A Message from IMS Industrial Molding Supplies

Think IMS for Injection Molding, Mold Making and Extrusion.

At IMS, our mission “to assure you with the most satisfying purchasing experience in the industry, while providing the best molding equipment and supplies at attractive prices”, still holds true as when we opened our doors in 1949.

As Seen In Plastics Technology

TOOLING: New Equipment & Chemicals for Mold & Parts Cleaning
Laser and ultrasonic cleaning systems and spray-on mold cleaners.

TOOLING: Economical Sprue Pullers And Metal Polish Debut
Bronze tools more durable than brass, and a line of mold-care pastes and polishes.

HEATING/COOLING: Water-cooled temperature controller utilizes stainless steel and glycol for longer life
Longer life, greater efficiency, and higher accuracy are designed into a new water-cooled temperature controller, according to its manufacturer.

AUXILIARIES: Portable Air-Cooled Circulator for Molds
New Hydra air-cooled circulator from IMS can both heat and cool molds without external water, sewer, and cooling tower costs.

Auxiliaries at NPE: News in Materials Handling, Cooling, Granulating, Welding, Testing, Decorating
Auxiliary equipment takes in a broad range of functions, from materials preparation to post-mold finishing.

Heated Gate Cutters Trim More Cleanly

Heated Gate Cutters Trim More Cleanly
Heated gate cutters are once again available from IMS Co., Chagrin Falls, Ohio.

Pressurized Hot-Water Temperature Controller
The Hydra pressurized-water mold-temperature controller is newly available from IMS Co., Chagrin Falls, Ohio.

Gate Cutters Reach Into Confined Spaces
Two new models have been added to an economical series of heavy-duty, 6-in. gate cutters first introduced in early 2005.

Heaters and Temperature Controllers for Molders
Economical band and cartridge heaters and single-zone temperature controllers were recently added to the line of products for injection molders from IMS Co., Chagrin Falls, Ohio.

Mold Releases Are Free of Flammable Solvents
Three new non-flammable mold releases from IMS Co., Chagrin Falls, Ohio, are alternatives to formulations containing flammable or chemically aggressive ingredients.

Resin Dryers: Which Type Is Right for You?
Processors today face bewildering choices of at least five basic types of dryers, whose capabilities are subject to conflicting claims from equipment suppliers. For the buyer, the most basic questions are: How much drying is needed for the job and which dryer types are up to the task?

NPE Newsfinder: Heating and Cooling
Band-heater developments at the show are focused on high-temperature applications such as “thixomolding” and on prolonging heater life by minimizing leaks.

NPE Newsfinder: Injection Molding
The abundance of injection molding news at this year’s show is staggering.

Injection Molding
The abundance of injection molding news at this year’s show is staggering. There are more and bigger all-electric machines than ever, including first-time introductions by several suppliers. Electric technology is also taking new forms, such as beltless drives and “direct-pressure” clamping without a toggle. Energy-saving electro-hydraulic hybrids are also evolving.
