CLAIMS

1. A system for regulating a temperature in a shooting pot associated with an injection molding machine, the system comprising:

a cooling circuit proximate a plunger entry end of the shooting pot, the cooling circuit configured to allow a cooling fluid to pass therethrough;

a thermocouple proximate the plunger entry end of the shooting pot;

a cooling adjustment unit for controlling an amount of cooling provided by the cooling fluid; and

a controller coupled with the cooling adjustment unit and the thermocouple for controlling the cooling adjustment unit based on a temperature reading associated with the thermocouple.

2. The system of claim 1, wherein the cooling adjustment unit is a flow control valve connected to the cooling circuit for regulating the flow of the cooling fluid within the cooling circuit.

3. The system of claim 2, wherein the controller is configured to control the flow control valve to maintain a target temperature.

4. The system of claim 3, wherein the controller is configured to increase flow of cooling fluid after determining that the temperature reading is greater than the target temperature.

5. The system of claim 3, wherein the controller is configured to decrease flow of cooling fluid after determining than the temperature reading is less than the target temperature.

6. The system of claim 3, wherein the target temperature is selected to maintain a consistency of resin near the plunger entry end of the shooting pot to reduce leakage of the resin from the plunger entry end of the shooting pot.

7. The system of claim 2, wherein the cooling fluid is water.

8. The system of claim 1 or 2, wherein the cooling adjustment unit is a heater.

9. The system of claim 8, wherein the controller is configured to control the heater to increase an amount of heat after determining than the temperature reading is less than a target temperature.

10. The system of claim 9, wherein the controller is configured to control the heater to decrease an amount of heat after determining than the temperature reading is greater than a target temperature.

11. The system of claim 1, wherein the shooting pot is provided on an auxiliary injection

assembly associated with the injection molding machine, the auxiliary injection assembly configured to be removably connected to the injection molding machine.

12. A method of regulating a temperature in a shooting pot associated with an injection molding machine, the method comprising:

receiving a temperature reading associated with a thermocouple proximate a plunger entry end of a shooting pot; and

controlling a cooling adjustment unit based on the temperature reading, the cooling adjustment unit controlling an amount of cooling provided by a cooling fluid in a cooling circuit proximate a plunger entry end of the shooting pot.

13. The method of claim 12, wherein the cooling adjustment unit is a flow control valve

connected to the cooling circuit for regulating the flow of the cooling fluid within the cooling circuit, and wherein controlling the cooling adjustment unit comprises controlling the flow control valve to maintain a target temperature.

14. The method of claim 13, wherein controlling the cooling adjustment unit comprises

increasing flow of cooling fluid after determining that the temperature reading is greater than the target temperature.

15. The method of claim 13, wherein controlling the cooling adjustment unit comprises

decreasing flow of cooling fluid after determining than the temperature reading is less than the target temperature.

16. The method of claim 13, wherein the target temperature is selected to maintain a consistency of resin near the plunger entry end of the shooting pot to reduce leakage of the resin from the plunger entry end of the shooting pot.

17. The method of claim 13, wherein the cooling fluid is water.

18. The method of claim 12 or 13, wherein the cooling adjustment unit is a heater.

19. The method of claim 18, wherein controlling the cooling adjustment unit comprises

controlling the heater to increase the amount of heat after determining than the temperature reading is less than a target temperature.

20. The method of claim 19, wherein controlling the cooling adjustment unit comprises

controlling the heater to decrease the amount of heat after determining than the temperature reading is greater than a target temperature.

21. The method of claim 13, wherein the target temperature is a range of temperature in which a resin in the shooting pot has a desired viscosity or a specific temperature within the range.
