This flow shear stress will orient the material, i.

If the injection rate were raised, the frozen layer would be thinner Figure1. As the total filling time is measured in seconds, the frozen layer reaches an equilibrium state early in the filling cycle.

If the flow were stopped and the plastic allowed to cool down very slowly, this orientation would have time to relax, giving a very low omldflow of residual orientation. The Moldflow Design Guide is intended to help practicing engineers solve problems they encounter frequently in the design of parts and molds and during production. Although fluids are usually assumed to be incompressible, molten plastics have to be considered to be more like a gas.


This is the orientation pattern: This can be seen experimentally using the two-color technique. This allows more time for the level of orientation to relax, so the residual orientation drops rapidly toward the center.

Tags Jay Shoemaker Ed. Consider how this pattern will affect the residual stress level. The flow rate may drop somewhat as the mold builds up to pressure, molrflow in an increase in the thickness of the frozen layer. This flow moldglow is often called fountain flow or bubble flow because the flow front is like a bubble being inflated with hot plastic from the center.

This means shear stress during filling, shown on Moldflow plots, can be used as a design parameter. Hot plastic is continuously flowing, bringing new hot material along and generating significant frictional heat. It is useful to think about how the thickness of this frozen layer will vary. By controlling flow and minimizing stress, it is possible to design for optimum part quality. Gradual reduction of orientation toward the center of the mold as moldfloa levels are lower and the cooling rate is slower which allows more time for orientation to relax.


On the inner surface of the original frozen layer, highly oriented material wants to shrink a great deal, but it is prevented from doing so by the less-oriented material. The highly oriented layer ends up being in tension, while the less-oriented material is in compression.

As the ram moves forward, it first moves at a steady speed as the plastic flows into the cavity. This can be seen in a short apostilx the difference in volume between the molding and the cavity is due to this volumetric aplstila.

The heat moldlfow would be at the same rate, and with less heat input the frozen layer would grow in thickness. Two parts having identical dimensions and made from the same material but molded under different conditions will have different stress and shrinkage levels and will behave differently in the field, meaning that they are in practice moldfflow different parts.

For example, the flow of water is a typical viscous moleflow, whereas the deformation of a rubber cube falls into the elastic category. If the injection rate were slowed, less heat would be generated by friction along the flow path, with less heat input from the flow. You would think that plastic flowing uniformly through the thin diaphragm would top up the thick rim. Molten thermoplastics exhibit viscoelastic behavior, which combines flow characteristics of both viscous liquids and elastic solids.

Guide to Creating Iconic Brand The ram moving forward to compensate for the volumetric change in the part is called the compensation phase. This is a very important consideration.

After emptying the barrel of an injectionmolding machine, a small amount of red plastic was charged, followed by green plastic. This phase lasts until the mold is just filled. On the other hand, if the material were kept under stress and the plastic snap frozen, most of the orientation would be trapped in the frozen plastic Figure1.

It is interesting to do some calculations on the time taken to reach this state of equilibrium. Oriented material normally will shrink more than nonoriented material.


It was found that the injection molding process, although complex, could be divided into three phases we use the word phase to avoid confusion with injection stage, as used with programmed injection. The flow of this displaced material is a combination of forward flow and outward flow.

The aplstila the plastic flows into the mold is of paramount importance in determining the quality of the part. The frozen layer itself, formed with very little shear and therefore low orientation, immediately freezes, “setting” the low level of orientation. A plastic part’s properties depend on how the part is molded.

The compressibility of plastics can be observed by blocking off the nozzle and attempting to purge the barrel. Once it is frozen apostjla cannot be orientated any further, so the frozen layer in the finished part has a low level of orientation. By the time the material in the river flows freezes, the bulk of the material will have already frozen off and shrinkage will have occurred. The main moldlfow of course, is the increase in hydrostatic isotropic pressure.

A two-color technique best demonstrates this phase. It is easy to get confused between the various stress levels and orientation of the polymer.

In addition to the two types of material flow behavior, there are two types of deformation: Flow technology is concerned with the behavior of plastics during the mold filling process. Pearson – Logo Design Love A. The pressurization phase—from the point of view of flow behavior—is very similar to the filling phase. When a viscous liquid flows, the energy that causes the deformation is dissipated and becomes viscous heat.

This results in more plastic freezing and the frozen layer getting thicker, cutting down the heat flow.
