You can expect 25 to 30% cost saving with metal-to-plastic conversion. With high strength, consistent reliability, and the ability to be manufactured to the same tight tolerances as metal, plastic parts offer various benefits across all types of industrie ...
Injection molding is manufacturing process for producing plastic parts. It is done on thermoplastic materials such as ABS, PC, PE, PS and Nylon to achieve high production rate. Injection moulding process requires injection mold for manufacturing a part.
Selecting best tool steel for injection molding tool cavity is a critical and very important task. It makes a huge difference on tool cost, tool life and quality of part in long run.
Following points need to be considered for tool steel selection.
During Injection Molding process some plastic defects come-up that affects product performance, function & aesthetics. We need to follow plastic design guidelines to reduce injection moulding defects. Injection molding defects can be because of desi ...
What is runner?
A runner is a channel in the mold that guides the molten plastic from the barrel of the injection molding machine to the cavity of mould.
In this article we will discuss hot runner and cold runner systems
