2 NAUTILUS IS A PROGRAM THAT HELPS IN THE EVALUATION, ANALYSIS, DEVELOPMENT AND DOCUMENTATION OF THE INJECTION MOLDING PROCESS. THE SOFTWARE ALSO HAS A COMPLETE DESIGN OF EXPERIMENTS MODULE THAT IS CUSTOMIZED FOR INJECTION MOLDING SUHAS KULKARNI FIMMTECH

3 BENEFITS OF USING THE TECHNIQUES: ESTABLISHED PROCESS IS ROBUST PROCESS WILL BE A ‘NO OR LITTLE ATTENTION REQUIRED’ PROCESS WILL DETERMINE THE FASTEST CYCLE TIME POSSIBLE LESS SCRAP AT STARTUP LESS SCRAP DURING PRODUCTION IMPROVED PART QUALITY AND PROCESS CAPABILITY ABOVE FACTORS INCREASE THE BOTTOM LINE PROFITS! SUHAS KULKARNI FIMMTECH

4 3 CASE STUDIES SUHAS KULKARNI FIMMTECH

5 CASE STUDY 1 – CONSUMER PRODUCT Part and MoldIrrigation Body – 32 Cavity Hot Runner Status Diameter closer to LSL with CpK < 1.0 Length closer to LSL Cycle Time = 46 seconds Target Diameter to be closer nominal Length to be closer to nominal Diameter and Length CpK ≥ 2.0 Cycle time = 38 seconds Analysis Via Scientific Molding and DOE it was found that higher pack pressures helped increase the dimensions Machine tonnage was not sufficient to prevent flash DOE showed cooling time did not have significant effect on the part dimensions. Actions Mold moved to a higher tonnage machine Process re-established using Scientific Molding and DOE Achievements Diameter and Length in spec and closer to nominal Diameter and Length CpK>2.0 Cycle Time = 35 seconds

6 CASE STUDY 2 – AUTOMOTIVE PRODUCT Part and MoldAutomotive Connector – 4 Cavity Mold Status Shroud Dimension in the center lower than LSL Shroud Walls not parallel to each other Cycle time was 38 seconds Target Shroud Dimension to be at nominal Shroud walls to be parallel to each other Cycle time of 32 seconds Analysis Shroud was closer to the end of fill Shroud thickness was relatively smaller compared to the rest of the part. Shroud was not sufficiently packed out Actions A Gate seal study using Scientific Molding showed the gate froze off too quick. The gate was opened up. DOE showed the shroud dimension could be improved up to half of what was required. The steel in the shroud area was contoured to compensate for the warp Achievements Shroud dimension and parallelism were in spec Cycle Time of 32 seconds was achieved Based on the DOE results, a new molding screw with a different design was installed and cycle time of 29 sec was achieved

7 CASE STUDY 3 – MEDICAL PRODUCT Part and MoldSurgical Clip – 16 Cavity Hot Runner Mold Status Part Length was over the LSL Mold was not steel safe Cycle time = 24 seconds Black streaks were found on the molded part Target Part Length to be closer to Nominal Cycle Time = 15 seconds No Black Streaks Analysis Part was too thick, needed extra time to cool Residence time in hot runner was too high Actions Scientific Molding and DOE was done to understand the effect of the process on the part quality Part was cored out to reduce the thick section. Scientific Molding and DOE were redone. Achievements New thinner part thickness helped to run the mold at lower cooling times therefore achieving a cycle time of 12 seconds Part length was closer to nominal with CpK values = ~ 4.0 With faster cycle, the residence time in the hot runner manifold reduced and the black specs were eliminated.
