Tooling at NPE: Valve Gates & Multi-Tips Top the News In Hot Runners
There’s no letup in development of sophisticated hot-runner nozzles and controls. Here’s news in these and other tooling products at the show.
American Injection Molding Institute: ‘A New Kind of Plastics Education’
Building 'foundational knowledge' and critical thinking skills.
Beaumont Creates American Injection Molding Institute
Beaumont Technologies , Erie, Penn., is launching an injection molding certification program, hoping to fill the yawning skills gap facing the industry with some very well-known instructors.
INJECTION MOLDING: Software for Moldability Analysis
Software to handle data provided by new 'real-world' testing.
A New Look at Evaluating Fill Times For Injection Molding
One of the important process parameters to establish and record for any injection molded part is its injection or fill time. Research research reveals the limitations of popularly taught methods of establishing this critical parameter.
High-Flow PEEK Makes Small, Intricate Pipette Tips
WEB EXCLUSIVE: An unfilled grade of Victrex 90 Series high-flow PEEK from Victrex USA was used to mold small medical pipette tips.
TOOLING AT NPE: Hot Runners & Coinjection Grab Spotlight
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.
‘How Will It Mold?’ Brand-New Test Method Relates Material, Mold & Machine
It's the first material characterization method developed specifically for evaluating the injection moldability of a plastic melt.
New Way to Characterize Moldability Of Resins & Part/Tool Designs
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.
Why Multi-Cavity Molds Fill Unevenly
Balanced filling is critical for making identical parts, achieving high CPKs, holding tight tolerances, and getting “good” data from design of experiments.
Balanced Filling Is Critical for Holding Molding Tolerances
Processors face a multitude of challenges whenever they approach an injection molding machine.
Incoe & Beaumont to Represent Each Other
Incoe Corp., Troy, Mich., and Beaumont Technologies, Inc. (BTI), Erie, Pa., have agreed to allow each to sell the other’s products.
New Service Verifies Flow-Simulation Predictions
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.
New Mold-Balancing Inserts
Beaumont Technologies, Inc., Erie, Pa., is now introducing its In-Mold Adjustable Rheological Control (iMARC) mold inserts for commercial sale.
Unbalanced? No Shortage of Ways to Fix Uneven Filling of Multi-Cavity Molds
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.
New TPE and Rubber Presses Optimize Melt Flow
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.
Mold Simulation Handles More Multi-Cavity Layouts
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.
Get Control Of Flow in 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.
New Way to Solve Mold-Filling Problems
"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.
