Plastic Industry Forum - Converse with Plastics Processing Leaders / Business / Cavitation vs Estimated Annual Usage Standards
Posted:  14 Dec 2017 19:17
Hello Everyone and Happy Holidays, reaching out to see what others use for determining number of cavities in a tool in regards to annual usage. Businesses change as has ours and we find that as capacity and building footprint gets tighter we try to build higher cavitation tooling regardless if volume supports it just to reduce machine hours. Just looking to see what rule of thumb other companies are using. Do you look at it this way or do you back into a max machine hours you will consume on a press per product which will determine your tooling cavitation? Feel free to contact me direct at
