In the injection molding of injection molds, cracks in plastic products are a very common problem. So, what should we do to eliminate the cracks in injection mold products?
Causes of cracks in plastic products
- 1. Residual stress (oversaturated mode) caused by molding setting conditions;
- 2. Residual stress occurring during demoulding;
- 3. Stress concentration caused by the shape of the product;
- 4. Error caused by thermal expansion of the same insert;
- 5. Deterioration of materials.
- 1. The metal inserts are pre-heated to relieve the residual stress during forming. For the same principle, it is also a method to replace the inserts with annealing after forming
- 2. Among the molding setting conditions, the measure of reducing injection pressure is the most effective;
- 3. If the demolding pins are balanced separately, a larger force is added to the demolding.
Solution to eliminate cracks in injection mold products
- 1. Instant: increase the temperature of the barrel, reduce the injection pressure, and reduce the demolding speed;
- 2. Short-term: improve the mold cavity finish;
- 3. Long-term: The release angle should be sufficient, the release pins should be balanced, the product should not be designed with sharp angles, and the thickness of the product should be avoided as much as possible.
- 1. Because polycarbonate (PC) PVC and other materials are easy to stick to the chrome layer of the mold, especially in the corners become inverted cones, so pay attention;
- 2. Polycarbonate (PC) is prone to cracks in the mold insert. In such cases, it is better to add reinforced glass fibers to the material.
