New Design and Injection Molding Analysis of a Low Smoke Zero Halogen Cable Trunk

Xiaoxun Zhang, Fang Ma, Xia Li

Abstract


The traditional production process of a cable trunk is plastic extrusion with PVC or other halogen containing materials. However, they have many disadvantages such as easy burning, producing toxic gases and smokes. A low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) cable trunk was designed and developed in the present study and the injection molding process was adopted to produce the LSZH cable trunk. Numerical simulations were applied to investigate the effects of the important process parameters on the warpage of the cable trunk. Comparing the simulation results under different process conditions and consideration both of the volumetric shrinkage and the total warpage displacement, it is found that the process parameters, including mold temperature 75°C, melt temperature 265°C, injection pressure 190 MPa, packing pressure 152 MPa, cooling water temperature 50°C and injection time 3 s, are the optimal process conditions for the injection molding process of the new designed cable trunk.
