In a recent webinar regarding Scientific Molding, I received this question…
Is scientific molding applicable to high speed packaging machine where injection fill time and hold time are around 0.5s with an overall cycle time of 3sec?
Yes, you should always approach processing logically and document the process by its outputs… especially in your case, where any change in your process is virtually imperceptible to the human eye. Such changes can only be identified through the accurate measurement and proper documentation.
Although every process seems unique, all injection molding processes operate under similar principles. There is a 1st stage fill time, 2nd stage pack time, final part weight, melt temperature, etc. All these factors are imperative in ensuring a process can be consistently repeated.
