Beaumont Injection Molding Article Among Top 3 Most Viewed Of 2013 In National Trade Publication
Pioneer and world leader in in-mold rheological control technologies garners attention with new approaches for evaluating fill times for injection molding
Authored by Beaumont’s John Beaumont http://beaumontinc.com/
“One of the important process parameters to establish and record for any injection molded part is its injection or fill time,” said Beaumont. “Our research revealed the limitations of popularly taught methods of establishing this critical parameter.”
“The successful production of plastics parts is heavily dependent on process techniques applied by an injection molder,” said Beaumont. “As part of our ongoing research, we discovered a significant flaw in one of the most widely taught and practiced molding methods. This discovery should help break the industry from a regimented process and spur development of new, more scientifically based methods.”
President and CEO of Beaumont Technologies, Beaumont also is a professor and former chairman of the Plastics Engineering Technology program at Penn State Erie. He founded the university’s Plastics CAE Center and has written several books, including the Runner and Gating Handbook and Successful Injection Molding.
