How to Get the Most out of Your Cooling Design
Getting the most out of a cooling design involves figuring out how to get around obstacles such as melt delivery systems (hot runners, cold runners, gates), part ejection, and mold action (slides, lifters).
Making the investment in cooling simulation with a qualified, certified analyst will help you make better molds and will set up your customers to mold quality parts more consistently and efficiently. And that will help you win more business in the long run. Remember, it’s not just the placement of cooling lines that matters, it’s also important to get the circuiting right

While both hot runner and cold runner systems have their benefits, for design flexibility as well as reduced cycle times and costs, hot runner systems will probably be the better choice.
A quality hot runner system is one of the more important enhancements you can incorporate into a mold to improve molded part quality, reduce production times and remain price competitive.
