Mold Design Support – Gating inlet design

 

The gating inlet diameter and its type will also affect the number of gating and its allowed gating mark.

 

Please refer to above sketch, counting from left side, figure 1 and 2 – these are open type gating inlet. 

Its advantage is that there can be a larger amount of feed volumn, and its gating number can be lesser.

But its disadvantage is that it will leave a material head and a large gating mark on the product surface.

 

Please refer to above sketch, counting from left side, figure 3 and 4 – these are pin type gating inlet. 

Its advantage is that it will leave smaller gating mark, and its disadvantage is that it flow volumn is

smaller, so that it will require more gating inlet points.

 

All above points/types are needed to be considered by customer, and Intertech will provide our

Professional support for helping customer to make the best decision.
