Medical Molds are Different

Presentation Overview

Designing molds for the Medical sector requires unique approaches. The Engineering team at Progressive, headquartered in the northern Illinois medical corridor, has gathered tips and approaches to share with others in mold design. 

Some of the key highlights includes: how to head off potential flash areas when running high MFI resins—LSR, Nylon, Medical-grade flex PVC; how to extend molding production between PM’s, while avoiding unscheduled mold stoppages; how to “Do the Math” on water flow, and learn tricks for sneaking water into crowded cores; and how to enable tooling performance visibility before the mold is built and run.​​​
