Looking At Plastic Rotational Mold Cooling

Bokeh on backgroundThermal management is a common consideration for industries different and alike, as each one relies heavily on technological applications and equipment in some form or another. Indeed, part of the maintenance and care process involves having an effective means of ridding waste heat, and very few technologies will work optimally without one. Still, some areas contain much more strict parameters than others, and ensuring your heat exchanger is capable of meeting these needs is crucial. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX takes a look at plastic mold industries as an example and explain how thermal pins lead to consistent cooling throughout.

Rapid Thermal Dispersion

In industries where plastic molding serves a major purpose – such as the Food & Beverage industry or material processing plants – a major detriment to production involves relatively long cycle times. This is a result of the process, as the plastic, polymer, and mold must be heated from room temperature throughout each cycle and subsequently cooled.

As expected, heating the materials quickly and effectively can be difficult due to different thermal conductivities and cooling times. For instance, if there are variations in mold thickness and plastic, the process can result in pulling, spotting, and sink marks.

Because of this, most rotational molds could benefit from a custom heat exchanger that helps regulate heating and cooling at an effective rate. Fortunately, our team is ready to help with our custom thermal pin heat exchangers, benefitting a number of industries through increased cycle times and yield.

Even Cooling Throughout

Another major consideration when assessing adequate plastic rotational mold cooling includes the ability to heat and cool the mold in an even manner. Just like tasks such as painting a picture or cooking, rushing through the process can lead to major blemishes and sloppy finishes. When it comes to mold heating and cooling, if the material is heated to an unnecessarily high temperature, it can damage the plastic and the mold, resulting in an uneven finished product.

Noren’s custom thermal pins have the ability to transfer thermal energy in a uniform manner that warms the plastic faster and more evenly. What’s more, they are designed to accomplish this despite variations in mold thickness, resulting in higher quality yields and increased cycle times.
