Short shot mold diagnostics is a seemingly simple yet very effective method of evaluating a molds performance. The use of short shots can provide a window into how a mold fills. Uses can include diagnostics of filling imbalances in multi-cavity molds, evaluation of filling patterns within a given cavity and evaluation of the molding pressure development within the mold. Despite the simplicity of this method, it is common that the test is done incorrectly and results in false information. Below are instructions on how to properly collect short shot data.
