    Re: Kraus Maffai - adding USB.

    You can get a floppy emulator from various sources that accept USB sticks on the other end.

    Re: Large Injection Mold Pallets

    We have two mold movers that we use to get the tools under the correct crane. One is a large heavy duty pallet Jack on steroids and the other a truck like thing you drive from on top. We store...

    Re: Krauss Maffei

    You have to change the setting on the hold pressure stages from one mode to the other but with a KM I’m afraid you’ll be disappointed. Also, I think that’s how they tunes the electric servo pumps....

    Re: Problem during TPE processing

    I would lower the barrel settings slightly as I believe the barrel capacity is low enough to cause cooking out of some of the additives in the resin. Also what size are the resin purchases? I ask...

    Re: Unsolved ınjection problems

    I suspect your barrel settings are too high for UV package in resin. Hence to odd locations. Need to reduce the barrel sertings, screw rpm and back pressure.

  9. Re: New Machine Brand Decision? Help me choose!

    If you’re looking at Mucell, Engel was one of the first to assist with that technology from the start. Also, with that process you can run larger shot weights with lower clamp forces. I don’t like...

    Re: Overmolding/Insert molding

    First off you should mold the abs and then over mold. Secondly you can purchase an add on injection unit from numerous companies now days. Most of them are available in all electric platforms for...

    Re: Rare cosmetic defect

    To me it looks like either poor color dispersion or unmelted pellets. I would watch the screw recovery pressure at start and then check it every half hour. I think you’ll find it low at the start and...

    Re: Embedded Bubbles

    In my experience with running clear resin , you never run the screw empty and you never shut the barrel heats off. You ramp them down low enough the resin won’t degrade and leave them on; say 350*F....

    Re: Overmolding or insert molding?

    I ask; did you tell preheat metal inserts? Differential shrinkage can be the root cause. But I also ask did you clean/degrease inserts prior to molding? Cutting oils normally have sulphur in them...
  14. Re: Random variation on cushion and part sticking to core.

    So it appears this is a thin wall high speed press and process? I ask how long
    It takes screw to recover, do you have shut off nozzles in mold or on press, and can you monitor screw recovery...

    Re: Help please, Milky Bloom/stain

    What is the width and depth of the tab gate? What is the part thickness at the gate? I think your gates should be much wider and the depth adjusted to create a better melt flow in the cavity. I also...

    We use the same tolerances on all settings, like barrel or mold heats +/- 10* C, tonnage and all variables are given similar ranges. No issues for us as long as the variance sheet lists name, defect...

    Re: Help please, Milky Bloom/stain

    It looks like you are shooting into sub-gated cold runner from valve gate. I think the gates are too small and shearing the melt to the point that the talc is blooming onto the surface. Sequencing...

    Re: Embedded Bubbles

    I could see an additive or even the FR or UV package breaking down. One question: What do you use to purge and shut down with? Kinda looks like PE or PP contamination.

    Re: Old 250 Ton Milacron

    Sounds like the pre-fill valve doesn’t close until 2nd attempt. Be that a sticking valve or loss of clamp lock up signal I’m not sure. Could even be low pump output pressure or flow.
    I’d check and...
  20. Re: How to avoid transition marks due to change in flow rate while using Sequential gating?

    The color changes are more than likely due to the flow direction changes and enhanced by the pigment particle shape from the colorant. We’ve seen this many times and our process fill pattern could be...

    When I see this, I feel that the gates are dull. The dull edges of the gate create the flakes at the runner is separated from the part. Part of your issue may be that the gate edges were dulled due...

    Re: Storage Box Lid Warpage

    I think you will need a short and quickly ramping downward hold pressure profile to stop this tendency. The root cause is as you said. I think a warmer mold on both halves to reduce molded in stress...
