Essentials of a well-designed injection mold gate

A properly Injection Mold Gate Design will deliver a rapid, uniform, and preferably uni-directional mold filling pattern with a proper gate freeze-off time. Below are some tips for Injection Mold Gate Design

Gate location

The gate location should be at the thickest area of the part, preferably at a spot where the function and appearance of the part are not impaired. This leads the material to flow from the thickest areas to thinner areas to the thinnest areas and helps maintain the flow and packing paths. Gate location should be central so that flow lengths are equal to each extremity of the part. Numerical simulation of the molding process is […]
