Abstract

A defined laser texturing of a mould insert has demonstrated positive effects on the productivity when applied in combination with the DuPont grade Zytel(R) HTN51G35HSL NC010, which is PPA polymer containing 35 % glass fibers. A validation test under production conditions has shown that a surface topography tuned with the laser texturing (provided by GF Machining Solutions) has an anti-adhesive effect and allows for a potential gain of 5 seconds cooling time, which corresponds to a cycle time reduction from 33 to 28 seconds or a 15 % productivity increase.
