IMPROVEMENT OF INJECTION MOLDING MACHINE CAPACITY BY INTRUSION TECHNIQUE
Author(s): Abbass Mokhtarzadeh|Avraham Benatar
In plastics molding industry, there is always a tradeoff between investment for higher capacity machine and actual capacity requirement for particular component. If capacity of molding machine is little lower than the capacity that is actually required for molding the component, the technique called intrusion can be used. Hence, intrusion is a technique that allows molding a part that has a greater volume of plastics than the maximum capacity of the machineƒ??s injection unit. Such techniques could be used when molding heavy sections or when the shooting capacity of the machine is not adequate. The paper talks about systematic study of the technique and its effect on performance of polymer blends and composites.
