Sodick & Friends - Beaumont on Aug 19

What is Flow Grouping – and Why Should You Care?

How do we utilize Flow Grouping to determine the source of fill imbalances in multi-cavity molds? How can you use Flow Grouping to get to the root cause of your imbalances faster?

Beaumont’s Kevin Rottinghaus will answer these questions and more as he dives into the science behind Flow Grouping and how you can properly analyze the filling balance in your multi-cavity molds – whether you are utilizing hot runners or cold runners.

By the end of this webinar you should be able to answer the question: Is it Steel or is it Shear?

Topics will include:

  1. Plastic flow fundamentals

  2. How to break down a multi-cavity mold into flow groups

  3. How to recognize steel imbalances

  4. How to recognize shear-induced imbalances

  5. How to download FREE software to make this process easier for you!
