Dynamics that Affect the Shrinkage of Injection Molded Parts

As all mold engineers know, shrinkage is an unfortunate fact of life. All plastics shrink as they cool from viscous liquids to solids, and every type of plastic shrinks in a slightly different way. And while eliminating shrinkage is impossible, minimizing it is essential for molding parts accurately.

Mold Surface Finish Defects

Creating successful molded plastic components is never easy. When your project starts, much of the focus is on mechanical and functional criteria. Will the part work the way it is designed to? Will it serve its intended purpose? But even if you develop a mechanically sound and perfectly functioning part,
