Structured Surfaces in Injection Molds Allow for Longer Flow Paths
The filling of injection molds with plastic melt depends, among other things, on the surface quality of the mold cavity. An application-oriented structuring of the cavity surface increases the length of the flow path of the melt by up to 18 %, depending on the plastic material. This opens up the possibility of achieving longer flow paths with existing injection molding technology.
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.
