Abstract: Abstract In order to reduce the frozen‐in orientation, which is usually present in injection molded products, the effect of high‐performance mold surface heaters was investigated. The heaters are capable of changing their surface temperature by 70°C within a few tenths of a second typically, which minimizes their effect on the cooling time. The effects of the heating time, the instant of heating, and the heating power on the birefringence distribution of a polystyrene resin were studied. Reductions of the bir…
