Abstract

This paper deals with optimal injection molding process parameters for minimum short shot. In this study, analyses of injection molding process parameters were carried out to reduced defects and minimize short shots. Optimal injection molding conditions for minimum short shot were determined by the DOE technique of Taguchi and the analysis of variance (ANOVA) methods. For this study CPVC plastic specimen was tested. Determination of the optimal Injection molding process parameters were based on S/N ratios. According to results mold closing speed had significant effect on quality characteristic. Mold pressure and Injection pressure had no significant effect
