MULTIPLE GATING
Multiple gating of injection molded parts, while not a new concept, is being increasingly used to lightweight parts and meet sustainability goals.
reducing part weight
StackTeck employs the latest technologies in evaluating the opportunity to reduce the part weight, reduce piece part costs, while maintaining necessary functional features. With decades of related experience, the engineering team navigates unique part design challenges as well as solutions for addressing weld lines, shrinkage, and clamp tonnage conditions.
Multiple gating features and benefits:
  • Part weight reduction of 10% - 15%

  • Flow length to wall thickness ratio L/T increases subject to gating configuration

  • Part strength optimization using FEA technology

  • Combine with other lightweight technology such as TRIM

  • Fast cycle times

  • Production proven technology
