Complimentary Machine Benchmarking Techniques for Velocity Capability and Machine Responsiveness During the Velocity to Pressure Control Phases


Additional injection molding machine benchmarking techniques will be explored for velocity capability or injection speed linearity and the ability to transfer from the velocity control to pressure control phases. With over 10 programmed injection response modes it is possible to relate the data to fully electric machines as well as vintage hydraulic machines. The data will be related to Scientific Molding and applying the data when running the mold in multiple sized all electric and vintage hydraulic machines.
