Cover for Injection Mold Design Engineering. Injection Mold Design Engineering. Book • 2nd Edition • Authors: 5 - Cavity Filling Analysis and Design. Injection Mold Design Engineering by David O. Kazmer, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. Hello Can anyone recommend a good Text book on injection mold designing? There are about eight of them that show up online right away.

1st Edition

Draft: Required in both the core and cavity for easy ejection of the finished component Shrinkage allowance: Depends on shrinkage property of material core and cavity size Cooling circuit: In order to reduce the cycle time, water circulates through holes drilled in both the core and cavity plates.

Ejection gap: The gap between the ejector plate face and core back plate face should hold dimension within the core.

It must allow component to be fully removed from the mold. Air vents: Removes gases entrapped between core and cavity usually less than 0. Mold polishing: The core, cavity, runner and sprue should have good surface finish and should be polished along material flow direction.

The material enters the mold through the sprue bush. Top plate—It is used to clamp the top half of the mold to the moving half of the molding machine and is usually made of mild steel. Cavity plate—The plate used to create a cavity via a gap that will be filled with the plastic material and form the plastic component. Usually made of mild steel. Core plate—The core plate projects into the cavity place and creates hollow portions in the plastic component.

This core plate is usually made of hardened hot die P20 steel without hardening after core machining. Sprue puller pin—The sprue puller pin pulls the sprue from the sprue bush. It is usually made of mild steel. Guide pillar and guide bush—The guide pillar and guide bush align the fixed and moving halves of a mold in each cycle.

The material cases are usually made of medium carbon steel and will have higher hardness. Ejector guide pillar and guide bush—These components ensure the alignment of the ejector assembly so that the ejector pins are not damaged.

The guide pillar typically has higher hardness than the guide bush. Ejector plate—This holds the ejector pins and is usually made of mild steel. Ejector back plate—It prevents the ejector pins from disengaging; usually of mild steel material.

Heel blocks—Provides a gap for the ejector assembly, so that the finished component ejects from the core. Bottom plate—Clamps the bottom half of the mold with the fixed half of the molding machine; usually made of mild steel.

Rest button—Supports the ejection assembly and reduces the area of contact between the ejection assembly and the bottom plate. It is most helpful when cleaning the injection molding machine, which is essential to ensure an "unmarked" finished component. Small foreign particles sticking to the bottom plate may cause ejection pins to project out from the core and result in ejection pin marks on the component. The core is the male part which forms the internal shape of molding.

The cavity is the female part which forms external shape of molding. Gate types[ edit ] The two main gate systems are manually trimmed gates and automatically trimmed gates. The following examples show where they are used: Sprue gate: Used for large components, the gate mark is visible in component and no runner is required.

Edge gate: Most suitable for square, rectangular components Ring gate: Most suitable for cylindrical components to eliminate weld line defect Diaphragm gate: Most suitable for hollow, cylindrical components Tab gate: Most suitable for solid, thick components Submarine gate: Used when auto de-gating is required to reduce cycle time Reverse taper sprue gate Pin gate : Generally used in three plate molds. Once the molten thermoplastic flows through the runner system it reaches the cavity set through an interface called the gate.

The mold gate restricts and controls the flow of plastic into the mold.

Passage through the gate causes a frictional rise in material temperature, extending the materials flow into the mold. To remove trapped air and process gases during injection, a mold venting system is needed.

The number and size of the vents are determined by part geometry, material type, viscosity, and the rate of injection.

These vents are ground on the parting line of the mold. The hot thermoplastic remains in the mold under pressure until it cools. This cooling is usually achieved by water circulating in channels machined into the mold.

Proper cooling contributes to controlled part shrinkage, part strength and quality. Overall, the speed of the injection molding cycle is controlled by the efficiency of the cooling system.

Book Mold Tooling

Once the parts are sufficiently cooled and solidified, the mold opens and an ejector system, usually in the form of knockout pins, is used to aid in part ejection. Ejector systems are mounted on the ejection side of the mold and are typically activated by pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders. In addition to knockout pins, other ejector methods include stripper plates, stripper rings, and air pressure ejection. Sometimes a sprue puller is used to remove molded plastic from the sprue bushing as the part is ejected.

Component Design Guidelines.As indicated, the lower production quantity may be satisfied with a two cavity, cold runner mold. It should be understood that this textbook purposefully investigates the prevalent and fundamental aspects of injection mold engineering.

Reading Assignment

For instance, the second design might be required if a handle were added to the cup, or if it was necessary to move the parting line to a location away from the top lip. Sprue puller pin—The sprue puller pin pulls the sprue from the sprue bush. To reduce uncertainty related to pricing and capability, many prospective customers maintain a list of qualified suppliers, who tend to provide faster turn-around, more uniform quality, and better pricing across multiple projects.

Ejection gap: The gap between the ejector plate face and core back plate face should hold dimension within the core. The topics are presented in a top-down manner, beginning with introductory definitions and the big picture before proceeding to layout and detailed design of molds. Alignment[ edit ] Injection molds are designed as two halves, a core half and a cavity half in order to eject the component. The core is the male part which forms the internal shape of molding.
