Hot/Cold Injection Molding: Which Approach Is Best for You?

Aug 10, 2022

Despite the many advances in injection molding technology, challenges remain in producing visually acceptable parts with high esthetic requirements, free of molded-in stress, and with high dimensional stability, as well as reliably filling thin walls with high flow lengths. In the early 2000s, several Japanese companies collaborated in developing a molding technology that could satisfy the most stringent surface-quality requirements of their demanding electronic consumer-goods clients. In 2002, Ono Sangyo Co., a leading contract injection molder with a substantial processing technology department, introduced and patented the Rapid Heat Cycle Molding (RHCM) process. In 2009, Matsui Manufacturing Co., the leading plastics... Read More

Nylon or PU Wheels? Midland Pallet Trucks Helps You Decide

Aug 08, 2022

Midland Pallet Trucks have spoken out to businesses who may be trying to decide on a brand new pallet truck, advising them to make the type of wheels one of their top considerations as they narrow down the criteria. There are a great number of considerations that should be made when purchasing a new pallet truck. Capacity, size, weight, the amount of maintenance it will need and whether it needs any added accessories are all be important things to research to ensure the right truck is chosen – but what about the type of wheels the truck will require? There... Read More

Casting grade of polyurethane can be injection-molded

Aug 03, 2022

Adiprene C930, a low free methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) -based cast urethane from Lanxess, has been proven as an appropriate material for being processed via injection molding. Korean company Autox developed a production process that allows the cast polyurethane grade to be injection-molded. This innovation brings a new perspective to the cast polyurethane (CPU) world as it combines the processing advantages of injection molding along with the properties of cast urethane. Autox has recently launched a new vibrating screen for the mining industry which is made from this Adiprene cast PU prepolymer by injection molding. One of the benefits in... Read More

Injection Molding: Focus on these Seven Areas to Set a Preventive Maintenance Schedule

Aug 01, 2022

It is impossible to mold parts without a working injection machine. This is something that molders can state with absolute clarity. Yet, there are still many companies that follow a “run-parts-until-the-machine-breaks-down” approach. The question we must ask ourselves is why? Unplanned maintenance is costly. In these instances, the discussion and development of repair plans occurs with the press sitting idle. Replacement parts need to be located, assuming they are in-house at all. If no replacement parts are available, searching for and ordering components from part vendors becomes necessary. Then, if production demands it, delivery of those parts may need to... Read More

Injection Molding: Mold Mover Made More Ergonomic

Jul 11, 2022

German firm RUD (Aalen) has redesigned its Tool Mover with improved ergonomics in mind. Used for unmounting heavy tools from injection molding machines or dismantling machine parts weighing several tons that previously required a crane and at least two operators, the Tool Mover simplifies these tasks and its new lower working height means operators can labor in a more natural posture. RUD is represented in the U.S. by Caldwell Inc. (Rockford, Ill.). RUD’s Tool Mover is available in multiple configurations, with the smallest Slim version able to handle weights of up to 10 tonnes on its 800-mm table surface. The... Read More

How plastic fills a mold

Jul 06, 2022

There are three distinct processing phases in injection molding. The three phases in the molding process are as follows: Filling phase Packing phase Cooling phase 1. Filling phase During the filling phase, plastic is pushed into the cavity until the cavity is just filled. As plastic flows into the cavity, the plastic in contact with the mold wall quickly freezes. This creates a frozen layer of plastic between the mold and the molten plastic. At the interface between the static frozen layer and the flowing melt, the polymer molecules are stretched out in the direction of flow. This alignment and... Read More

Cycle time

Jul 04, 2022

Cycle time is the total time required to complete all the stages of the injection molding cycle. The cycle time is made up of the following stages: Fill time. The time required to fill the mold with polymer. The injection molding machine controls the velocity (flow rate) of the molten polymer entering the mold during this stage of the cycle. Packing time The stage of the injection molding cycle when pressure is applied to the polymer melt to compress the polymer and to force more material into the mold. This compensates for the shrinkage that occurs as the polymer cools... Read More

The Injection Molding Process

Jun 15, 2022

A staple of the industrial sector since its inception in the early 1870s, injection molding is used for producing a wide array of products ranging from bottle caps to automotive parts. With the ability to produce large quantities of a given product at low prices, it’s no wonder that the process has been around for so long. So how, exactly, does injection molding work? There are three basic steps that every injection molding process must go through. The first is the creation of a mold. Today, these molds are often drawn up as 3D computer-generated models that are designed to... Read More
