In this study, proper injection molding condition has been studied through stress relaxation tests in order to experimentally investigate the effect of the condition on softening of mold product, using specimens produced under the different conditions according to the recommendation of resin manufactures. As a result, softening of the specimens was found to be strongly influenced by material melting temperature. The specimen with higher material melting temperature is found to have lower softening. However, softening of the specimen with lower mold temperature has an decrement, compared with other specimens. In particular, specimen with notch is influenced by mold temperature. The softening increase with higher injection speed and pressure. Finally in order to improve softening, material melting temperature, injection speed and injection pressure were found to be increased with low mold temperature.
