Clamping Force

This result shows the plot of clamping force versus filling time.

 

Note that this value is the calculated required clamping force; it is not the force that molding machine outputs.

 

You can use this result to identify possible flash problem. From past experience, if the calculated clamping force is larger than 70% of machine maximum clamping force, there is a good chance that plastic melt will be squeezed outside the cavity and cause flash.
