Molding Advancements for Phenolic Automotive Components 2000-01-1164

This paper will explore molding systems that are improving phenolic composite molding specifically for the automotive component market. Topics will address processing advancements including innovative injection molding systems such as HTM™ (High Temperature Molding), RIC™ (Runnerless Injection Compression), utilization of “Live Sprues” in injection tools, and general automation of the processes which produce these components. Competition within the industry is becoming very intense and the utilization of these processes along with the advances in computer technologies will help to keep profits and reduce manufacturing costs.
Molded Components that will be addressed in this paper are:
  • Solenoid Cap - Standard compression molding vs. Automated compression molding, vs. Standard injection and HTM™ Injection
  • Brake Caliper Pistons - Standard compression molding, Standard Injection Molding and RIC molding, Fully automated Compression molding
  • Power Brake Booster Valve Bodies - Compression Molding vs. Injection molding and HTM™injection molding
  • Power Steering Pulleys - Standard compression molding, vs. Automated Compression Molding, vs. RIC molding
