Cooling Time or Temperature?

You may still have to make a few more adjustments to the cooling time and coolant temperature to get the optimal settings, but this will get you close in a very short period of time.

Question: Which do I work on setting first, cooling time or mold temperature when performing initial tool trials?

My Response: The most efficient approach is to first start with a long cooling time and determine the lowest mold temperature which allows you to mold an acceptable part. Once this is complete, you can determine the lowest acceptable cooling time based on part quality and part ejection.
