If the parting surface/plane is oriented in the vertical as shown on page 1, the polymer will enter the mold and start filling the cavity from the lowest point. As the polymer fills the mold air will be pushed toward the top of the cavity. If a vent is not in this location air will be trapped here. Two solutions to this would be make sure a vent is located there and/or make the surface of the parting surface/plane rough enough to allow air to escape through the parting surface. The drawback of just using venting through the parting surface is the cycle time will have to be increased to allow the air to escape through the parting surface/plane. A "better" location for the gate would be the center of the flat surface on the part. 5 ...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
