How To Solve The Deformation Problem of Flat Injection Molded Parts?

Today, we talk about the tips for solving the deformation problem of flat injection molded parts.

The area of flat injection molded parts is large, and the shrinkage is also large. The molecular orientation of large injection molded parts is extremely serious, and the cooling of the injection mold is also uneven, which makes the shrinkage rate of the injection molded parts in all directions appear inconsistent, resulting in the deformation and distortion of the thin, large flat injection molded parts easily.

Sometimes there is a support bone on one side of the large plane injection molded part, and the injection molded part must be bent toward the side with the bone at this time.

To completely solve the problem of deformation of large flat injection molded parts is indeed a difficult problem, we have summarized some more effective measures to improve the problem of deformation in production.

Below are the 4 tips for solving the deformation problem of flat injection molded parts.

  1. Change the mold into a multi-point entry (usually three plates mold), 24 amp machine above the large plane injection molding parts better to achieve more than 4 points. This can reduce the degree of molecular orientation arrangement and reduce the gap of inconsistent shrinkage in all directions.
  2. Properly increase the mold temperature, ABS material is usually kept above 60 ℃, in order to reduce the cooling rate of the flat injection molded parts, reduce the temperature difference deformation caused by the transition of the cooling, and can reduce the degree of molecular orientation.
  3. The most important one is to increase the injection or holding pressure, and greatly extend the injection or holding time, so that the size of the flat injection molded part will increase, reduce its shrinkage, and the degree of deformation will be significantly improved. Therefore, extending the injection or holding time (such as extending 10 to 15 seconds) has become an important tool to solve the deformation problem.
  4. If the above three measures have not achieved the desired effect, the only way to take out of the mold is to set. Because the general use is not very good, so a little skill is needed.

First of all, the flat injection molded parts should be taken out of the mold early, and then, taking advantage of the fact that they are still in the state of several tens of degrees high temperature (should still be very hot, this is very critical), put them on the workbench and use the fixture to set the shape, the key is to set the fixture design needs to be appropriate.

At the same time, we should also consider the rebound degree of the injection molded parts, usually 12 hours after the rebound will basically stop, and the lower the temperature out of the mold, the greater the rebound amount. As the saying goes, the overkill must be corrected, so the amount of overpressure should be studied during production.
