    Re: Insert molding metal terminals

    I believe you will need to tweak the terminal design to ensure the melt flow and cavity pressure doesn't damage them. But, if not properly supported in the mold; they can move and may get twisted or...

    Re: M.F.R. Question

    I remember a resin supplier at one time would pull samples and watch the MFR of the resin. Typically you get low at the start- of a production run and high at the end. So they would go back and post...

    Re: Back Pressure

    Do you have a shut off nozzle? Without it, and without the proper software in some machines, you cannot continue to recover the screw while the mold opens and the parts are ejected; for the absolute...

    Re: Shop recommendations

    You also need to discuss the tolerances because that will dictate final costs. Also, can you use UHMWPE instead to save money on the parts? Even machining for those small quantities will be hard for...
  6. Re: Round pieces injection resulting squared problem

    Where is the gate? Gate size? Gate style? Mold and melt temps? What's the part length? Normally these are extruded due to these reasons.

  7. Re: Intermittent screeching noise during plasticising stage

    Does the press have a high torque screw plasticizing settings? If so I would turn it on. I would see if you can see the actual screw drive pressure/energy while plasticizing. I would bet that the...

    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.

  16. 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: 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...
  21. Re: Random variation on cushion and part sticking to core.

    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...

    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.
