All information, which is needed for production, is collected on the machine setup sheet ( or machine datasheet).
It starts with the material and its drying conditions, then it continues with the machine data and the strokes of the mold.
After that, the process parameters follow.
This includes the temperatures of each cooling channel, hot runner and cylinder; cycle times, pressures and speeds.
With a correct filled datasheet, it is possible to reproduce the process anytime.
