What is clamping force?

Clamping force refers to the force applied to the mold (or plastic part) by the clamping unit of an injection molding machine. In general, the bigger the part, the more clamping force required.

What is shot size?

Shot size refers to the maximum amount of plastic that can be injected in one cycle of injection molding. The bigger the part, the larger shot size required.
