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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
