This paper describes the cycle time reduction approach of injection moulding machine for DVD manufacturing. Optimizing the parameters of the injection moulding machine is critical to improve manufacturing processes. This research focuses on the optimization of injection moulding machine parameters. Suggestions for process improvements are made based on the results of a designed experiment. This paper is to provide statistical evidence for optimizing parameters of an injection moulding machine. The machine parameters to be investigated include cooling time, holding time, and robot take out time limit.
