The material is said to reduce injection molding cycle times by up to 25% in comparison to standard PA6 grades, with no significant loss of mechanical properties, according to the company.
LSR is used in many industries for numerous applications, owing to its short molding cycle and other cost-saving factors for the molder, according to the company.
LIM8040 characteristics also include low modulus, rapid molding cycle times of 20-60 seconds and outstanding thermal cycling performance, according to the manufacturer.
The boxes are usually actuated manually based on time from the start of the molding cycle, so part-to-part consistency is far from guaranteed.
Molding cycle time was said to be significantly shorter, since the ionomer required a longer cooling period to prevent parts from sticking in the mold.
Compared with Cortland, Vienna scored a 10% reduction in molding cycle time and 28% lower energy consumption, even though the plant is 50,000 sq ft larger.
The components, comprising integrated hard and soft elements, necessitated the use of new multi-material processing technologies, namely injection molding of two or more compatible materials in any one molding cycle.
Only one molding cycle (filling, packing, cooling) was calculated, and the warpage result based on this assumption is shown in Fig.
