Offers a unique and high level of development, training, and consulting services for the injection molding industry. Focus on polymer flow and rheology has driven internal development of patented products revolving around the melt delivery system. We offer complete rheological control systems for hot and cold runner systems. Worked in unison with Incoe Corp. to produce the industry's next generation of optimized hot runner manifolds that eliminate the shear-induced imbalances found within traditional hot runner designs. The end result was the Opti-Flo hot runner system. Utilizes cutting-edge software, such as MPI from Autodesk and Moldex3D from CoreTech Systems Co. Ltd. Our advanced knowledge of polymer flow, processing, and melt delivery system optimization combined with understanding both the capabilities and limitations of the simulation software allow us to ensure a complete and accurate report is given to our customers. Plastics Professional Training Series emphasizes fundamental plastic principles to teach state-of-the-art design, process, and diagnostic procedures. Five-Step Process-Systematic Mold Balance Analysis software is a template driven database software designed to take the mystery out of diagnosing mold filling and part quality variations. Used for new mold start-ups or problematic existing molds, the data provided by the software will aid in reducing the mold approval/commissioning time and the overall time to market, particularly when used in conjunction with rheological control systems.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: An unfilled grade of Victrex 90 Series high-flow PEEK from Victrex USA was used to mold small medical pipette tips.
Tooling innovations at NPE focused primarily on multi-cavity closure and medical applications, though there was also a substantial emphasis on large automotive and appliance parts.
It's the first material characterization method developed specifically for evaluating the injection moldability of a plastic melt.
Experienced injection molders have long known that a resin’s melt flow index (MFI), measured under very low-shear conditions, provides very little information about how it will process under many orders of magnitude higher shear in an actual mold.
Balanced filling is critical for making identical parts, achieving high CPKs, holding tight tolerances, and getting “good” data from design of experiments.
Processors face a multitude of challenges whenever they approach an injection molding machine.
Incoe Corp., Troy, Mich., and Beaumont Technologies, Inc. (BTI), Erie, Pa., have agreed to allow each to sell the other’s products.
An economical approach to verifying that computer-aided flow simulation will give an accurate molding prediction with your particular resin is offered as a new service from Beaumont Technologies, Inc., Erie, Pa.
Beaumont Technologies, Inc., Erie, Pa., is now introducing its In-Mold Adjustable Rheological Control (iMARC) mold inserts for commercial sale.
The accepted ground rule for balancing melt flow in multi-cavity injection molds is to achieve equal flow distance from the injection point to each cavity.
A new line of presses for TPE or rubber is said to trim cure times by up to 50%. New TurboCure presses from Rep Corp., Bartlett, Ill., feature meltflow enhancements in the injection unit and the mold.
A novel technology allows injection molders to alter the flow pattern inside the cavity and balance the filling of multiple cavities by means of an external mold adjustment while the tool remains in the press. In this exclusive article, the system's inventor explains how it works.
Several new multi-cavity mold configurations and new graphics mark the latest version of the "5 Step Process" software for mold-balance analysis and filling diagnostics.
"In-Mold Adjustable Rheological Control," or iMARC, is a new tooling concept that provides an externally adjustable means of varying how melt flows in a cavity without in any way restricting the flow (unlike valve gates, for example). Now in beta testing, iMARC is a further development of the Melt Flipper technology from Beaumont Technologies, Inc., Erie, Pa.
New version 1.2 of "5 Step Process" mold-debugging software from Beaumont Technologies Inc., Erie, Pa., incorporates new graphics and adds 12 new multi-cavity mold configurations.
What should have been a routine injection molding job was plagued with problems right from the start.
From complete hot halves to individual nozzles, a host of new products promise smaller gate vestiges, less maintenance, better temperature control, and lower cost.
