What is Micro Injection Molding

Micro Injection molding ( micro-molding) is small & high-precision thermoplastic injection molding parts and components with tight tolerances ( 0.001mm to 0.005mm).  this type of micro injection molding parts is used in the medical industry, automotive, aerospace, and electronic industry, the microinjection mold is as same as standard injection mold that has sliders, lifter, but the precision and the tolerance are totally different.

Micro injection molding or Micro injection moulding that is the same meanings, No matter how you spell it, the micro-molding size is very small, from 2mm to 20mm, the most important thing to make good quality of micro molding parts is the tolerance and injection molding machine, must […]

Polyethylene is PE for short, which has the properties of softness, non-toxic, cheap, and easy to process. It is a kind of typical crystallographic polymer.

PE-LD has the lightest density in its own kind and is easy to ventilate and soak. It has good dielectric properties and chemical resistance properties, softness, elongation, impact force resistance. Its translucency is better than the middle and low LDPE but it has the bad performance of mechanical properties, which can apply for softness injection molding and extrusion molding.

POM (also called acetal) is polymerized by formaldehyde and other raw materials, etc. POM-H (Polyoxymethylene homopolymer), POM-K(Polyoxymethylene copolymer) are thermoplastic engineering plastic with high density and crystallinity. It has good physical, mechanical and chemical properties, especially excellent rub resistance.

POM Injection Molding Technology is a crystalline plastic with an obvious melting point. Once it reaches the melting point, the melt viscosity will rapidly decrease. When the temperature exceeds a certain limit or the melt is heated too long, it will cause decomposition. Copper is POM’s degradation catalyst, the areas contacting with POM melt should avoid the use of copper or copper materials.POM INJECTION MOLDING

Mold Cooling Channel Manufacturing

By |2019-08-30T21:21:51+08:00August 30th, 2019|Categories: Mold Cooling Channel Manufacturing, molds|Tags: , |Comments Off on Mold Cooling Channel Manufacturing

This manufacturing tip is for plastic injection molds that have round inserts with o-rings and cooling channel on the outside.

When we put the insert with the o-ring into the hole in the insert sometimes we damages the o-ring, because the edge in the cooling hole is too sharp and the edge cuts away a part of the o-ring and damaged the o-ring, to avoid this issue we need to add small chamfer to the edge of the cooling hole in the insert plate, when the o-ring comes to the cooling hole the o-ring will not be damaged since the edge area is smoothly.

Below red cycle area, the edge is too sharp, it will damage the […]

Polystyrene (PS, GPS) is commonly known as ordinary styrene hard plastic which is transparent and belongs to translucent plastic (with greater density than water, fragility).

The properties of PS include good optical performance 88%-92%, excellent electrical performance, easily molding and processing and good colorability. Its disadvantages include fragility, low temperature of heat-resisting, high requirements for processing and molding conditions (distinct Aging and great sensitivity to heat) weak acid resistance, easy to burn. If there is no fire source and it will burn continually with yellow color, thick black charcoal, blistering, and monosomy.

Viscosity is sensitive to the velocity of shear. With the increase of pressure, melt viscosity […]

The injection techniques of poly terephthalic acid alcohol ester (PET)

The chemical name of PET is poly terephthalic acid alcohol ester, also called polyester. At present, GF-PET is used by most clients. PET injection molding parts are mostly used in the bottle preform products

PET has a good rheological property in molten condition and pressure has more effects on viscosity than temperature does. Therefore, we change the rheological property mainly from the pressure.

Plastic drying

Due to PET macromolecule contains an aliphatic base, it has certain hydrophilicity. The aggregate is very sensitive to water when it’s at a high temperature. When the water content exceeds the limit, the molecular weight of the PET will drop during the processing, […]

In order to be able to think in the same way within SinereTech, and to be able to use dimensions that are suitable for all applications we have created the following guidelines. Those guidelines will be used by the calculation engineers as well as a base for our designers in case of any die casting mold project.

  1. Injection gate and overall layout.
    1. Generally, the injection gate will be placed along the longest side of the part and the injection gate cylinder will be on the closest distance to that side (runner will normally not go around the cavity like a banana).
    2. If sliders are used or if other factors may influence the placement of […]

When we manufacture the cavity side of the clamping plate, there are some dimensions that we need to control with some tolerances so that our standard mold components and other parts can fit well in the clamping plate.

For the locating pinholes, the tolerance should be H7 (0/+0.015mm)

The hole diameter for the locating ring, the tolerance should be ±0.02mm

The hole diameter for the Hot runner manifold support insert, the tolerance should be ±0.05mm

The height dimension for the air venting groove on the Hot runner manifold support insert, the tolerance should be ±0.01mm

The slot for the locating pin to the sprue bushing, the tolerance should be 0/+0.10mm
