Getting the pressure right. Sometimes less is more!
A multitude of factors influence getting your part manufactured to perfection; not least the correct application of clamp force during the plastic injectionmolding production itself.
Mindful of the ultimate robustness of the part design, quality of material, and how well the mold has been designed and constructed, and with an objective of producing at scale when required, it's paramount to calculate the exact pressure that will provide force to counter all of the pressure that is applied from the injection unit, yet avoid the effects of applying excessive tonnage including burns, mold damage, or gloss level changes, all of which can result in waste and additional time and significant cost.
Far from a simple task, calculating the tonnage takes maths, understanding, and experience, as the amount of pressure is not only about the surface or cavity area, it's also key to determining the correct mechanism, location of force, and melt flow rate as this can impact on the overall pressure exerted.
With decades of experience in the injection molding industry, NS KUNSTSTOFFTECHNIK - CZ operates machinery ranging in tonnage from the most intricate to seriously industrial and has a level of understanding that’s second to none. Producing millions of parts for the auto world annually, there’s no margin for error. Perfection must be delivered time and again, and with NSK, that’s exactly what you can depend on.
