The injection location represents the position where polymer is injected, enabling the software to simulate the flow pattern inside the mold cavity.
To mold the best part possible, you must identify the optimum injection location. This will create a balanced filling pattern by allowing the extremities of the mold to fill at the same time and under the same pressure. You must also select the number of injection locations required and their positions so that the volumetric shrinkage at the end of the flow is close to the design value.
Using the Gate Region Locator algorithm, if there are no injection locations specified, the Gate Location analysis will determine the best place for a single gate, given the selected material. If one or more injection locations already exist, the result suggests the best place for the next gate location given the selected material.
The injection location represents the position where polymer is injected, allowing the software to simulate the flow pattern inside the mold cavity.
This dialog is used to set the injection location coordinates exactly.
The positioning of injection locations greatly affects material orientation and part warpage.
Because each part is different, there are no specific rules for determining the number of polymer injection locations; however, there are some general factors that must be considered.
Because injection locations greatly influence the way in which the plastic flows into the mold cavity, their postioning directly affects part quality.
The injection location temperature moves toward the mold temperature during the packing and cooling phases because there is negligible flow from the barrel during these phases.
The injection time is the time it takes for the mold to fill completely.
