Event Information

Title: Melt Preparation and Plastication


Properly preparing your material and understanding how it affects the injection molding process is vital to producing quality plastic parts. In this presentation, we will cover various aspects of melt preparation and plastication, including material data sheets, material drying, plastic melt temperature vs. barrel temperature, screw design and utilization, screw speed RPM vs circumferential speed, and back pressure optimization, and decompression. We will look at each one of these items using a systematic approach from the plastic’s point of view.
