Learn the fundamentals of process optimization by understanding how different phases in the injection molding cycle will influence the overall part quality. Build your own Circle of Knowledge lesson by lesson.
Goals of Processing: Shrinkage and Warpage (Level 1):
- Learn the fundamentals of shrinkage and warpage during the processing phase of injection molding
- Gain an understanding of how part design, mold design, and process are connected and interdependent
- Analyze real-life molded parts and learn the cause and effect behaviors of design and process
Molding high-quality parts is dependent on many factors, including skillful part and mold design, an understanding of polymer material behavior, and an optimized process. It is important for injection molding processing engineers to follow key steps to ensure consistently high-quality molded parts.
Explanations, simulations, cause and effect analyses, and specific shrinkage and warpage examples are covered in this section.
