Molding Questions or Challenges?
The size and shape of the gates used in mold making are often not given the attention they deserve. Randy Kerkstra believes that many of the common assumptions about gate geometry should be challenged. In his recent article on Plastics Technology (http://www.ptonline.com), he explains how he learned about gating and runners when he transitioned from tooling to the molding floor.
This article really goes in depth on several of the factors and considerations of Gate Geometry. You can read the entire article here: The Importance of Gate Geometry

Randy Kerkstra has continued his series on Hydraulics on moldmakingtechnology.com, and this article focuses on how to size a hydraulic cylinder. In true Randy style, he broke it down into 3 easy to understand steps:
- Understand the maximum plastics pressure to calculate the the plastics pressure the cavity surface area will have on the component.
- Accurately calculate the the cavity surface that is on the surface area of the component.
- Determine the bore size of your cylinder.
He goes on to give more detail on each step, and also gives an example on how to size it. You can read the entire article here: The Designer’s Edge: How to Correctly Size a Hydraulic Cylinder
Texture is an area within injection molding that is often poorly understood, and rarely addressed. In this recent article on Plastics Technology, Randy takes the issue head on, dispelling many common myths and explaining the various factors of gloss and texture. read more…

Nano Mold Coating has performed as advertised. We have been using it for about nine months now and have had success in our applications. I have been in this industry for 25 years and have tried numerous products that make claims which don’t hold up; it is a nice change to use a product that actually works as claimed.Ray S.
