TEKNOR COLOR COMPANY OFFERS INSTANT TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE FOR INJECTION MOLDERS

PAWTUCKET, RI., U.S.A., May 9, 2012: Teknor Color Company has republished a handy beside-the-press troubleshooting guide that provides injection molders with a prioritized checklist of remedies for common problems with part quality or processing. The guide is offered for free to anyone who requests a copy from Teknor Color.

First issued in 2005, the popular guide consists of a single laminated sheet containing a tabular grid showing possible relationships between 16 problems and 16 processing parameters. The remedies to be applied for any problem are indicated by color-coded icons representing changes to be made in certain parameters, and numbers in each icon indicate the order in which these actions should be taken.

Nine possible parameters, for example, are indicated as relevant to the problem of sink marks. The first suggested action is to adjust feed, the second to increase injection pressure, and so on to the ninth, which is to increase back pressure.

A picture of the guide is posted on the Teknor Color Company website at this link. A durable copy designed for use on the molding shop floor is available by contacting info@teknorcolor.com.
