Performance Testing

The worldwide trend towards better quality products and the increasing emphasis on product reliability, safety and health standards have made testing and quality control an integral part of any manufacturing processes.

PTC has comprehensive and advanced facilities for processing machinery. All tests made are in accordance with national and international standards such as ASTM, BS, DIN, JIS, EUROMAP, IEC, SPC, etc. PTC can provide not just quantitative figures, but also in-depth analysis and interpretation of the measurements and testing results.

Performance Testing List:
 Test No.  Demonstration  Test Name  Definition  Testing Standard
 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
 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
 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.  EUROMAP 1
 4  N/A  Linearity of the Plasticizing Screw  Rotation Speed     The rotational speed of the plasticizing screw.  EUROMAP 1
 5 View  Melt Temperature Variation  Melt temperature is the temperature of the plastic resin at the nozzle tip.  --
 6  View  Mould Platen Parallelism  Mould platen parallelism is the parallelism between the moving mould platen and the fixed mould platen.  EUROMAP 9
 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.
 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
 9  View  Noise Level Test  Mould related noise level is to measure the sound levels emitted by injection moulding machine under loaded conditions.  --
 10  View  Electric Energy Consumption Test  Electrical energy consumption is to measure the energy consumed by the machinery under normal loading condition.  EUROMAP 5
 11  View  Pressure Spike Test  This test determines the stability of the machine by measuring the
pressure spike during injection.
 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
 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.
 14  N/A  Cycle Time Test  The fastest cycle time for producing the products is measured under the designated conditions.  EUROMAP 19
 15  N/A  Injection System Test  This test measures the maximum flow length within the spiral mould.  --
