The efficiency of mold cooling circuits is critical to a stable process and the manufacture of high quality, dimensionally stable parts. With the System Cooling platform from AST Technology - a division of Progressive Components - molders now have the ability to monitor water flow and temperature circuits inside the mold.
"Cooling constitutes 60% of a mold's overall cycle time. That means it should be a factor we can harness to help reduce or control cycle times and stabilize part quality. System Cooling fills that role by monitoring every circuit in the mold individually."
