Keeping your cool: create quality plastic injection moulded parts

The outbreak of the human coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has strained the supply chains for injection moulded parts significantly. As a result, the need for exceptional standards of quality control has never been greater; the key to the consistent production of high-quality plastic injection moulded parts is the way in which the polymer is cooled after it has filled the mould cavity.   High injection moulding reject rates  The uneven cooling of injection …
