Optimised cooling of injection mould tools cuts costs

A new system that automatically determines the optimum residual cooling time for injection moulding tools, developed by Kistler Instruments, can reduce cycle time by 20%, producing typical cost savings of 35,000 per annum per machine.

Working with the University of South Westphalia, Kistler ran tests on 700 moulding tools that proved the cycle time in 70% is at least 20% longer than necessary. The new technique uses mould cavity pressure and surface temperature of the moulded product to control the residual cooling time to ensure optimum product geometry and cooling time irrespective of process fluctuations.

Using the new Kistler Type 5155A Smart Charge Amplifier, the self-optimising demoulding system can be integrated into most injection moulding machines to provide automatic control of residual cooling time for maximum production efficiency and minimum wastage.
