About Us

In order to reduce cycle time, there needs to be an understanding of heat management. This entails thermodynamics, dynamic heat transfer and how fluid dynamics impacts heat transfer. The First Law of thermodynamics states that: "Energy can neither be created nor destroyed but only changed from one form to another." The Second Law of thermodynamics states: "Heat is transferred from a hot body to a cold body." How does that apply to injection molding and cycle time? If you're molding a resin that requires a 350 0F mold temperature and the mold was hung directly to the press platens, it will be very difficult, if not impossible to hold that mold temperature at startup. The heat is going from the hot mold to several thousand pounds of the press platens that are at room temperature which is acting as a heat sink. Almost as fast as the heat is being pumped into the mold, it is escaping into the press platens. An insulation board needs to be installed between the mold and the press platens. After startup, the hot oil coursing through the mold becomes a refrigerant because the heat from the resin melt at 600 0F is being transferred to the mold and oil, which are cooler at 350 0F.The biggest problem is that very often management is not looking at total cost of projects and more on individual cost. If we start to add traveling, troubleshooting, problems in cross cultural management then we get completely different picture. I know this from my own experience with Chinese vendors. 3D printing is getting more and more advanced, more precise and more affordable. Those it represent the addition to injection molding or in reality it is kind of threat to it (especially to low volume). Or in future even threat to major part of industry.
