After each simulated molding cycle, SimTech tells the user the resulting part quality and cycle time.
We provide the more effective results in molding cycle time, quality consistence and repeatability as well as longer mold life in mass molding production and their maintenance.
The amount of reactive mixture used in every foam molding cycle was 180 g, containing a ratio of 1.7 (w/w) of formulated polyol to isocyanate.
New features included in Preview 3 include the capability to simulate mold temperature fluctuations during the molding cycle or over many cycles of production start-up.
Tokyo, July 2, 2010 - (JCN) - Panasonic Electric Works and Teijin announced their joint development of a highly heat-resistant polylactide (PLA) molding compound made 80% from plant-based renewable feedstock and providing significantly reduced molding cycle time of around half that of conventional PLA compounds.
Says Ludwig Schleicher, CEO of the company with his name, "Of course, we ensure that the automation system is designed so the parts handling cycle times don't exceed the insert molding cycle times.
Standard features on the system include a PLC to optimize the molding cycle, an operator video display unit, quick pattern change, computer integrated manufacturing technology to enable pre-programming of pattern data for error avoidance and time saving, chamber/mold blow-off, and in-chamber spray.
To debut at this month's Fakuma show in Germany, the viper 20 speed has a removal time "well under 1 sec," Engel says, and is suited to injection molding cycle times around 4 sec.
MS-1001 moldable silicone shares the product line's ability to be injection molded into complicated geometric shapes, thicker or bigger parts with reasonable molding cycle times compared with organic materials.
The molding tooling is constructed of aluminum to allow fast heat transfer during the molding cycle. The faster the tool can be heated and cooled, the quicker the molding cycle time.
Only one molding cycle (filling, packing, cooling) was calculated, and the warpage result based on this assumption is shown in Fig.
Needles are used to inject and vent gas during the molding cycle. The majority of needles operate with valve systems that rely on moving members for high flow rates.
