The Hong Kong Plastic Machinery Performance Testing Centre - Performance Testing

The service provides a series of additional plastic machinery mechanical, injection and control performance testing to further evaluate the capability of your machine.


Performance Testing List:


Test No. Demonstration Test Name Definition Testing Standard
5.1 View Linearity of the Mould Clamping Force Mould clamping force is the force applied to the moving mould plate to hold the mould parts together. EUROMAP 7
5.2 N/A Linearity of the Actual Injection Pressure Versus Machine Setting Actual injection pressure is the melt pressure developed by the plasticizing screw at the nozzle tip. EUROMAP 1
5.3 N/A Injection Rate Variation Versus Stroke Volume     Injection rate is the amount of materials that can be injected in terms of cm3 per second.



5.4 N/A Linearity of the Plasticizing Screw Rotation Speed The rotational speed of the plasticizing screw. EUROMAP 1
5.5 View Melt Temperature Variation Melt temperature is the temperature of the plastic resin at the nozzle tip. - -
5.6 View Mould Platen Parallelism Mould platen parallelism is the parallelism between the moving mould platen and the fixed mould platen. EUROMAP 9
5.7 View Mould Clamping Force Versus Tie Bar Elongation Mould clamping force is the force required to hold the two mould halves together during a moulding cycle. Tie bar elongation is the amount of stretching or strain on each of the four tie bars during mould clamping. EUROMAP 19
5.8 View Shot-to-Shot Weight Accuracy This test is used to determine the shot-to-shot stability of the products produced from the injection moulding machine. EUROMAP 5
5.9 View Noise Level Test Mould related noise level is to measure the sound levels emitted by injection moulding machine under loaded conditions. - -
5.10 View Electric Energy Consumption Test Electrical energy consumption is to measure the energy consumed by the machinery under normal loading condition. EUROMAP 5
5.11 View Pressure Spike Test This test determines the stability of the machine by measuring the pressure spike during injection.。 - -
5.12 View Shot-to-Shot Position Accuracy Position accuracy refers to the repeatability of the mould opening and closing positions from cycle to cycle during normal operating conditions. - -
5.13 View Colour Mixing Capability Test A sample size of spiral-shaped products is collected under the designated conditions, and then the product colour deviation is measured. - -
5.14 N/A Cycle Time Test The fastest cycle time for producing the products is measured under the designated conditions. EUROMAP 19
5.15 N/A Injection System Test This test measures the maximum flow length within the spiral mould. - -
