Speaker: Michael Durina, Md Plastics, Inc.

February 22 @ 5:30 am - March 18 @ 8:00 pm

Hosted by Cleveland

In order to make improvements to any process one must fully understand the deficiencies of the existing state of the art, in our case there are major deficiencies of the 70 year old reciprocating screw process used on 95% of Injection Molding machines utilized in the world. Melt Monitoring includes reading plastic melt temperature measured directly from the nozzle, applying advanced models to calculate the thermodynamic (P-V) work for development of a thermal viscosity template. Melt Preparation includes advanced plasticating screw designs to replace the aging GP screw and Melt Delivery includes modern innovative screw tip designs and shutoff nozzles to quickly/precisely displace the polymer melt.

Agenda:

  • Better melt homogenization from optimized melt preparation
  • Better melt delivery from controlling the melt pool
  • Better process transparency and control from melt temperature sensor measurements
