Torsten’s Training Tips: Nominal Wall Thickness

What is nominal wall thickness and how is it relevant in designing functional plastic parts?  Although parts can have various wall thicknesses to accommodate form, fit, and function, designers are generally tasked with minimizing thickness to lessen material consumption, achieve a faster cycle time, and reduce manufacturing costs. But parts with thin walls are more […]

Kruse Training – Focused Learning

We are less than than three weeks from NPE 2018 — and we can’t wait to share Kruse Training with the injection molding industry. There are currently 42 focused learning lessons available, with many more in the works.

Torsten’s Training Tips: Fill Speed Profiles

Evaluating and understanding fill speed profiles is an important aspect of injection molding. Polymer materials can flow by heating them to their melting range. Every polymer has a melt and mold temperature range, and within that range the polymers flow and can be injected into a mold. Molten polymer is injected into the mold by […]
