PROCESSING FOR INJECTION MOLDING
There are four major processing variables that affect the Injection Molding Process. With a combination of classroom discussion and lab we will cover these variables. They are melt temperature, fill speed, pack pressure and cooling rate. We will discuss and demonstrate what press input affects these variables. The injection forward phase of the process will be broken into “fill” and “pack and hold.” Decoupled, Scientific, Systematic and 3-stage molding will be discussed and clarified.
