The ram moving forward to compensate for the volumetric change in the part is called the compensation phase. It is easy to get confused between the various stress levels and orientation of the polymer. Most of the stress in plastic parts occurs during the compensation phase. This means shear stress during filling, shown on Moldflow plots, can be used as a design parameter.

In practice, the plastic during the compensation phase flows in rivers that spread out like a delta, as illustrated in Figure1.

The result is that equilibrium is reached very quickly, mlldflow in a time measured in a few tenths of a second. Oriented material normally will shrink more than nonoriented material. A Resource for Plastics Engineers. A two-color technique best demonstrates this phase. When more material enters the mold, it flows along a channel lined with these frozen walls of plastic, illustrated in Figure1. It is useful to think about how the thickness of this frozen layer will vary.

The frozen layer itself, formed with very little shear and therefore low orientation, immediately freezes, “setting” the low level of orientation. On the other hand, if apostilaa material were kept under stress and the plastic snap frozen, most of the orientation would be trapped in the frozen plastic Figure1.

If, for example, one part of the melt is slightly hotter than the rest, then the plastic flow in that area will be slightly greater, bringing hotter material into the area and maintaining the temperature.

The flow of this displaced material is a combination of forward flow and outward flow. On the inner surface of the original frozen layer, highly oriented material wants to shrink a great deal, but it is prevented from doing so by the less-oriented material. The compressibility of plastics can be observed by blocking off the nozzle and attempting to purge the barrel. This can be seen in a short moldglow the difference in volume between apostilz molding and the cavity is due to this volumetric change.


It is critical for engineers in the plastics field to have access to flow analyses and their interpretations, wpostila the simulation of cooling and warp effects, to aid in the successful design and manufacture of parts and molds.

Compensating flow is unstable.

This phase lasts until the mold is just filled. This is a very important consideration. The way the plastic flows into the mold is of paramount importance in determining the quality of the part. This was investigated using a centrally gated mold shaped like a dinner plate with a thick rim around the outside as shown in Figure1. The apoostila will jump forward when the pressure is applied, but will spring back when the pressure is released.


The frozen layer is formed by the flow front inflating, and so is subject to only a low shear stress and, therefore, has a very low level of molecular orientation. On the other hand, when an elastic solid. The book provides an overview of the polymer flow behavior and the injection molding process, design principles to facilitate integrated part and mold design, and examples of how Moldflow design analysis technology can be used both to solve moldfllw and to optimize the design of part, mold, and the molding process itself.

By controlling flow and minimizing stress, it is possible to design for optimum part quality. You would think that plastic flowing uniformly through the thin diaphragm would top up the thick rim.

This must not be confused with shear rate, which is the rate of plastic sliding apostioa the next layer. If the injection rate were slowed, less heat would be generated by friction along the flow path, with less heat input from the flow. Flow technology is concerned with the behavior of plastics during the mold filling process. Once it is frozen it cannot be orientated any further, so the frozen layer in the finished part has a low level of orientation.

The heat loss would be at the same rate, and with less heat input the frozen layer would grow in thickness. A plastic part’s properties depend on how the part is molded.

It was found that the injection molding process, although complex, could be divided into three phases we use the word phase to avoid confusion with injection stage, as used with programmed injection. For example, the flow of water is a typical viscous flow, whereas the deformation of a rubber cube falls into the elastic category.


The actual rate of heat flow is very large in comparison with the small heat content of the plastic in the frozen layer. If the flow were stopped and the plastic allowed to cool down very slowly, this orientation would have time to relax, giving a very low level of residual orientation.

The pressurization phase—from the point of view of flow behavior—is very similar to the filling phase. Initially, the frozen layer is very thin, so heat is lost very rapidly. By the time the material in the river flows freezes, the bulk of the material will have already frozen off and shrinkage will have occurred.

Moldflow Design Guide

The first material to freeze off will shrink early in the cycle. After a time, the frozen layer will reach moldflod thickness such that the heat lost by conduction is equal to the heat input from plastic flow and frictional heating, i. In addition to the two types of material flow behavior, there are two types of deformation: However balanced the initial conditions, this natural instability will result in a river-type flow.

Consider the closed mold with the plastic front just starting to flow from the nozzle. Gradual reduction of orientation toward the center of the mold as stress levels are lower and the cooling rate is slower which allows more time for orientation to relax.

Today, the global imperative to drive down the moldfllw of manufacturing has led to the use of molding simulation as a cost optimization mlodflow rather than just as a design and problem avoidance tool. Now, consider what happens upstream.

This allows more time for the level of orientation to relax, so the residual orientation drops rapidly toward the center. This can be seen experimentally using the two-color technique.

The process of filling the mold can be distinctly analyzed with the ability to predict pressure, temperature, and moldfkow. Phases of Injection Molding5 at the outer edge molfdlow the plastic is frozen, rises to a maximum just inwards of the frozen layer, then drops toward the center, as shown in Figure1.
