A new press for molding micro-size parts from liquid silicone rubber comes from Engel North America, York, Pa. The tiebarless press is based on Engel’s e-Victory 80/30 hybrid-electric system, but features a special 12-mm LSR screw and check-disk assembly. The electric injection unit can run shots from fractions of a gram to 55 cc with a simple barrel and screw changeover. The machine also comes with Engel’s basic cleanroom package featuring stainless-steel panels and other components. It integrates a six-axis robot from Kuka Robotics and an LSR dosing system from Fluid Automation. (717) 764-6818 • www.engelglobal.com/na
