Mold validation stages
Does the mold work? Activities during this phase relate to the validation of the injection mold’s mechanics.
The mold is mounted into the press and dry-cycled (no resin is injected) to ensure it opens and closes normally at operational temperature. The water temperature used is typically the mid-point of the chosen resin’s recommended range, and the temperature delta between the mold halves is set to zero. This facilitates basic operational checks for the ejection system, any mechanical movements/actions and shutoffs.
If the mold is functioning properly, the procedure continues, using the specified material. This allows checks for the proper function of the resin delivery system, manifold system and venting of the mold.
The part geometries of the mold can now be assessed with a basic inspection of the molded part for burns, shorts, flash, gate vestige, pin push, blemishes and more—basically any visual defects. If all goes well or once any problem areas have been identified and corrected, the process moves to phase 2.
Molding validation stages
Does the mold produce a good part? Executed properly, this phase begins the qualification process and becomes a scientific mold study “one validated step at a time,” per customer specifications.
While the sampling press may often be a different model and slightly different size (screw/barrel/clamp) than the projected production press, it can still be used to help define the eventual production process.
It is critical that each step is executed and documented individually in order to arrive at a best-practices scenario. Every element of the process (injection pressure, fill time, hold time, cooling) should be checked to determine its highest and lowest settings in order to make a part qualified to the customer’s performance and aesthetic requirements. A qualified part is one that falls within the range of all critical design tolerances, has the specified surface attributes, and maintains part integrity and stability during any functional tests, as determined by the customer.
Master the injection molding technology’s basic principles and learn more tips and experience, you will save you time and cut costs.
thanks for sharing your experience on injection molding, I am an injection molding engineer, I will share more about injection molding technology soon
hi coman, you are welcome any time
this is really a perfect injection molding process, as an injection mold engineer, I always do like this.
actually we always do like this, it works! also when I feel free, I will some experience about molding a perfect sample here
our company is a professional injection molding company with various specification’s injection molding machines
Ι am an injection molding engineer, I would recommend this article to every injection mold engineer
your making process is very correct.
your experience about making a perfect molding sample is very helpful for my work
a perfect molding sample is made like this:-) I got it, thanks!
this article is worth recommending to our molding engineers
I think when you will mold a new sample for a new product, maybe you can understand this article well
I truly like to read this article. it helps me a lot, thanks!

I am glad to read an article like this, I agree you at all
good post and good sharing, I think in injection molding, experience is very important
I like this website very much, because it has a lot of useful information.
I agree your process at all, actually it is not easy to make a perfect molding sample for our customer
Greetings! Very helpful advice in this particular post! I mean it is the little changes that produce the biggest changes.
Thanks a lot for sharing!
as an injection molding engineer, I want to thank you for your summary
I think it depends on the situation, different product, different material, different processing condition. maybe the Processing method is different.
your suggestion on this issue is very useful, as a injection molding engineer, I learned something useful from this article
your experience on this issue is very useful for every molding engineer
your experience is perfect!
our injection molding engineers will be interested in this blog, I will recommend to them
The way you deal with the problem is worthy of study
every molding engineer will be interested in this article!
as a molding engineer, he should understand the whole molding process very well, then he can do a good job
This is a standard workflow, our injection molding engineer always do so
yes! this blog is very useful for some injection molding engineers
very useful article, I will recommend to our molding engineers
I think experience is very important, I mean it depends on your molding engineer
Wow, that’s what I was searching for, what a data! existing here
at this web site, thanks admin of this web page.
Hi there, after reading this amazing paragraph i am
too cheerful to share my know-how here with colleagues.
Remarkable things here. I’m very happy to look your article.
Thank you a lot and I am looking ahead to touch you.
Will you kindly drop me a mail?
if you have any question or suggestion, please feel free to contact us
At first, our molding engineer should do a special molding cycle to get a good mold sample, because sometimes, We need to balance some molding condition
An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who had been conducting a little research on this.
And he in fact ordered me breakfast because I found it
for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for
the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to talk about this subject here on your web site.
I am sure this post has touched all the internet viewers, its really really
pleasant paragraph on building up new website.
