EPS FloTek provides a full line of engineering services. This would include Mold Filling, Packing, Cooling, Shrinkage, Warpage and Fiber Analysis. Our services are performed specifically to minimize or eliminate “cut-and-try” start-up costs, produce better quality parts, reduce cycle time, reduce scrap rate and generally create more profit for you and your company.
First stage filling. Conditions that occur during the initial flow of material into the cavity.
Second stage. Conditions that occur during the entire pack, hold and cool stage of the cycle.
Conditions that are produced during complete cycle based on channel design, flow conditions, water temperature and mold steel conductivity.
Shrinkage and Warpage
The final result of the combined conditions created from filling, packing and cooling.
Fiber Orientation – Short and Long
Identify conditions in Shrink & Warp of a molded part by using various percentage and length of Glass Fiber.
Multi-Component Molding (MCM)
Part Insert, Mold Components, Two Shot and Overmold
Advance Hot Runner
Model the full Hot Runner Manifold including conductive and non-conductive material to identify flow conditions
Gas Assist and Water Assist
