Moving a Mold from One Machine to Another…

I just got this question the other day…

When I want to move mold to another machine, which machine parameters should I check?
My Response
This question brings up the importance of machine independent documentation that includes part specific data such as part weight, fill time, coolant and melt tempertaures as well as the actual pressures applied to the polymer.
When you do this, you can ensure the actual process output from two different machines match. The most important factor is not the parameters that go into the machine, but the parts and associated outputs that result from the process.
