Cooling of hot spots in injection molds with carbon dioxide.
Manufacturers of injection-molded plastic parts face two key challenged. On the one hand, expectations surrounding surface quality and performance of molded parts are rising. And, on the other, productivity pressures are growing as operators look for ways to further reduce cycle times through accelerated cooling. Both of these challenges can be met by ensuring uniform temperature distribution on the mold cavity surface.
