Chinaplas: Copolymer POM grades target high load gear applications

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014 | Permalink

Shanghai, China-High load gear applications have traditionally turned to homopolymer grades of polyacetal (POM) resin. The latest copolymer offerings from Celanese (Dallas, TX), however, are said to offer sufficient mechanical properties for use in such applications. Tagging Options Domain:  All Sites read more

Chinaplas: Husky targets reduced variability in hot runners systems

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014 | Permalink

Shanghai, China-The focus at the Husky (Bolton, ON) stand at Chinaplas was reduced variability; in concrete terms precise temperature control, synchronized gate opening and closing, and thermal uniformity in hot runner systems. To realize the latter, Husky designers are now using thermal FEA (finite element analysis) to optimize each manifold, meaning the resin traveling to each cavity has an identical thermal history. This history is verified during final assembly. Tagging Options Domain:  All Sites read more
