Shibaura Machine is Making It Simple to Minimize Injection Molding Defects
ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, November 30, 2021 - Small mistakes in injection molding can add up to costing companies big money when it comes to time and product lost. Understanding design guidelines and best practices help in preventing defects, but not all molders come with the same knowledge and expertise.
Shibaura Machine’s V70 controller on the SXIII all-electric injection molding machine series offers molders of all experience levels the opportunity to minimize defects. With the Molding Defect Guide on the V70 controller, molders will not only understand the causes of common defects, but know exactly what measures to take in order to fix them.
Fix Defects Faster in Injection Molding
The Molding Defect Guide offers valuable information relating to common injection molding defects. Particularly useful for inexperienced molders, this on-board troubleshooting guide displays the cause of molding defects and their countermeasures.
The tools and on-board support from the V70 controller provide information at the molder's fingertips. Potentially offering a reduction in scrap, improvements in run time, and being able to fix quality issues quicker than before are just several of the benefits that come with the tools provided with the Molding Defect Guide.
The 14 defects described within the guide are shown below.
For example, if the part is not completely filled, it will explain the cause and offer appropriate measures to take in order to fix this molding defect.
