their relatively low flexural modulus gives them a greater ability to flex and rebound-and allowing the skin to freeze is the best way to ensure optimum results. For more information, watch the webinar 共聚聚酯加工解决方案。|
Early collaboration pays long-term rewards
You can increase the chances of success in injection molding projects with early involvement of all major stakeholders. The many rewards of early collaboration include:
- Reduced product development time
- Optimized part performance
- Optimized cycle time
- Lower scrap rate
Part design: Gate location
Gates are the belly buttons of the injection molding world-every molded part has one. The big difference is that molders can control the location of the gate. The location should be selected based on an evaluation of part aesthetic requirements, mechanical loading requirements, and fill pattern.
Proper cooling saves time, improves quality
With any polymer, poor and uneven cooling can result in:
