Thermal Analysis of a Hot Runner System in Injection Mold
The influence of the heat loss of hot runner on the stability of mold injecting process was analyzed. Determine the lost power of heating elements by establishing of hot runner system. Using ANSYS codes to calculate the temperature control equations and get the temperature distribution of hot runner plate. Make the structural arrangement of heating pipes and thermocouples better and ensure thermal equilibrium of the hot runner system by analyzing the temperature field.
