Family Mold Injection Molding

Family molds are used by plastic processing companies to create various parts in a single mold. They can help lower total cost of production. Due to the complexity of the multiple cavities in a family mold, it requires expertise to handle the material's balance. Since the parts are molded using the same process, they need to be in the same size and weight to avoid getting damaged. However, in order to get the most out of the process, the operator must control the flow and velocity of the parts individually. The flow and volume of the cavity are controlled by the gate at each cavity. This means that the operator can control the filling speed, pack pressure, and time at each gate. for good family mold injection molding.

Family Mold Injection Molding Mold Design

A family mold made using this design can be made with various weights and volumes to test its capabilities with an electric valve gate system. The parts included in this design include a door panel, map pocket, and reinforcing bar. Engineers built a mold to process ABS and propylene in a machine with a clamping force of 10,000 kN. It was able to collect data about the filling process through pressure sensors installed in its cavities. The processor was able to obtain data about the filling process and the injection phases using pressure sensors installed in the cavity. This feature, which was used by engineers to test the effects of sequential injection molding, allowed the engineers to align the valves' opening positions to prevent the loss of pressure during the process. The resulting parts were produced in about 55 seconds.
