Paper Title:
Investigation of Mold Temperature Affecting on Shrinkage of Rapid Heat Cycle Molding Plastic Part
  Abstract

In order to further investigate the influence of mold temperature in rapid heat cycle molding on shrinkage of plastic past, a self-developed vehicle-used blue-tooth front shell high-gloss mold and an auxiliary device for controlling the mold temperature were employed in experiments. And the effect of the other parameters on shrinkage of part with fixed or changed mold temperature conditions was also studied. Results reveal that the shrinkage of RHCM part is reduced obviously compared with a conventional one, decreasing as quasi-linear with mold temperature increased gradually. At same mold temperature conditions, packing pressure, followed by packing time, is the most significant parameter on shrinkage of part, while cooling time has almost no impact on it. Melt temperature and injection pressure effecting on shrinkage of part exists a critical value, near the thermal deformation temperature of plastic. When mold temperature is set below this temperature, injection pressure has more significant than melt temperature, but it is the opposite. With being elevated gradually of mold temperature, shrinkage of part shows a slight decrease trend under same melt temperature and injecting pressure. While it fluctuates as a “V” shape with a narrow range under same packing pressure, packing time and cooling time presumed conditions, and reaches the minimum near the thermal deformation temperature of plastic.
