Full Round Runner Sizing


The round runner size is determined by the type of plastic material used to mold the part. Many mold designers rely on the customer or plastic resin supplier to specify size. The runner sizes range from 3/16 to 3/8 diameter. Large diameter runners reduce stress, warping, and sink marks. However, runners should be as small as possible to reduce shot size and cycle time.
