Danger of crushing
The safe distances as per DIN EN ISO 13857 must be observed.

1.4.9.1 Protective panelling, mold area


The protective panelling of the mold area prevents access to this area during mold
movement, thus preventing a risk of crushing.
• The protective panelling of mold area is designed as follows:
– Fixed protective panelling and stop angle brackets at the movable mold
clamping platen,
– Safety gates at the operator side and operator rearside.
• The signals from the safety gate limit switches (operator side) as well as from
the safety gate (operator rearside) and the signal from the safety switch -
BH102 at the valve -FH102 (clamp safety circuit) are checked for their
logically reliable status on a time basis and forwarded to the pump control
circuit.
• When a safety gate is opened, the valve -FH102 (closing stroke safety) is
activated via the limit switches on the operator side or operator rearside and
the hydraulic pressure is blocked for any mold movement.
A message is displayed in the information field, indicating which safety gate
is open.
• A safety-gate-related alarm (A00902–A00912) is generated if the logically
safe status does not exist, and the movements at the injection molding
machine are immediately interrupted.

2.1 Injection molding machines


Injection molding machines are used to manufacture plastic molded parts of
different colours, shapes and sizes. Processing of thermosetting plastics involves
transforming the initial material in the machine into a plastic state by heating it,
then injecting it under pressure into a closed shape (mold) and removing it from
the mold after a cooling phase.

2.2.2 Function
The material which runs through the filling opening (5, fig. 2.6) is transported by
the rotating screw (3).
On the way forwards, the turning of the screw brings the material into contact with
the hot cylinder wall (4). In addition, the rotation (shearing in the molding material)
generates additional heat (frictional heat).
The mold mass which is transported into the screw tab (1) pushes the screw
further and further back as the screw tab increasingly fills until the set plasticizing
stroke is achieved.
The plasticized mold mass can then be injected with the screw (no longer rotates,
MX_MC6_V1.9_07.09.15_ENG

and now acts as a piston) into the shaping cavity of the mold.
The return-flow lock (2) at the end of the screw prevents the melt flowing back into
©KM

the screw channels.


While the mass is cooling down in the mold, it is then possible to begin with the
plasticizing of the mass for the mixed injection shot.

Special features
A high temperature-resistant plasticizing unit should be provided for processing
high temperature-resistant materials.

2.2.3 Screw types


Standard screw
Universal screw for processing a wide range of materials. If this type of screw is
used, it is not always possible to achieve optimum performance although the
screw satisfies demands in the majority of cases.

Mixing screw
For mixing in (mechanically homogenising) dye pigments, as well as powder
granulate as well as paste-like direct processing of several components.
In other words, homogenising materials of different viscosities and molecular
weight distributions.
Recommended where particularly high demands are made in respect of the
mechanical and thermal homogeneity of the mold mass.

Special screws
PVC Thermoset plastics Elastomer plastics
Special screws allow for the particular thermal, rheological and tribological
properties of specific materials.

Venting screws
Processing of all hygroscopic mold masses which, for optical or technological
reasons, have to be dried prior to processing, in particular, though, also of
hygroscopic regenerates.

High-performance screws
High-performance screws are used when the highest requirements are set with
regard to throughput, melting performance and homogeneity.

TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION KraussMaffei Technologies GmbH

2.2.4 Metering
The volume required for the injection molded part is determined by trial metering,
in which the mold is first of all filled to less than capacity.
After the mold has been completely filled incl. holding pressure time a small melt
cushion must remain.
If the processing temperature and/or times are changed, please note that this
may also possibly change the metering.
Changes to a calculated metering setting may adversely affect the quality of the
final part, e.g. stress crack performance.
It is good practice to carry out a check of the weight of the molded part in
harmonization with the other processing parameters.

The plasticizing time is determined by


• injected volume,
• type of plastic,
• screw speed and geometry
• back-pressure.

2.2.5 Screw advance speed


The screw advance speed influences the temperature distribution in the mold. As
the speed increases, the melt temperature in the mold rises, which in turn ensures
that the mold is filled with an amorphous melt (improved temperature and
pressure balance).
With the exception of unfavourable local areas in the molded part, the flow front
speed in the mold cavity stabilizes in accordance with the geometry of the molded
part in proportion to the screw advance speed.
The aim of having a high flow front speed conflicts with the requirement for a
relatively slow swell filling (low screw advance speed) for achieving good surfaces
on the molded part.
Priority must be given to the quality requirement even if a compromise solution is
occasionally unavoidable depending on the geometry of the molded part and the
gate ratios.
At higher screw advance speeds, shrinkage variations and thus the tendency to
distort are largely reduced.

2.5 Injection molding

2.5.1 Basic principles of injection molding


Optimal quality of the molded part is achieved by good interaction of
• machine,
• mold,
• material,
• operating conditions.

A high-performance injection molding machine with sophisticated control is not


able to supply its optimum if
• the mold is incorrectly designed,
• the mold temperature cannot be exactly controlled,
• the mold does not match the machine (e.g. plasticizing),
• an incorrect material has been selected,
• the material is not correctly processed (e.g. predrying).

It is important to take into account various points in respect of the mold, such as
• shrinkage and demolding skews,
• temperature control (heat-balancing channel and hotrunner design),
• design of sprue and gate,
• Machine size.

Even with the best material you will not achieve a satisfactory result if
• the machine does not offer all the necessary setting facilities,
• the machine is not set correctly,
• the mold is not designed for the specific material,
• the screw geometry selection was not made material-specifically.

Operating conditions
• The shop temperature must be constant (no draughts).
• Use optimized cooling devices and heat-balancing units.
• Use parts removal unit cycles to obtain uniform cycles.

2.5.2 Sequence of the injection molding process


MX_MC6_V1.9_07.09.15_ENG

The process times are shown in the figure "Injection molding cycle" (see fig. 2.7,
page 2-119).
©KM

The pourable material passes from the material filling hole into the cooled material
feed zone of the screw barrel, the so-called SC hopper (cooling prevents clotting
in the feed zone).
The rotating screw conveys, compresses and plasticizes the mold melt, which is
metered by means of the set plasticizing stroke.

2-118 Fundamentals of Injection Molding Technology


TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION KraussMaffei Technologies GmbH

During the mold filling process the screw injects the plastic melt under pressure
(injection pressure) and at a speed (injection speed) into the closed, cold or
temperature-regulated mold. During this process the screw (usually) does not
rotate.
The melt in the mold shrinks as a result of the transition from the liquid-plastic into
the solid state and as a result of cooling down.
To compensate for this contraction in volume which would result in the formation
of shrink holes and sink marks, the screw advances further as a result of the
holding pressure, and pushes the melt further into the mold.
After the set holding pressure time has elapsed, the new plasticizing operation
can be started parallel to the commencement of the cooling time. This takes place
at the set screw RPM and with a pressure which acts on the screw moving back
(back-pressure).
Screw RPM and back-pressure depend on the material used.
In addition, in the majority of cases, the screw is moved back after plasticizing
without rotating in order to relieve the pressure on the melt in the screw tip.
At the end of the set cooling time, the mold is opened and the molded part can be
removed (by hand or with a part removal device) or ejected. The new cycle
commences with mold closing.

2.5.3 Injection pressures (injection, holding and back pressure)


MX_MC6_V1.9_07.09.15_ENG

A close correlation exists between the pressure curve in the mold and the quality
©KM

of the molded part. In the figure entitled "Influence of pressure curve on mold
quality" (see fig. 2.9, page 2-121), several quality characteristics have been
assigned to the areas of the pressure curve, which primarily influence the
pressure curve.
The filling phase (injection) is responsible to a considerable extent for the surface
layer and for the mechanical and thermal stress of the melt resulting from
shearing.

2-120 Fundamentals of Injection Molding Technology


TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION KraussMaffei Technologies GmbH

The filling phase, though, also defines the temperature distribution in the melt at
the commencement of the holding pressure. This temperature distribution
influences the entire pressure curve and all the quality characteristics which are
linked to it.
The holding pressure results in a compression of the melt and therefore primarily
determines those quality characteristics which are dependent
• on the density and
• on the spec. volume, e.g.
– weight,
– sink points,
– shrinkage and
– distortion.
The holding pressure should be set only high enough that it is adequate to avoid
shrink holes and sink points. Experience has shown that a higher holding
pressure is required for partially crystalline plastics than for amorphous plastics.

2.5.4 Energy-efficient operation


Additional information is provided below as suggestions for energy and resource-
saving operation.

2.5.4.1 Machine, mold, peripherals


• Always utilize the injection molding machine to the greatest extent possible in
terms of shot weight for efficient operation (see section 8.13.3.1,
page 8-610).
• Shut off unnecessary additional features and peripherals (such as a dryer or
suction conveyor) when not in use (see chapter 12 Auxiliary devices).
• Equip the machine with full plasticizing barrel insulation if possible
(see section 8.10, page 8-531).
• Equip molds in use with heat insulation boards, particularly in the <15°C
and >50°C range (see section 2.4, page 2-117).
• Keep the hose lengths for mold heat-balancing as short as possible to
minimize flow resistance.
• Avoid peripherals operated by energy-inefficient compressed air if possible or
make sure they are implemented optimally (see section 10.11, page 10-746).

2.5.4.2 Machine setting


• Switch off the machine's drives and heating during pauses/idle phases
(see section 6.4, page 6-268).
• Always configure just the amount of clamping force actually required and
configure harmonic closing/opening movement without intermediate stops
and quick speed changes (see section 8.7.1, page 8-413).
• Always select the smallest possible opening width for the clamping unit
(see section 8.7.2, page 8-426).
• Only set the nozzle contact force to the value required for production
(see section 8.9.3.1, page 8-502).
• When lifting out the nozzle do not move back farther than needed
(see section 8.9.3.1, page 8-502).
• Select the nozzle at the injection barrel with as wide a cross-section as
possible (see section 10.12.6, page 10-764).
• Orient the barrel temperatures as close to the lower limits for the processing
guidelines of the respective plastic (see section 8.10, page 8-531).
• Configure the injection molding process to be optimal in terms of energy

Injecting onto each other is used, for example, to attach a soft lip to a hard carrier
part. Here, the carrier is injected on first and then the lip. The connection can be
physical/chemical or mechanical.

Injecting over each other


When injecting over each other, a basic molded part is obtained from the first
material, which is then partially or completely injected over with the second plastic
or is covered over with it. The connection of both plastics can be
physical/chemical or mechanical here too. Intentional "non-compound" is
achieved using two plastics, which have no tendency to form compounds (known
as installation injection molding).

3.4 Operating materials

3.4.1 Water specification

W
Important
Poor water quality leads to increased susceptibility to corrosion and reduces
cooling performance (e. g. by clogging the cooling ducts).

I
Note
• This water specification only applies to machine cooling and mold cooling
via water manifold.
• This water specification applies to the mold cooling with no restrictions in
machines that have a rotary table with hose feedthrough.
• In machines that have a rotary table with rotary feedthrough, the water has
to be additionally prepared specifically for mold cooling (see section 3.4.2,
page 3-154).
• On machines with electric screw drive, the special requirements of the
drive manufacturer must be observed.

The requirements of the specification (see fig. 3.1, page 3-153) must be met by
the owner/operator of the machine.

W
Important
Avoid the following:
• Soiling and sludging,
• Calcification (in the cooler among other areas),
• Accelerated growth of micro-organisms due to high water temperatures,
• Microbiological decay,
• Corrosion (observe electrochemical voltage series in, among other things,
systems and components).

• We recommend using drinking water without additives for maintenance-free

operation.
©KM

• For ambient temperatures < 0 °C, add antifreeze to cooling water.


• There must be no aggressive substances in the medium.
• Additives are only permitted if they have a neutral response to the operating
elements used.
• The following are required:
– the use of filters or dirt traps (nominal mesh width < 160-250 µm).
– inspections (water analyses) or regular decalcification.
• Corrosion protection agents may have to be used. Clarify the use of these
agents with KraussMaffei beforehand.

Important
If the concentration is in the problem zone, there must not be several
assessment characteristics in it at the same time. Extreme caution must be
taken when several problematic substances are present because the entire

Hydraulic oil requirement


What is meant by hydraulic oil is a mineral oil that meets the requirements as per
DIN 51524-2.
The additives added must not have any negative effects on the materials located
in the system.
• The thermal load rating of the hydraulic oils must be designed in such a way
that no negative effects occur at operating temperatures of up to 70 °C.
Recommended operating temperature (can be entered): 45 °C to 50 °C.
• High corrosion protection and compatibility with non-ferrous metals.
• Very good oxidation resistance.
• High temperature stability; no resinification or precipitation of crystalline
constituents.
• Use of primary raffinates for long service life.
• Filterability with 1 µm filter fineness must be guaranteed when using undiluted
oil.
• Neutralization value must be stable over the duration of operation
(increase < 1 compared to fresh oil).

Hydraulic oil quality


The hydraulic oil quality for operating the injection molding machine must not be
worse than the purity classes 17/14/10 as per ISO 4406.
The particle share can be further reduced through practical filtration, e.g. bypass
flow filtration (3 µm(c) to 5 µm(c) at Beta = 200).
In principle, mixing hydraulic oils must be avoided. Before switching to a different
make of oil, check that the residual oil and new oil are compatible and can be
mixed at 50 °C.
Zinc-stabilized and zinc-free oils must not be mixed.
The residual oil volume (one type) must be kept to a minimum, e.g. by flushing
the system with new oil.

3.4.2.2 Sampling

I
Note
Oil is at operating temperature (machine has run for at least 1 h).
The recommended sampling spot is on the hydraulic block at the Minimess
connection downline of the pump.

Proceed as follows when taking the oil sample:


1) With the pump running (full volume flow), screw in the Minimess hose and
allow a sufficient volume of liquid (approx. 2 l) to flow into a separate tank in
order to flush the Minimess hose and dead zones in the inlet area to the
Minimess connection.
The sample must never be taken from a valve that has just been opened and
is not flushed.
2) Unpack the sampling bottle.

I
Note
The sampling bottles must be cleaned and inspected in accordance with
ISO 3722.
Cleanness of less than 10 particles > 4 µm(c) and less than 2 particles >
6 µm(c) per millilitre bottle volume is sufficient.

3) Remove the screw cap from the sampling bottle and hold it in your free hand
without touching the inside surface of the screw cap.
4) Place the sampling bottle immediately under the liquid flow and fill at least
50% of the bottle and no more than 80%.

I
Note
If the bottle is too full, reduce to the prescribed oil volume immediately.
In order to prepare oil samples in the laboratory (homogenization), a volume of
at least 130 ml and a maximum of 200 ml is required (with 250 ml sampling
bottles).

removal valve.
6) Label the sampling bottle unambiguously and permanently (e.g. with a self-
adhesive label).
7) Fill in the oil sampling data sheet. Answer the questions carefully.
8) Send the oil sample together with the data sheet to a laboratory for
determination of the degree of oil purity in accordance with ISO 4406.

4.1 Safety precautions for transportation

l
d
D
Hazard from falling loads
When transporting a load there is always the risk of it falling down.
Never stand or walk under raised loads.

Before transporting a load, compare the weight of the item and the load-bearing
capacity of the ropes and cranes as well as other auxiliary tackle and select a
means of transportation which offers sufficient safety and lifting capacity.
If using a crane for transport, secure the ropes on the crane hook to prevent the
load from capsizing because the centre of gravity of the load can be in an
eccentric position.
When transporting a load with a forklift, ensure that the forks have adequate load
bearing capacity and are the proper size. Adhere to the specified dimensions and
weights in the following tables (see section 4.3.1, page 4-170).

r
d
D
Risk of slipping
When transporting a load, service products such as hydraulic oil may flow out
and contaminate the area around the machine.
Drain the machine before transporting it and/or secure the service product
reservoirs to prevent any fluids from escaping.
Immediately clean up any escaped operating materials in an environmentally
responsible manner.

b
B
Wear personal protective equipment
When transporting a load, hazardous situations may occur which can result in
injuries.
When carrying out transport work, always wear protective clothing in
conformity with the currently valid accident prevention regulations (e.g. safety
shoes, protective gloves, etc.).

4.3.3 Securing the load


Depending on properties, the machine must be secured against toppling, shifting
and falling off during transport in/on suitable means of transport with a sufficient
load bearing capacity.
The following suitable measures must be taken corresponding to the anticipated
load on the means of transport and the transport route, while observing the
respective national and international guidelines and technical regulations:
• Use of friction-increasing materials (anti-slip mats).
• Load securing points must be freely accessible.
• The load must only be secured directly (diagonal and/or direct lashing)
(1, fig. 4.9). Simple cross lashing is not permitted due to the high centre of
gravity (risk of toppling).
Securing crosswise is only permissible if the arrangement of the load securing
points does not permit direct diagonal securing (2, fig. 4.9).
• Ensure load securing elements are positively fitted: Load is supported by
wooden beams against the front wall (positive locking in direction of travel –
directly or by means of an H-block between load and front wall of trailer)
(see fig. 4.10, page 4-182).

W
Important
• For direct securing of the load, only the lashing points provided by
KraussMaffei should be used.
• Lashing and securing elements (chains, lashing strap, anti-slip mats) must
be sufficiently dimensioned and be in technically perfect condition and
checked for damage.

• If lashing and lifting points are not identical, only use the red-marked lashing
points.
• Place the guard (rubber, wood) between the tensioning chain and the
machine part.
• Only load onto technically faultless lorries.
• When loading the machine onto a lorry, always ensure that the longitudinal
centre of gravity of the machine is positioned on the longitudinal axis of the
lorry.
• The person responsible for the loading operation must be satisfied that the
MX_MC6_V1.9_07.09.15_ENG

machine has been properly loaded and secured prior to handing over the
©KM

shipping documents.

W
Important
As a general rule, only the attachment and lashing points provided by
KraussMaffei should be used for lifting and transporting the machine.

5.1 Safety precautions during installation

w
d
D
Hazard from insufficient load carrying ability of floor
If the floor does not have a sufficient load carrying ability, this will result in
damage to the machine and to the structure. This may also result in personal
injury.
Ensure that the floor load capacity at the installation location meets the
specifications stated in the foundation drawing (see chapter 15 Parts
lists/drawings).

l
d
D
Hazard from falling loads
• When installing the machine, there is always a danger of falling loads.
Never stand or walk under raised loads.
• A crane with lifting ropes or lifting tackle of sufficient load carrying capacity
is required for unloading the assemblies. Dimensions and weights
(see chapter 15 Parts lists/drawings).
• The following rules apply to lifting ropes and lifting tackle:
– Arrange them in such a way that the assemblies can be raised and
transported horizontally (not at an angle).
– Attach them only at the points provided for this purpose.
– Arrange them such that injection unit panelling is not pushed in or
damaged.
• If there is no corresponding lifting tackle available for transport in the shop,
the components can be transported on steel rollers. Pay attention to the
composition of the shop floor and any flooring.

r
d
D
Risk of slipping
Oil or hydraulic fluid on the floor causes a risk of slipping.
Use a suitable filling tool (e.g. funnel) for pouring in lubricating oil and hydraulic
medium.
Immediately contain any spilled oil and dispose of it.
