Process Standardization: History is Prologue

A good working definition of process standardization in plastic injection molding:  Creating a repeatable process with 100% efficiency that results in standardized products with little or zero scrap. Any real process requires consistent variables.  These include — but are not limited t0 fill time, peak pressure, barrel temperature and fill temperature.  Paying attention to such…

Gearing Up For Plastic Molding

Steel yourself: plastic is becoming increasingly more popular as a material for machine gears. In fact, in some gearing applications, plastic is even superior to metal!   Advances in polymers have made this all possible.  Industrial designers have a better grasp of their benefits and limitations. Today, plastic gears can be manufactured by hobbing or stamping…
