Augmented Auxiliaries At K 2016
Incremental improvements to existing technologies combined with altogether new advances at the giant show.
K 2016 Injection Molding: Rapid Pace of Development of New Machines & Controls
Servo drives dominate. Other trends include multitouch screens, adding materials data to process controls, and Industry 4.0 connectivity.
K 2016 Preview: Injection Molding
Adapting injection molding to the concept of Industry 4.0 is gaining momentum. At this show you’ll see that the interconnected, integrated “factory of the future” is almost here.
Two-Shot Molding Helps Make Reshoring Cost-Effective
With help from labor-saving technology, a maker of children’s dinnerware finds a ‘Made in USA’ solution to quality & delivery issues.
Beefier All-Electric Machines With Enhanced Control Features
Presses designed to dismiss the perception that all-electrics can’t handle larger, heavier molds.
Rethinking the Injection Screw: Is It a Trend?
Renowned screw designer Robert F. Dray wrote to me recently, lamenting that injection molding screw design has not received the kind of attention that the extrusion industry has paid to perfecting this fundamental processing component.
INJECTION MOLDING: New Electric Press Series Geared for Mid-Sized Molding
Highly spec'ed presses handle bigger, heavier molds for mid-sized automotive and other parts.
Ten Intriguing Injection Molding Technologies of 2015
I know I’m leaving myself wide open on this one. I was asked, “What are the 10 most interesting injection molding technologies of 2015?” I should have pleaded eggnog hangover and politely declined.
Highlights of Fakuma 2015
A selection of the hottest news and molding trends at this “little brother” to the K Show.
Have You Ever Seen Faster?

Overmolded UD tapes replace organosheet with major weight savings. And 4 PP cups molded in 1.55 sec.
A Very Small World: Micromolding at Makuta
Makuta Technics sweats the tiny details so it can run ‘lights out’ most of the day.
Betting on Biopolymers
A new injection molding business is focused 100% on compostable, plant-based polymers.
INJECTION MOLDING AT NPE: Presses, Robots & Cell Automation
Everything molders need to compete in markets from automotive to medical was on display in Orlando. Besides a huge number of new machine models, there was emphasis on cell integration and automation.
News Highlights from NPE2015
Here’s a first look at new technology in materials, auxiliaries, and all types of processes.
INJECTION MOLDING AT NPE: Molding Exhibits Show Off Cell Integration with Multiple Processes & Operations
If you’re interested in lightweight composites, IML, LSR, multi-shot, inmold assembly, barrier coinjection, micromolding, variotherm molding, foams, energy-saving presses, robots, hot runners, and tooling—they’re all here in force.
INJECTION MOLDING: All-Electric Press for Thicker Parts
New version provides longer and higher pack/hold pressures.
Key Themes from the Fakuma Show
Servo-hydraulics, servo sprue pickers, electronic water-flow monitoring/control, and exotic multi-process cells were the headliners in Friedrichshafen.
Three Themes at Fakuma Show
Servo hydraulics are becoming standard; servo pickers proliferate; water flow monitoring and control are new focus.
Injection Molding at K 2013: Doing More with Less
More productivity with less energy consumption and capital investment; more operations in the machine or manufacturing cell with less time, labor, energy, and capital—these were the common themes of injection molding exhibits at October’s K 2013 show.
