shorter cycle time
Our customer Denso needed to improve the performance of sprue bushing on one of the IM which, operates on a cold runner system with 4x cavities and produces thin parts for dashboard components.
Steel made sprue without conformal cooling was limiting the cycle time improvements, as it was not cooling down quick enough.
Sprue cooldown time was reduced from 20 seconds to 15 seconds, resulting in a 14% overall cycle time reduction, from 36 sec to 31 sec.
