Intensification Ratio for An Electric Machine…

I received this question from a friend of mine the other day…

What intensification ratio is used for an electric molding machine? Our customer needs a value to calculate the material’s viscosity.
My Response
The Intensification Ratio is used to convert hydraulic pressure to plastics pressure. Basically, there is no intensification ratio since the electric molding machine already provides plastic pressure. Since many worksheets use hydraulic pressure, they require an intensification ratio to complete the calculation. For these situations, the intensification ratio should be 1.0.
