In this blog, we walk you through the basic short term testing of polymers , especially tensile and flex test including the basics of viscoelastic behavior.
In this blog as part of the intro to mold design, we will go through mold terminology, various parts of a mold.
Intro to mold design, this blog introduces the basics of mold parts and functionality. More to come in this topic….
Based on Harberc.com Injection Molding Guide, this blog walks you through all the aspects of part design. Paying attention to part design principles during initial part design stage helps a lot during processing, quality of […]
In this blog, you will learn how to compare materials on strength and stiffness of the material and the calculation on a beam example.
This blog is a continuation of Part1 blog which I did recently. Please watch that before this video blog for better understanding.
Published by Moldflow in 1990’s on how to position gates in a part with certain known principles. This blog takes you through design principles step by step.
This blog is same as the previous blog, only change is the units. You will learn how to calculate part weight in imperial units and cost calculation in USA.
In this blog, you can see an example of part weight and cost calculation, also by hand calculation. A simple example for basic understanding is chosen.
This blog is a continuation of the shrinkage blog and warpage is a result of non-uniform shrinkage. You will learn the factors for warpage in this blog.
In this blog, you can learn shrinkage in polymers and PVT diagram for amorphous and crystalline material.
Recently we have added new shot size, plasticizing calculators and updated residence time calculators for accuracy. Please check it out!
Recently we have added polymer and filler abbreviation page. Please check out “Poly Abb+” page and take a test drive. Hope you will like it!
In this blog we discuss injection rate setup in an injection molding machine. Velocity profile and packaging machines are shown as an example.
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.
