Thermal Pins Optimize Plastic Cooling

High precision die mold for casting automotive aluminium parts make with iron metal steel by lathe milling drilling and CNC machinery in the industrial factoryIn order to streamline enclosure cooling for a variety of applications, a thorough understanding of the technological needs and parameters must first be acquired. What’s more, not every industry is created equally, and as such, what might work for one application cannot certainly be guaranteed to work for the next. Indeed, whether the goal is increased yields, high thermal conductivity, or simply rapid cooling, our team is prepared to help you find your ideal cooling solution. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX takes a look at the need for rapid cooling in industries that utilize molds, and how a thermal pin might just be the answer.

Speeding Up Cool Down Time

For industries such as Food & Beverage, efficiency is key. Indeed, the expectation to be met is that a production line is kept up and running without falter, which means technological overheating can be a major detriment. More specifically, attention must be given to the process of utilizing plastic to create bottles and packaging, as heat is already involved in order to do so. That being said, each step of the process is important, and ensuring consistent function is a must.

To speed up the cool-down time required for the molding process, a thermal solution must be able to quickly and efficiently transfer waste heat away from the source. To do so, a high-temperature heat pipe known as a thermal pin may just be able to help.

How it Helps Injection and Blow Molds

Thermal pins are versatile in that they can be used for a variety of different molding equipment. More specifically, they can encourage effective plastic injection mold cooling as well as blow cooling. In smaller cores, thermal pins can provide heat transfer in areas previously inaccessible, essentially streamlining and optimizing the process. What’s more, the hollow heat conductor can uniformly cool the end of a blow pin, thus achieving rapid transfer and keeping the production line moving.

Faster Transfer for Rotational and Extrusion Devices

In addition to encouraging thermal transfer in more traditional ways, thermal pins can also be used to optimize both plastic rotational mold cooling and plastic extrusion mold cooling. The former involves heating the material more quickly and evenly in spite of variations in thickness, while the latter eliminates hot spots that can cause pulling, spotting, and sink marks. Indeed, the thermal pin offers a variety of ways to rapidly cool or evenly heat a given medium, and it can be custom-tailored to your specific needs.
