|On-Site Speaker (Planned)
M-HPDC is an In-Mold manufacturing process combining High Pressure Die Casting (HPDC) and Injection Molding (IM) within one manufacturing plant. The biggest influence within a metal-plastic-bond realized by micro bracing is ascribed to a suitable temperature management within the die. Therefore a suitable temperature control concept for a sample die, made to manufacture an overlap shear tensile sample, will be presented. In order to investigate the temperature influence, the die provides several options to influence the actual temperature. A number of independent cooling circuits, an alternating temperature management unit and a contour adapted heating cartridge are integrated. Besides that, the temperature within the joining area can be raised by exchangeable die inserts for the usage of either an inductor or a heating ceramic. For the purpose of quantification, the temperature will be monitored by thermocouples close to the actual cavity surface. The die concept and first results of the simulative approaches will be shown.
