Over the years MicroMolding has become a hot bed for solutions to problems that have been plaguing companies for years. Melt temperature too high Measure and reduce melt temperature. The other variables are mentioned, but not used in any calculations.

It includes recommendations for equipment, mold and processing, plus a quick reference trouble shooting guide. Your quote worksheet will present you with the currently available materials.

Hydraulic and All-Electric Injection Molding Machines The plastic injection molding machine is a tool that performs the processes required to convert raw plastic material into a finished or nearly finished part. Negligible pressure drop in gate 3. Knowing the shot weight of an injection mould tool is the first step in selecting a suitable screw and barrel assembly. Instead a large force must be used to inject the polymer into the hollow mould cavity.

Check the compatibility of pigment or master-batch with the base polymer. Injection weight, injection rate and plastcizing capacity are dependent upon molding conditions and resin used. The result has been countless articles in the trade magazines addressing this new niche Open as wide as the point when the mould guide pin escapes from the guide bush completely. Injection speed should be set depending on the size and shape of the moulded part and should be as fast as possible.

So how do you do the calculation? The next step is to find a screw and barrel assembly that has the right capacity for the shot weight so that 1.

Injection speed is so slow that the molten plastics becomes solid before it flows to the end of the mold. It is much difficult to set excellent process D. Chao-Chyun et al. In the mold, the plastic deformation of the mark and solid skin. In this study, a thin wall cavity is main factors considers that is gating system, cooling system designed as flow path for plastic injection mould. The and injection system. There are three major benefits of the injection moulding tests were performed by using metal process redesign effort.

First, closed loop pressure control has mould and stereo lithography mould to compare with the flow enabled tight coupling between the mass and momentum behaviour and defects occurrence of flat parts. This equations. This tight coupling allows the direct input and the experiment was perfumed the various process parameters to controllability of the melt pressure. The Second use of investigate the defects parts occur in Injection moulded parts.

The procedure of injection parts product both plastic materials that is thermoplastic and moulding is described as follows. Firstly, the raw material is thermosetting. Material is fed into a barrel and barrel is used heated to its melting temperature.

By high pressure, the for maintain the high temperature and material mixed, and melted polymer is injected into the cavity via a delivery by the help of reciprocating screw forced into a mould cavity system and a gate.

When filling is nearly completed, the reciprocating screw is also called ram injector. Where it cold cavity is maintained at a constant pressure for the packing and tough to the configuration of the mould cavity moulds is stage.

Injection II. Injection moulding is the common method of production component, with some A. Amit Kumar et. They are also phase of the design strategy. In parameter design, the best known as presses, they hold the moulds and components and setting of the control factors is determined. This is the shaped component formed. Injection moulding machines important step, as it does not affect the unit manufacturing have many components are available in different cost of the product.

Third is the design step and is exercised configurations including a horizontal configuration and a when further improvements are required for the optimized vertical configuration. There are the two types if injection design. Presses are depending on the tonnage, which depend V. This force keeps the mould closed during the injection process. Tonnage can vary from less than 6 tons to over 9, There are many defects occurs in plastic injection moulding tons, with the higher figures used in comparatively few that is silver mark, sink mark, burn mark, pin mark, glossy, manufacturing operations.

The clamp force needed is weld line and many more I observed that defects in the parts determined by the area of the part being moulded.

Mould seal clearance, inappropriate clamping force IV. Processing using a screw which is too deeply flighted in the feed section air intake. Raise temperature in feed section so that melting is earlier; use more suitable screw. Check plasticizing unit and hot runners for zones of impeded flow and if necessary correct them. Use of suitable colorants and batches; ensure good homogenization and dispersion; avoid thermal overloading.

The cause for the formation of streaks can be determined in many cases only after costly investigations, especially as the appearance of burning and moisture streaks is similar. Extensive knowledge of the plastic, the mold design and the processing are indispensable for overcoming the problem. Before launching expensive and time-consuming investigations the following points should be checked in the sequence given and if necessary optimized:.

Melt temperature Injection speed Residence time in the cylinder Back pressure Moisture content of granules Mold venting Cleaning of the plasticising unit Screw recovery speed.

Dark streaks caused by deposits of thermally damaged material from the hot runner. Color streaks due to deposits of material due to dead spots in a hot runner system.

Detached, slate-like surface layers, e. The molded part exhibits bubbling after warm storage. High shear stresses result in the formation of layers; even in compatible multiphase systems. Avoid contamination due to extraneous material or due to an unsuitable master batch specifically the carrier.

Flow fronts having an already cooled peripheral layer encounter one another and no longer allow fusion without marks. As far as possible, position weld lines where they have no visual or mechanical impact flow promoters, flow inhibitors ; check mold engineering: Change in apparent color; especially when inorganic decorative effect pigments are used the weld line appears as a dark line; conspicuous in dark, brilliant or transparent moldings having smooth surfaces polished to a high gloss.

Position 1. The air entrapped during injection of the melt is visible as a cavity air bubble in the molded part. Air entrapments should not be confused with voids. During mold filling air is entrapped on account of an inopportune shape of the molding and if occluded in the peripheral region close to the surface this can give rise to bubbles. As far as necessary optimize the geometry of the molding with the aid of a mold flow calculation.

Check design and condition of mold vents.

Sink marks are always produced in regions of accumulation of material when the contraction in volume arising during the cooling phase cannot be adequately compensated for by the holding pressure. Avoid large differences in wall thickness and accumulations of material e. Optimize melt and mold temperature; set the holding pressure, holding pressure time and melt cushion to adequate dimensions increase values.

As far as possible gate at the greatest wall thickness; design the sprue and gate cross sections in keeping with the material and molded part.

Cool thick-walled parts in cold water freezing of the peripheral layer in order to shorten the setting time. Usually not discernible from the outside except in the case of transparent materials. The melt in the interior is pulled towards the outside molding surface so that vacuum cavities are produced in the region which is still plastic. Pay heed to correct temperature control; set the holding pressure, holding pressure time and melt cushion to adequate dimensions.

As far as possible gate in the thickwalled area; design the sprue and gate cross sections in keeping with the material and molded part. Sink mark on the visible side Cause: Material accumulation as shown in Fig. Material accumulation avoidable by suitable recessing Melt accumulation Fig.

Voids at the end of the flow path in a cup. As a result of design related material accumulations, such as aprupt changes in wall thickness, ribs and fixing bosses sink marks are produced which give rise to glossy spots in textured surfaces.

Avoid material accumulations and aprupt changes in wall thickness; gate the part in the thickwalled area. Mat spots often arise on glossy parts having complex geometry aprupt changes in wall thickness, ribs, openings when at the same time the mold filling process is unsatisfactory.

Optimize the part and mold filling, e. Polish the finished part. As far as possible position weld lines where they are not visible flow promoters, flow inhibitors ; mold flow studies also provide guidance. Differences in gloss on account of good mat or poor glossy mold reproduction. High reproduction accuracy mat ; scanning electron micrograph, magnification Poor reproduction accuracy glossy ; scanning electron micrograph, magnification Due to exceeding the maximum permissible yield point as a result of the following for example.

Action of external force, arising for example from forcible demolding of undercuts. Reduce the force acting on the molding from the outside or employ thermoplastics having lower susceptibility to stress whitening e. Luran S ASA optimize the molddesign.

Increase mold surface and melt temperatures, reduce holding pressure and setting times and adjust injection speed; aim for low-stress processing in line with the requirements of the material; do not demold under residual pressure; select the ejector mechanisms and demolding drafts in such a way that troublefree demolding without relatively great force is ensured; alteration of sprue and gate conditions; modification of part design.

Scorching or black colorations at the end of the flow path or at points of confluence of melt streams entrapped air. Provide effective venting in the critical regions; reduce injection speed and melt temperature. Confluence of several melt fronts. In both cases the air to be displaced from the mold cavity is highly compressed and so overheated that the plastic melt chars locally.

Identify critical points at the planning stage using a moldflow simulation for example and correct the shape, gate location and wall thickness-distribution of the part by modifications. Decrease clamp force to provide a temporary solution.

The surface exhibits ejector marks differences in gloss, stress whitening and deformation. Demolding system: Optimize the demolding system. Ensure sufficient number of ejector pins. Ejector pins should be placed in areas, were high demolding forces are expected e. Check the mold for regular surface condition and if necessary remedy any defects. Unsuitable geometry of the moldings, e.

Ejected part temperature too high. Cool the core more intensively. Increase the setting time, check the changeover from injection pressure to holding pressure avoid overpacking and reduce holding pressure. Enlarge the drafts. Ejector marks due to the effective surface area of the ejector pins being too small. Demolding fracture; an excessively large undercut causes the bracket to be torn off.

Concentric, evenly spaced rings radiating from the sprue which as a result of differences in surface roughness appear alternately light and dark. In the case of thin-walled molding with large surfaces increasing the wall thickness often yields success.

Optimize the processing parameters high melt temperature, high mold surface temperature, medium to low injection speed and high holding pressure. Grooved surface which propagates along the course of the melt front.

The appearance of this surface defect is similar to the grooves in a record. Predominantly at the end of the flow path. Melt and mold surface temperatures and injection speed too low and flow cross section too small. Increase the melt temperature, mold surface temperature and screw advance speed. Enlarge the flow cross sections and optimize the shape of the molding.

Rapid cooling of the flow front regions close to the wall frozen peripheral layer causes the flow resistance in the molding cavity to rise and the otherwise uniform, laminar spread of the plastic melt to the wall to stagnate intermittently.

The plastic melt does not make full contact with the mold wall. Record effect as a result of the melt temperature and injection speed being too low Increase the melt and mold surface temperatures together with the injection speed. Increase the shot volume and check the nonreturn valve. Shot volume too low; no melt cushion. Increase the back pressure. The mold was designed with wall thicknesses which are too small or with long, thin-walled ribs.

Flow path too long.

Crosspiece incompletely formed; scanning electron micrograph, magnification 7: Fitting tolerances of the two halves of the molding are too great or the mold parting line is damaged. Adjust mold to permissible fitting tolerances and repair existing damage in the mold parting line.

Clamp force of the machine is inadequate high lifting forces or is set too low. Lower the injection speed and holding pressure or switch earlier from injection to holding pressure. Reduce melt temperature and mold temperature. Flash formation as a result of the clamp force of the machine being set too low The jet of melt shoots directly in the open cavity without any wall contact no laminar flow. Since the outer skin cools there is no longer any homogeneous connection to the rest of the melt; the results are weld lines, inhomogeneities, cold forming and local internal stresses.

The strand of melt is often rough, mat and exhibits differences in gloss or color with respect to the remainder of the molding. Position the gate in such a way that the jet of melt strikes a mold wall or a baffle plate laminar flow. Make the gate large enough. Attachment of radii in the transition from the gate to the molding is helpful.If the deviation is bigger than expected, unload the mould, make the clamping distance minimum and check it again.

A wide variety of plunger injection machine options are available to you, such as preform injection, injection blow molding, and tube head injection.
