Abstract

The injection molding is used in more than 70% of total production of plastic products. Weld line in injection molded part is one of the defects in injection molding process. Weld line deteriorates not only appearance quality but also mechanical property. In this study weld quality has been examined according to the injection processing temperature, materials and mold designs. We selected four different materials such as PA, PP, ABS and PS as experimental materials. Weld quality increased as injection processing temperature increases. It was more dependent on materials flow ability. As a result, weld quality incase of rectangular core is better than circular core.
