Expert article in Kunststoffe magazine

The specialist magazines Kunststoffe and Kunststoffe international (10/2021), published by Hanser-Verlag, provide an in-depth practice-based insight into the relationship between feed speed, injection volume and filling time – and how these factors correlate with injection unit performance.

Straightforward rules of thumb based on shot volume and filling time can be used to calculate the injection volume flow rate and select an injection unit that is appropriate for this. Dr Duffner also makes a distinction between machines designed for endurance and those designed for peak performance.
