Double magnets boost clamp force and temperature range.

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.
