Hasco Extends App with Innovative Calculator
Hasco extends its app with an innovative calculator that makes it possible to calculate the surface temperature of a thermal insulation sheet.
Hasco’s app is being extended with an innovative calculator for thermal insulating sheet. With this development, it is possible to calculate the surface temperature of a thermal insulation sheet. To determine the expected temperature, the user simply enters the relevant parameters such as the type of thermal insulating sheet, the sheet thickness and the mold temperature. The result is immediately available and can be used for designing the respective components.
In addition to this tool, the app also has a number of other core functions: material selection, conversion of hardness values, allocation of DIN/ISO tolerances to shafts and holes, design and dimensioning of locking cylinders, listing of pitch, outside, core or pitch diameters (thread tool), determination of milling data, such as advance speed, rpm or machining volume (cutting data calculator), as well as the simple calculation of the required heating performance, for example when heating up mold plates (cartridge heater calculator). All core functions can also be used offline.
The app supports not only moldmakers, technicians, designers and buyers, but it can also benefit teachers, students and pupils in training exercises.
Successful production of plastic components associated with the extrusion, injection and compression molding greatly depends on the mold material selection.
Understanding the effects of injection on the core, slide and associated components is critical to selecting the best side-action methods for a given application. This first of two articles will discuss the basic physics underlying all side-actions.
Turbulent-flow plastic baffles eliminate blow-by, significantly improving cooling and cycle times.
