Fine Channels, Maximum Efficiency
Improving Conformal Cooling with Design, Simulation, and Processing Know-How
The production costs for complex injection molded parts not only depend on material costs but also to a considerable extent on cycle time. The cycle time is divided into the injection, holding pressure, (residual) cooling phases and the tool movements. The cooling phase takes up 60 to 90 % of cycle time, depending on the particular plastic material and part component. Adequate cooling can therefore reduce not only cooling time but also cycle time.
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
