Rapid heat cycle molding (RHCM) is a new technology aimed at obtaining green and high surface quality of plastic products. In this paper, the finite element model of the mould cavity in cooling process with RHCM was established for the transient heat transfer simulation using ANSYS. Thermal analysis results of temperature field were modified by experimental analysis, the results of which showed a good temperature uniformity and extraordinary efficiency of the cooling rate.
