Lesson 8: Crate Mold

The injection molding process requires understanding of cause-and-effect and interactive molding behavior. In this lesson we will continue to apply theoretical molding process development information to an actual part. This lesson focuses on the development and execution of a process development strategy for single cavity storage crate mold.

In this lesson you will learn: the step-by-step approach to achieving target cycle time and clamp tonnage goals; how one- and two-speed set-up processes decay injection flow speed and impact clamp tonnages; and how both flow speed during filling and packing pressure have a significant impact on pressure and clamp tonnage development.
