SPE Milwaukee Presents Progressive Components – Understanding Mold Cooling and it’s effects on Processing & Maintenacne @ Waukesha County Technical College, Room C-052
May 31 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Please join us, as we welcome Sujit Sheth, and Paul Moreau, from Progressive Components, for this live, in person event to discuss mold cooling and its effects on processing and maintenance. May 31st, 5:30-7:30 WCTC

The total cycle time for a mold is made up of a long cooling time, often up to 60% of the total cycle time. There are significant opportunities to better understand the impact that cooling has on the overall process, part quality, and mold function. Monitoring the flow and temperature through each circuit allows injection molders and mold makers to collect and analyze data to drive optimization and continuous improvement activities. Molders utilizing a process monitoring system can view and collect data related to coolant flow, temperature, and pressure with information recorded and time-stamped for historical tracking. Mold makers and tool room managers can utilize a testing station that analyzes the mold for flow capacity, leaks, and optimal process set points.
