Webinar: Solve Flash from the Plastics Point of View

This month’s topic, in our SimTech™ series of webinars, reviews the causes and solutions to that pesky part defect known as Flash. Flash occurs when the plastic flows beyond the mold’s parting line or between metal inserts. Flash can be on the parts or on the runner and can be in large areas or small. Molders should avoid flash in the mold. Even if the flash can be trimmed, flash damages the parting line of the mold. So how do you avoid this problem? In this webinar, our expert instructor will walk you through various scenarios, utilizing Paulson’s powerful injection molding machine simulator SimTech.  You’ll get an inside look into the process from the “plastic’s point of view” as the foundation to all molding strategies. This means, understanding the concept that all machine controls affect one or more of the four plastic processing variables. Paulson’s entire approach, from starting up a machine for a production run, to problem solving an existing run is to examine the situation from the plastics point of view. 

Key Take Aways Include:

  • Overview of plastic material properties

  • Understanding how the different machine controls affect the four plastic variables

  • The How, Why, and Solution of Flash Defects with a simulated demo using SimTech

  • How to use plastic behavior to your advantage when optimizing the molding


Take part in this FREE webinar to learn and apply molding techniques that will dramatically change the way you process.
