Abstract

Artificially balancing melt delivery systems is a common practice in injection molding to compensate for filling imbalances. This artificial balance is attempted through tweaking runner and gate sizes or varying drop temperatures within melt delivery systems. These approaches at best only provide an extremely delicate pressure balance rather than address the root cause of the problem. This paper presents the results of a study that examined the robustness of artificial balancing and compares it to new advancements that address the problem that causes these imbalances.
