## Mold Cooling Calculations With DZynSource Software

This is  the first video in a series that I will create and upload showing how to do mold cooling calculations with DZynSource Mold Engineering Software.  In this video we’ll look at the cooling requirements for the whole mold.   However, we won’t include the hot runner at this point even though the mold in the […]

## Pneumatic Cylinder Tutorial

I have started making and uploading tutorial videos to YouTube.  This is the first attempt, and while it is a bit dry, I think it gets the point across. When designing injection molds, it is very often desirable to use pneumatic cylinder to move objects, or act in place of springs.  Pneumatic cylinders are used […]

## Calculate Optimum Diameter For Cutter Or Part

When machining, it is occasionally desirable to calculate the appropriate diameter of either the cutter (i.e. milling) or the workpiece (i.e. turning) when the Surface Feet per Minute are known, and the RPM’s are established. The equation used in this calculation is:  Diameter =  (SFM  /  RPM)  /  (Pi * 12) where, SFM = Surface […]

## Calculating Screw Thread Properties Easily

For calculating screw thread properties easily, for screw threads with a 60 degree included angle thread shape, use the formulas below: Metric screw sizes are calculated as follows: Minor diameter = Major diameter – (1.226869 x pitch) Pitch diameter = Major diameter – (.649519 x pitch) The tensile stress area = ((root dia + pitch […]
