Micro injection molding: characterisation of cavity filling process (2011)

Abstract Based on reciprocating micro injection moldingmachine, this paper characterizes the influence of machineprocess parameters and its transition response fromvelocity control to pressure control (V-P transition) on themicro cavity filling process. The method of Design ofExperiment was employed to systematically andstatistically investigate the effect of machine parameters onactual cavity filling process, which was described by thedefined process characteristic values (PCVs). Thestatistical analysis of the experiments indicated thatinjection speed was dominated factor affecting all PCVs incavity filling process. It was also found that the machineV-P transition have significant effects on cavity filling.
