Abstract: Abstract A computer software has been developed to speed up the design process of automatic degating molds used for injection molding of plastic balls. Following an introduction to the ball making process and the associated mold design consideration, the algorithm and formulation of the software are presented. To demonstrate its versatility, the software developed is adopted to design both testing and production molds that best meet the design and production requirements. Two testing molds were built. While o…
