How to Address Cooling Issues in the Mold

About this event

One of the most desirable characteristics of injection molding is the ability to economically mass-produce plastic components. While design has a significant impact on the overall cycle time of the part, the ability to properly maintain the desired mold temperature is critical for ensuring a consistent process and maintaining high part quality.

Cooling can often be addressed toward the end of the mold design phase and approached with a “what will fit” mentality, thus leave cooling of the mold less than optimal. Additionally, a cooling strategy can be implemented with no regard to the physical limitations of the cooling equipment.

This webinar will highlight the different aspects of mold design and cooling that should be considered to yield high quality parts while achieving realistic cycle times. The webinar will also highlight how conformal cooling strategies can be used to help improve part quality.

After this webinar, the attendee will have a better understanding of:

  • What to consider for optimizing cycle time from both a part design, material selection, and mold design perspective.
  • How to make proactive, critical decisions regarding the mold cooling strategy and determine what is required to optimize the cooling efficiency of the mold
  • How additive manufacturing is allowing for more robust cooling strategies without sacrificing mold integrity, or longevity.
  • How simulation can be used to help validate the investment of new technologies or alloy materials prior to first shot construction.
