Some Tips For Operating and Maintaining Plastic Injection Molds

The molds represent a very crucial part of injection molding. The quality and suitability of a mold are important in injection molding. So is the suitability of the plastic for the product type.  A well-made mold contributes a large chunk to the total cost of injection molding. Molds can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. And when you spend that much on something it is worth paying attention to how to make it last and work well. To plastic engineers and manufacturers, the molds are an investment. One which generates a return. This is in the form of a cost

nylon vs abs injection molding

NYLON VS ABS INJECTION MOLDING

The plastic industry has seen a lot of growth over several decades. The direction of growth might shift towards one form of plastic or the other in different years. But the general effect is the increasing options for plastics. Product designers and manufacturers today have a myriad of choices in material selection. Nylon and ABS are two very well used plastics in the manufacturing of plastic products. They are particularly attractive to injection molders as they offer some peculiar advantages. Several nylon products will do just as well if they got made with ABS and vice versa. There are also

how to improve flash burrs

How To Improve The Plastic Injection Molding Flash/Burrs (more detail)

In the mechanical process, flash and burrs are molding defects that generate after processing. They can affect product quality and cost. It means the appearance of debris on the plastic molded parts is flash and burrs defects. A large number of flash and burrs on plastic parts means the low quality of products. They’re very common issues and have different names such as flash, burrs, and spew. Flash and burrs are challenges for the technicians in the plastic molding process. Some industries need deflashing and deburring products. Such as medical, marine, automotive, aerospace, and electronics. Flashing is excess material that

how to improve the sink mark

How To Improve The Sink Mark In Injection Molding

Many factors affect plastic part design and functionality. A sink mark appears on the surface where a plastic part has variations in wall thickness. Large variations mean a large number of sink marks on a plastic molded part. If cooling time and the mechanism is not enough for the cooling process. Then the sink mark creates as thick parts need much time for cooling. By reducing the thickness of the thickest wall, you can faster the cooling process. In this way, you can reduce the sink mark on the plastic molded parts. They occur at the localization above ribs, internal
