In rotational molding, shortening the cycle time is one of the most important requirements for increasing production rates and reducing product cost. A characteristic feature of the process is that the mold and plastic powder are heated from room temperature to the melting temperature of the plastic and then back to room temperature. In addition, in the vast majority of cases the heat input and subsequent heat extraction occur at the outside surface. In order to improve the heat transfer, this paper …
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.
