A new vertical-injection/vertical-clamp press designed specifically for molding thermoplastic elasomers comes from REP Corp., Bartlett, Ill., a major French-based supplier of rubber injection machinery. Its new 26-ton V18TPR press, the smallest in the line, has a specially designed reciprocating-screw injection unit that provides shot sizes from 700 cc to 60 liters. Accurate shot control and temperature regulation reportedly can eliminate the need for shutoff nozzles. The injection unit is mounted on a C-frame press. Tel: (847) 697-7210 . www.rep.tm.fr
