Definition: Computer generated analysis of plastic resin flow within a runner, gate and cavity of a plastic injection mold.
A pretty simple definition for a program that analyzes all critical functional areas of plastic product designs, reports potential failures and provides an analysis of other vital criteria like fill time, flow, pressures, temperatures, weld lines, sink marks, cooling and warp just to mention a few.
At Midwest, Mold Flow has become a vital component in the building of plastic injection molds. Due in part to the positive impacts it has had by heading off part failures before first tryout, improving cycle times and increasing productivity at plant level for our customer base.
A Mold Flow analysis for fill and pack is performed on each new tool built at Midwest Mold to help assure you of receiving “Success At The Press”.
