Tips on filling of injection molding

Injection molding is a step that many molds need to go through. This step is divided into four stages, and filling is the first stage. This does not mean that filling is more important in the injection molding process. No one can be separated from the four stages. The following is mainly about filling.

First of all, we need to understand that filling is the first step of injection molding. It needs to work at the beginning of mold closure. Generally, filling can reach about 95%. Another saying is that the shorter the filling time is, the higher the molding efficiency will be. However, the injection molding time is affected by many factors. The filling is also divided into high-speed filling and low-speed filling. See the following for the specific differences.

(1) High speed: when filling at high speed, the shear rate is high. Due to the effect of shear thinning, the viscosity of plastic decreases, reducing the overall flow resistance; The local viscous heating effect will also make the thickness of the curing layer thinner. Therefore, in the flow control phase, the filling behavior often depends on the size of the volume to be filled. That is, in the flow control stage, due to high-speed filling, the shear thinning effect of the melt is often large, and the cooling effect of the thin wall is not obvious, so the effect of the rate is dominant.

(2) Low speed: when the thermal conductive filler is low, the shear rate is reduced, the local viscosity is relatively high, and the flow resistance is large. As the thermoplastic supplement speed is slow and the flow speed is relatively slow, the heat conduction effect is very good, and the heat is taken away quickly by the cold mold wall. A small amount of viscous heating phenomenon and a thick curing layer are added to further increase the flow resistance at the thin wall part.

In general, the strength of the weld line in the high temperature zone is relatively good, because under the high temperature, the polymer is more active and can intertwine with each other, and the melt temperature in the high temperature melt zone is similar, so the thermal properties are almost the same, and the strength of the weld zone can be increased. If it is in the low temperature zone, the strength will become worse.
