Even heat-up is a process for uniform heating of a mould. Many manufacturers can do this in some form, the exact algorithms differ. “Fast” zones on hot runner nozzles, for example, are slowed down until slower zones follow. The aim is to keep the temperature differences in a mould low in order to protect the material from thermal damage and the mould from damage due to stress. With the Variable EvenHeatUpMaxTemperatureDifference the maximum temperature difference of all zones during heat-up is defined.

Unit: °C or F

The even heat-up process is enabled for the separate zones by the Variable EvenHeatUpEnabled in the HeatUpType (see 16.4).
