cooling time

The time necessary for something to cool well below its present temperature. The cooling function is the rate of cooling of matter as a function of temperature, taking into account primary emission processes such as thermal bremsstrahlung and line radiation.

Three-dimensional heat transfer simulation using popular commercially available finite element software packages can be used to predict the transient mold thermal state until the quasi steady state is achieved and thus predict the needed cooling time.
For example, take a part needing 12 sec of cooling time before the part is solidified enough to be ejected without distortion, sticking, pin push, or other typical problem with parts too hot to eject.
Cycle time is also said to be up to 25 per cent lower due to the faster injection rate and reduced cooling time.
The study establishes the relationship between the cooling time and the fusion performance.
Both systems offer customers rapid heating and cooling time, uniform flat-zone temperatures, high throughput, low cost of ownership and full automation.
The company says that it can increase output by up to 20 per cent through faster injection and reduced cooling time.
The RAM 28 with a range of 2-inch IPS to 8-inch DIPS both with Ritmo's Easy-Life program/control panel allows the operator to set the machine for heating temperature, facing pressure, heating time, soaking time, fusion pressure, fusion time and cooling time.
The system is designed to accommodate flaskless molds at a maximum rate of 120 molds/hr with 70 min of in-mold cooling time.
Process conditions include pack pressure, pack time, injection speed, mold temperature, melt temperature, and cooling time.
Accordingly, there are at least two important concepts to consider in terms of cooling system design and processing conditions during the cooling stage of the injection molding process: (a) minimizing cooling time and (b) achieving uniform cooling.
