How to create a slide for mold design-injection mold slide design
Mechanical slides are preferred over hydraulic slides.
This will be determined at the initial mold review.
Mechanical slides should be located on operator or non-operator side and bottom.
1.Create a slide Check Sheet
l Is slide stroke adequate?
l Is the forward and back limit stopper adequate?
l Slide located on the top of the mold have strong slide locks and need to add spring.
l Is slide travel adequate to clear part?
l Is a positive slide lock designed in the tool?
l Are there wear plates under the slide?
l Are there wear plates in the lock blocks?
l Are limit switches present in case of "slide rebound?
l On slides wrapping around cores, is there adequate clearance between ejector devices and slide steel?
l Are there early return pins (.25" minimum diameter) provided when ejector devices are under slide steel?
l Are slides removable without disassembling the mold frame?
l Are grease grooves designed in sliding areas?
l Are slides locked against "blow back?
2.Slide name as shown.
3.Slide design requirements.
The slide is a moving part, we need to create shut off for slide and reduce friction damage.
How to create an angle pin for mold design-injection mold design
The length of the angle guide pin is dependent on slider travel distance.
The angle of an angle pin cannot be larger than 25°.
The angle of the Wedge needs to be 2-5 degrees larger than the angle of the angle pin
The best way to fix angle guide pins as show
