Optimization of Plastic Injection Molding Process Parameters for Thin-Wall Plastics Injection Molding
The effects of the process parameters on the warpge and shrinkage of parts in different thickness are analyzed by Taguchi optimization method. Taguchi optimization method was used for exploiting mold analysis based on three level factorial designs. Orthogonal arrays of Taguchi, the signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio, the analysis of variance (ANOVA) are utilized to find the optimal levels and the effect of process parameters on warpage. It can be concluded that Taguchi method is suitable to solve the quality problem of the injection-molded thermoplastic parts.
