Injection molding gate design Considerations: 1.A small opening between the runner and the mold cavity, of which the location, quantity, shape and size, etc. have a direct influence on product appearance, dimensional accuracy, physical characteristics and injection molding efficiency. 2.The size of an injection molding gate is dependent on product weight, material properties and gate … Read more

Hot runner system of plastic injection mold

By Jackie | August 28, 2018 | 0 Comments

How the Hot Runner Works The cold runner of a plastic injection mold refers to the section between the mold inlet and the gate. The molten plastic maintains its fluidity inside the runner by virtue of the injection pressure and its own heat. However, as a part of the molding material, the runner is not … Read more

The Cooling System

The spring for plastic injection mold

By Jackie | August 27, 2018 | 0 Comments

As an elastic component, the spring plays a very important role in a plastic injection mold, because a properly located spring is able to provide the necessary driving force that the mold needs. For example, when the ejection mechanism completes the ejection action of a plastic part, a spring can be applied to force the … Read more

The runner design

By Jackie | August 27, 2018 | 0 Comments

The Runner Concept The runner refers to the melt flow passageway between the end of the main runner and the gate, which is used to change melt flow direction and allocate it to each cavity in a stable and balanced way. The basic design principle of the branch runner is little pressure/heat loss, with the … Read more
