Influencing the tribological properties by dynamic tempering
The tribological properties of injection moulded thermoplastic components are depending on inner component properties, which can be influenced by, inter alia, the temporal change in temperature of the melt during the manufacturing process. In this paper, a novel approach for dynamic tempering is presented. By varying the parameters of mould temperature and isothermal holding time, micro parts with different inner properties are produced and investigated for their tribological behaviour. First results with polyoxymethylene show that the mould temperature shows influence on the wear behaviour, while a variation of the isothermal holding time obtained no significant effects.

The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
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.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
