17. Use a crane to lift the mold without removing the pressure plate.

18. The main sprue sticks to the mold, instead of using a copper rod to knock it with an iron rod.

19. The main sprue sticks to the mold. When the mold is not closed, use the injection action to directly “squeeze” the sprue out.

20. The product is too full, sticking to the moving mold, and the ejector pin is broken and the ejector pin is deformed after repeated ejection with full pressure and full speed.

21. The gate is too small, the product isn’t filled. For this, rise the temperature of the barrel sharply, making the material decompose.

22. The pin of the pulling material is worn, and the runner material is not easy to fall off: use the high pressure and low speed at the end of the mold opening or use a pull ring to force it.

23. The product sticks to the mold: close the mold directly, and try to pull the product out.

24. Remove the water pipe from the upper and lower mold, and leak water into the electric box, resulting in a black screen of the computer and a burnt out of the main board.

42. When the nozzle leaks glue, use a paper or iron pad.

43. After the hot runner mold is on the mold, turn on the electric heating switch first, and then turn on the water (the water leaks to burn the hot runner).

44. The upper mold is unbalanced, and when the mold cannot be closed, turn up the low pressure and lock it forcibly.

45. During mold trial or small batch production, in order to save trouble, only 4 diagonal corners or no water will be connected to the stamper.

46. In order to save trouble, short-circuit the safety switch of the rear safety door.

47. Ineffective use or non-use of mechanical safety gates, it is estimated that 80% of the factories have done this.

48. Directly heat the mold that needs to be heated for mold testing with a gun to burn the mold cavity.

49. When the safety baffle is broken: tie with a rope, and continue the production without processing.

50. Multiple thimbles, the product does not fall. When fully automatic, take samples from the top by force.

63. When the thin-walled product is clamped, use copper wire to pull it. But after flattening the copper wire, then directly knock it on the Corinthian pillar.

64. For the install or uninstall the molds, hang the mold to the machine to fix the position. No pressing it with the pressure plate in time, and do other things instead. And other workers open the mold without knowing it, the mold falls down.

65. The product sticks to the fixed mold, and the copper rod cannot be found. Then knock it with an iron rod, making the mold broken.

66. When the hot runner mold is flowing glue, because the hot nozzle is too deep, rise the temperature without confirming the decomposition temperature of the raw material, trying to melt the cold glue.

78. The speed of the screw is slow, turn with a high speed and high pressure (without confirming whether the temperature is suitable).

79. When the product is not filled, use high pressure and hard pressing (not confirming whether the temperature is suitable).

80. The nozzle and the flange cannot be dismantled, so use the afterburner to knock hard.

81. When uninstall the mold, the mold located ring is stuck, forward the injection unit and the push with nozzle forcibly.

82. When the product sticks to the mold, use a copper rod to pry it hard.

83. When the nozzle is clogged, and the product is not full: add pressure without removing the nozzle.

84. When installing a large mold, for the worry that the mold will not be safe — use a particularly long afterburner to press desperately.

88. Pull out the thermocouple if the machine oil temperature is too high.

89. When the slide block does not slide smoothly, just loosen the slide block screw and continue production without checking.

90. The mold core is not well sealed, and water gushes out slightly. Due to the small batch size, then barely keep on producing, resulting in rust on the etched surface.

91. The mold core accessories are loose or damaged, because the quantity to be produced is not much. Then barely keep on the production, resulting in damage to other modules and increasing the difficulty of repair.
