This is the questions asked by molder, OEM or mold designer when starting a project. The answer depends on multiple situations and this blog takes you different scenarios to consider.
This blog introduces FLEXflow EVO family of hot runners from HRSflow hot runner company. We are discussing two products within the FLEXflow family of servo controlled valves and their advantages.
Here in this blog, we discuss barrel heats and how to set for correct temperatures. Different heat profiles are discussed.
This blog discusses the screw position in an injection molding process. During the entire injection molding cycle, the screw position varies and this blog takes you step by step.
Here is the blog on Intensification ratio calculation. This is only used for injection molding hydraulic machines and blog takes you step by step approach. Don’t be puzzled anymore!
This blog discusses the four important parameters for screw design. This is a continuation of screw terminology blog.
This blog introduces screw terminology which is a precursor for more blog coming in the pipeline. The basics of screw are covered in a short video.
In this blog, we are using step by step approach to shot size calculation using metric units. This is the most sort out calculation in the molding industry.
In this blog, we are using step by step approach to shot size calculation using imperial units. This is the most sort out calculation in the molding industry.
In this blog we discuss the plasticizing calculation and explanation of the molding cycle. Discussion includes both Imperial and metric calculation.
This blog discusses the drawbacks of picking a material purely on MFI. Shows the real world data with Therma-flo results which will be a better way to pick a material on flow properties.
This blog takes you step by step of residence calculation and explores two different methods. Also download the density chart for calculation here below.
Sometimes the actual pressure drop is much higher than predicted pressure drop. This blog explains this dilemma and give some ways to over come the issue with Therma-flo. Probably you haven’t seen this discussion anywhere […]
