When working in the mold cooling business, rapid heating and cooling coupled with a quality finish is the combination needed to keep a company above the rest. Indeed, competitive markets mean shorter cycle times, and overall higher quality results matter tremendously, but it can be hard to find the perfect point in-between that achieves both factors. What’s more? Many processes tout the ability to accomplish your needs, but failing to take your parameters into consideration does not help you get the most from your applications. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX discusses the benefits of small solid cores in thermal pins, and how they help optimize your plastic injection mold cooling capabilities.
Rapid Cooling and Heating
It goes without saying that different industries contain their own unique set of parameters, needs that must be met, and overall objectives. Indeed, military equipment might focus on durability and consistency, whereas Food & Beverage workers might prioritize the ability to mass-package a variety of items. When it comes to plastic molding, the main focus consists of being able to rapidly heat and subsequently cool plastic to set in molds.
Because countless companies utilize plastic bottles and other creations for their own products, the demand for these items is high. In other words, these products must be created in a relatively short time frame in order for a parent company to stay ahead of the curve in the competitive market.
As you can imagine, striking a balance between short cycle times and quality products can be tricky, as the higher the temperature becomes to produce shorter cycle times, the more likely you are to experience pulling, spotting, and sink marks. Fortunately, that is where our thermal pin heat pipe cores come in to help.
The Function of Remote Water Channels
For plastic injection mold cooling, thermal pin heat exchangers can draw heat from the plastic being used into the mold base. Additionally, if your application utilizes water channels, the heat can be drawn to these remote water channels as well, allowing for rapid cooling in a more even manner. To learn more about this process and how our team can help, reach out to a Noren representative today.
More Accessible Areas
In addition to decreased cycle times and more even cooling, our custom thermal pin heat exchangers have the capacity to enable cooling in areas that were considered previously inaccessible to water cooling. What’s more? Our team works closely with you to discern which of our options would work best for your setup so that you are able to get the most from your plastic injection mold cooling capabilities.
