In the plastics industry, a specific heat treatment process is essential to improve the performance and quality of injection-molded components.
This process, which is applied after injection molding, involves carefully heating the plastic parts to a precise temperature,
followed by a controlled cooling process.
The aim is to relieve internal stresses within the parts that can arise during the injection molding process.
This treatment not only improves the physical properties of the plastic products, such as flexibility and impact resistance,
but also increases their resistance to environmental influences and mechanical stresses.
The result is a significant increase in product quality and durability, which is beneficial for manufacturers and end users alike.
