ACROLAB PROVIDES COMPREHENSIVE SUPPORT ON ALL ASPECTS OF THERMAL DESIGN
Mold heat up can take substantially more time when working with deep draw molds since these molds may require the addition of heaters in the retainer plate. There should be, at minimum, one thermocouple to control each half of the mold. In larger molds, it becomes necessary to have more than one thermocouple in each half of the mold.
Acrolab is typically brought in early in the mold design phase providing thermal engineering support to the design team, as well as to deliver recommendations on heater placement, thermocouple placement, zone configuration and Isobar placement, resulting in greater control and a more uniform mold temperature. Thermocouple placement is critical to the overall success of the thermal design of the mold, Acrolab provides comprehensive support to its clients on all aspects of thermal design, including full heating system designs, electrical schematics, pre-wired mold boxes, cable and control panels.
