Injection Mold Cooling Systems

 The Purpose of  Injection Mold Cooling Systems 

The injection mold cooling system purpose is to ensure uniform cooling of the molded product and then eject the product out within a short period of time. The layout of the cooling channel plays an important role in the injection molding quality as well as the production cycle (cost) of a product.

  • Influence on Quality: During the injection molding process, the cooling channel is used to control mold temperature, of which the fluctuation has a direct influence on product shrinkage, deformation, dimensional stability, mechanical strength, residue cracks and surface quality, etc. Mainly include: surface glossiness, residue stress, crystallinity and thermal flexure.
  • Influence on Production Cycle: An injection molding cycle is mainly composed of the following steps. Reducing the cooling time means an improvement in the injection molding efficiency.
