Hilma Division of Carr Lane Roemheld Mfg. Co., Fenton, Mo., will display magnetic clamp systems specifically designed for injection molding machines at NPE2015. The company notes that its M-TECS 130 system’s long pole technology uses double magnets to reportedly provide up to 20% more clamping force. The system can also withstand temperatures up to 130°C (266°F). Hilma says the magnetic systems offer quick changes of different size molds without the need for retooling.
