MATHEMATICAL MODELLING OF TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESSES AND SYSTEMS
As plastic products shrink during cooling, so knowledge of shrinkage factor for different materials is required. The main objective of the study is to examine the influence of mold cooling process on subsequent deformation of finished part. To achieve the goal, simulations were carried out at different temperatures of the cooling agent. Statistical processing was performed and a regression model was derived describing the relationship between temperature, time and deformation during cooling.
