Plastic Mold Cooling For Material Processing

Industrial centrifuge for plastic granulesIn industries such as material processing where cycle times and consistent cooling are a must, a custom heat exchanger such as a thermal pin can be of great use. Indeed, many companies utilize plastic cooling capabilities in order to create a host of items to house or package their primary goods, whereas others operate solely for the production of plastic bins, containers, and other items. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX investigates the need for consistent cooling capabilities in material processing and how our thermal pin heat exchangers can help.

Highly Specific Processes

One of the major considerations that causes plastic cooling to stand out with respect to the needs of other industries includes the function of rapidly heating material and then cooling it without causing blemishes such as sink marks, pulling, or spotting to occur. Indeed, these results can arise from overheating, heating too rapidly, or not heating the material enough.

Although it might seem as though the solution is to heat the material to a higher temperature, bear in mind that there is a thin line between ideal and damaged goods. Because these processes are so highly specific, it is important to practice adequate plastic thermal management.

You see, plastic mold cooling not only requires the material to be heating to a certain malleable degree, but to be subsequently cooled soon thereafter. If the process is rushed, the results will be sub-par. Moreover, this will require the company to restart the process, wasting precious time, effort, and resources.

Multiple Options for Your Needs

When it comes to working with plastics, there is no doubt variation in each process. For example, some businesses may specialize in a specific type of plastic product, requiring the assistance of a specific plastic molding style. Plastic injection mold cooling, for instance, demands reaching areas of the mold previously inaccessible to water cooling, and can also allow you to draw heat from the plastic to the mold base. In other words, it helps to rapidly cool your product and allow for a decrease in cycle times. Contact our team to learn more.

High-Performance Solutions

In addition to a reduction in cycle times, custom solutions such as a thermal pin heat exchanger can be tailored to meet your specific needs, including coming in a variety of sizes to best adhere to your application’s needs. These high-temperature heat pipe cores help speed up cool down times so as to optimize your manufacturing capabilities.
