While a lot of attention is given in the injection molding industry to faster controllers and specialized processes, the fact remains that profitability in processing relies heavily on the design and the condition of the injection unit. Worn screws and barrels rob the industry of billions in revenue worldwide each year. Add to this the fact that general purpose screws are poorly designed for their primary purpose of achieving a homogeneous melt, non-return valves are inherently inconsistent, and injection unit specifications often do not provide the needed pressure to allow molders to operate competitively, and you have an area with immense potential for improvement. As usual, attention to detail in the fundamentals trumps flashy trade show marketing of “new” trends if only the industry will pay attention. This webinar outlines the problems with injection unit design and maintenance that the injection molding industry tolerates every day and discusses solutions.
