Why choose SMC bumper mold?

The material of automobile bumper has undergone a change from metal to plastic. Early front and rear bumpers are mainly metal materials, riveted or welded together with the frame rail, and there is a large gap with the body, the quality is large, the appearance and body style is difficult to unify.


With the development of automobile industry, engineering plastics have been widely used in automobile manufacturing due to their characteristics of light weight, corrosion resistance and large design freedom. At present, the front bumper of the car on the market is generally made of polyester (such as PBT) and polypropylene (such as PP), which are made by injection molding.


The existing front bumper adopts integrated injection molding, which has the advantage of efficient and mass production, but has the following disadvantages:

First, due to the large size of the parts themselves, the more complex the front bumper modeling parts design, manufacturing is more difficult, higher requirements for the mold;

Second, the current bumper surface in any area of irreversible collision defects, can only be replaced by the whole part;

Third, at present, there are mainly several kinds of plastic front bumper appearance color design: keep consistent with the body, through spray paint color separation design, but also maintain the original color appearance of injection parts without spray paint.

With the improvement of the user’s requirements for car selection and the improvement of the quality and appearance requirements of the oEMS, the manufacturing of automobile bumper is constantly improving from both material and design. Using SMC molding process, SMC bumper mold can more meet the needs of people now on the car. The main reasons are as follows:

First, compared with the traditional integral plastic front bumper post maintenance and replacement, SMC bumper mold is more convenient and low maintenance cost.

Second, SMC bumper mold high temperature resistance, oil resistance, corrosion resistance.

Third, SMC bumper mold strength is stronger, can achieve safe performance.

Fourth, low cost, small weight. Not only that, SMC bumper mold can also in peacetime slight collision, rebound back to the original state, greatly reducing the cost of maintenance.

BMC (DMC) moulding process

The preparation of BMC (DMC) is divided into two steps: ? First add the resin, colorant, mould release agent, part of the filler, etc. into the high-shear mixer to mix evenly, the mixing temperature reaches about 50 ?, and then slowly add the remaining The filler is mixed and stirred evenly to prepare the resin premixed slurry; ?Add the premixed slurry to the Z-type reamer mixer or other mixers, add the dried chopped glass fiber, and stir for 10~15 minutes Then pour out the bulk material, squeeze it into strips and pellets with an extruder, dry and seal the package with polyester film, and store it for later use.

Points for attention in BMC moulding

1) Barrel temperature and mould temperature. During processing, BMC is required to maintain low viscosity flow for a long time at the temperature of the barrel. Generally, the temperature of the barrel should meet the low limit of BMC. The temperature of the barrel is generally divided into two or three stages of control. The temperature near the hopper is lower and the temperature near the nozzle is higher. Generally, the difference is 20~60?, and the mould temperature is generally controlled at 135~185?.

2) Injection pressure. Due to the poor fluidity of BMC, fast curing, and complicated mould structure, the injection pressure should be selected to be higher, generally 80~160MPa.

3) Injection speed. The increase in injection speed helps to improve the surface quality of the plastic parts, shorten the curing time but is not conducive to exhaust and increase the degree of orientation of the glass fiber. Therefore, lower injection speed should be adopted under the premise of ensuring the surface quality of plastic parts, usually 1.8~3.5m/min.

4) Screw speed and backpressure. If a screw-type injection moulding machine is used, the screw damages the glass fiber greatly when injecting BMC. In order to minimize the damage of the glass fiber, the screw speed should be selected at a low value, generally 20-50r/min. According to the viscosity of BMC, the use of low back pressure is appropriate, generally 1.4 ~ 2.0MPa.

5) Moulding cycle. Due to the different size and complexity of plastic parts, the processing time of each section is also different. The general injection time is 2~20s and the holding time is 10~20.

Introduce to BMC mold

BMC mold compression molding is to add plastic directly to an open mold cavity with a certain temperature, and then close the mold, the plastic melts into a flowing state under the action of heat and pressure. Due to the physical and chemical effects, the BMC hardens into a plastic part with a certain shape and size that remains unchanged at room temperature. BMC mold compression molding is mainly used to mold thermosetting plastics, such as phenolic molding powder, urea-formaldehyde and melamine formaldehyde molding powder, glass fiber reinforced phenolic plastic, epoxy resin, DAP resin, silicone resin, polyimide, etc. Plastics can also be processed with unsaturated polyester pellets (DMC), sheet molding compound (SMC), prefabricated integral molding compound (BMC), etc.

BMC mold is a thermosetting mold. Compared with thermoplastic mold, bmc mold is irreversible. Products processed by thermoplastic molds can be recycled, reprocessed and reinjected, while products processed by thermoset molds cannot be processed once formed. There is no difference in the structure of the two molds. The difference lies in the processed material: one is a thermosetting material and the other is a thermoplastic material.

BMC is a thermosetting plastic, which is mixed with various inert fillers, fiber reinforcements, catalysts, stabilizers and pigments to form a sticky “putty” composite material for compression molding or injection molding. BMC plastics are highly filled and reinforced with short fibers. Glass fiber reinforced materials account for 10% to 30%, and the length is usually between 1/32 inches and 1/2 inches (12.5 mm).

According to different final application fields, the formulated composite material can accurately control the size, good flame retardancy and tracking resistance, has high dielectric strength, corrosion resistance and stain resistance, excellent mechanical properties, low shrinkage and Stable color. BMC plastic has excellent flow characteristics, insulation and flame retardancy, and is very suitable for various applications requiring precise details and dimensions.

Introduce to SMC molding process

The main raw materials of SMC are composed of SMC special yarn, unsaturated resin, low shrinkage additives, fillers and various additives. SMC has the advantages of superior electrical performance, corrosion resistance, lightweight and easy and flexible engineering design. Its mechanical properties are comparable to some metal materials, so it is widely used in transportation vehicles, construction, electronics/electricity and other industries.

1. Preparation before molding
(1) The quality of SMC sheet has a great influence on the molding process and SMC part quality. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the formulation of resin paste, glass fiber content, etc. before molding.
(2) Determine the shape and size of the sheet material cutting according to the structural shape of the SMC part, the feeding position, and the process. In order to prevent contamination by external impurities, the upper and lower films are only removed before loading.
(3) Familiar with the various operating parameters of the press, especially to adjust the working pressure and the running speed of the press and the parallelism of the table. The mold installation must be level, and ensure that the installation position is in the center of the press table. Before molding, the mold must be thoroughly cleaned and coated with mold release agent. Before feeding, wipe the release agent with clean gauze to avoid affecting the appearance of the SMC part.

2. Feeding
(1) Determine the feeding amount and feeding area. The size of the feeding area directly affects the compactness of the SMC part and the surface quality of the SMC part. It is related to the flow and curing characteristics of SMC, SMC part performance requirements, mold structure, etc.
(2) Feeding position and method. The feeding position and method directly affect the appearance, strength and directionality of the SMC part. Normally, the feeding position of the material should be in the middle of the cavity. For asymmetric and complex SMC parts, the feeding position must ensure that the material flow reaches the ends of the molding cavity at the same time during molding. The feeding method must be conducive to exhaust. When stacking multiple layers of sheets, it is best to stack the materials up and down.

3. After the material enters the mold cavity, the press goes down quickly. When the upper and lower molds coincide, slowly apply the required molding pressure. After a certain amount of curing, the molding of the SMC part ends. During the molding process, various molding process parameters and press operating conditions should be selected reasonably.
(1) The molding temperature depends on the type of resin, SMC part thickness, SMC partion efficiency and SMC part structure. Generally speaking, the forming temperature of thick SMC parts should be lower than that of thin-walled SMC parts. For example, if the thickness of the SMC part is 25-32mm, the forming temperature is 135-145 ?. And thinner SMC parts can be formed at 171 ?. It is generally believed that the SMC molding temperature is between 120-155 ° C.
(2) Molding pressure varies with SMC part structure, shape and size. SMC parts with simple shapes only need a forming pressure of 5-7MPa; SMC parts with a complicated shape can have a forming pressure of 7-15MPa. The size of the molding pressure is also related to the mold structure. The molding pressure required by the vertical parting structure mold is lower than that of the horizontal parting structure mold. In short, the determination of molding pressure should consider many factors. Generally speaking, SMC molding pressure is between 3-7MPa.
(3) The curing time is related to factors such as material type, molding temperature, SMC part thickness and color. The curing time is generally calculated at 40s / mm. For thick SMC parts above 3mm, each additional 4mm increases the curing time by 1min.
