Viscosity has the greatest influence on part quality, yet many overlook this factor. Most of the injection molding technology today is focused on reaction times and closed loop systems. This webinar will review the common challenges molder's face today with material flow, closing of the check ring and what technologies will actually help with these issues, increasing your part quality and productivity.

Primary Topics:

  • Review of common material viscosity issues molders face today
  • Overview of current process monitoring controls and closed loop control
  • Learn about Smart Technology available today and the benefits to part quality, downtime, consistency
