Consultancy offering vent analysis service

Comments Email Print
Process & Design Technologies LLC wants you to vent ... just do it properly. The consulting firm in Keno­sha, Wis., has patented an apparatus and method for checking mold venting. So now, for the first time, the firm offers the plastics industry venting analysis.

Vent sizes should be based on displacement volume of a mold cavity over time, not just on the likelihood of flash of the material being processed.

The company uses proprietary calculations to determine minimum venting for any part. Its vent-check device also can certify that vents have been installed, are functioning properly and are consistent from cavity to cavity.
