27/05/13: ALTERNATING TEMPERATURE TECHNOLOGY
1) Benefits of ATT for injection moulding processes
Variotherm mould temperature control has a variety of benefits that positively affect processes, part surfaces,part strength and the cost-efficiency of production processes.
• prolongs the holding pressure even in areas that are away from the gate and helps reduce injection pressure and clamping force,
• decreases internal stress during compression moulding of thick-wall optical components,
• enhances surface properties such as self-cleaning or antireflection coating, the reproduction of microstructures and nanostructures as well as the production of particularly smooth and high-grade glossy surfaces with piano effect,
• introduces a better homogeneity of glass fibres in technical parts,
• increases the welding time for melt fronts and prevents weld lines,
• reduces the risk of warpage caused by shrinkage and improves the dimensional stability and consistency of injection moulded parts and
• cuts cycle times thanks to longer wall contact of melt agglomerations with the result of an intensified cooling action.
2) Benefits of ATT for processing fibre-reinforced
Variotherm mould temperature control also has a variety of benefits that positively affect the process, part stability, surface quality and cost-efficiency of thermoset processing and composite structure production. It cuts cycle times by optimizing the process stages thanks to faster curing and subsequent cooling. wall contact of melt agglomerations with the result of an intensified cooling action.
