Mold shrinkage and shorten cycle time
The purpose of mold temperature control of mold temperature and the influence of mold temperature on injection parts In the injection molding process, the main purpose of mold temperature control is to heat the mold to the working temperature, and second to keep the mold temperature constant at the working temperature. If the above two points are successful, the cycle time can be optimized to ensure stable and high quality injection molded parts. Mold temperature will affect surface quality, fluidity, shrinkage, injection cycle and deformation.
If the mold temperature of the mold temperature machine is too high or insufficient, it will have different effects on different materials. For thermoplastics, a higher mold temperature will usually improve the surface quality and fluidity, but will extend the cooling time and injection cycle. A lower mold temperature will reduce the shrinkage in the mold, but will increase the shrinkage of the injection molded part after demolding. For thermosetting plastics, a higher mold temperature usually reduces the cycle time, and the time is determined by the time required for the part to cool. In addition, in the processing of plastics, a higher mold temperature will also reduce the plasticizing time and reduce the number of cycles.
Mold temperature machine can also shorten the cycle time and reduce product cost. Secondly, the mold temperature machine must be able to keep the temperature of the heat transfer fluid constant within the range of 1℃-3℃, depending on the quality requirements of the injection molded parts. The third is that the heat-conducting fluid must have good thermal conductivity. It is important that it can introduce or export a large amount of heat in a short time. From a thermodynamic point of view, water is significantly better than oil.
After purchasing a new mold temperature machine, please check whether the cooling water circulates before use to prevent damage to the mold temperature machine due to insufficient cooling water. We must keep the working environment of the mold temperature machine clean and avoid dust, which can greatly extend the service life of the electrical components of the mold temperature machine.
For the new mold temperature machine, we need to make different maintenance measures according to the heat conduction medium used. If the medium is water, we must keep the water source clean, so that it is not easy to scale, and it can also prevent the pipeline from being blocked. If the medium is oil, we need to replace it regularly according to the temperature of use. For the temperature above 200 ℃, we need to replace it once a month or two, and below 200 ℃, we can replace it once a quarter, so it is very easy to avoid The problem that the temperature cannot be increased.
