Plastic Extrusion Mold Cooling Needs

Blown film extrusion plastic bag making machine.When it comes to your technology and means for production, ensuring optimal function goes a long way. After all, issues such as break down, electrical fires, and even simply overheating can significantly cost you in terms of productivity and more. Indeed, regardless of your industry, taking care of your machines and equipment is optimal for function. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX will take a look at businesses that utilize extrusion to force plastic mold cooling, and how our thermal pins can help accomplish this task effectively.

The Need for Rapid Cooling

In businesses that utilize molds to mass-produce plastic items, quick cycles, and efficient productivity are essential for staying ahead of the curve. The ability to heat the material at a fast rate and then subsequently cool it as well is critical to the process.

In order to increase production, one might conclude that heating the material to a higher temperature can aid the process greatly, however, there is a threshold at which this method creates more issues than it solves. Indeed, this can lead to the formation of hot spots, which then can cause spotting, pulling, and sink marks.

In order to keep the line running optimally and efficiently, a custom thermal solution such as a thermal pin is needed to help evenly heat and cool the plastic. With respect to forced cooling, thermal pins help remove the excess heat relatively quickly, subsequently reducing cycle times and increasing your yields.

Effective Extrusion Speeds

When it comes to forced cooling, thermal pins can help enhance the efficiency and quality of your yields through plastic extrusion mold cooling. Indeed, extrusion involves forcing the melted plastic through the opening and into the mold itself. If the material is forced too slowly, it will impact your cycle times. If it is extruded too quickly, however, complications such as uneven heating and bubbles can form.

To maximize your production of quality products, a thermal pin can help through transferring heat at a rapid rate but at an even pace. In other words, they can help eliminate hot spots, thus preventing the formation of pulling, spotting, and sink marks. To learn more about this process, reach out to our team today.

Avoiding Hot Spots

It is one thing to increase your yields, but to do so effectively and produce quality plastics at the same time can be more difficult to achieve than you might think. Ask our team about the science behind plastic extrusion mold cooling and how our thermal pin heat exchangers can help.
