Time is money, and time means seconds when it comes to injection molding cycle times. This is a major focus when first considering mold design choices. Reducing seconds out of a cycle time can dramatically increase the profitability of a job and lower the piece part cost. This also needs to be done while maintaining product quality criteria (critical dimensions, warpage, cosmetics etc.). This can be accomplished by exploring part design, cooling methods, mold materials, ejection methods, runner/ gate designs and machine parameters.
Mold development and design choices will impact economics and product quality. In this webinar we’ll take a look at the challenging mold design choices and how they can be validated, when using Moldflow techniques.
