Special additive offers economical microcellular foaming for low-volume jobs with PE, PP.
There was no shortage of new thermoplastics and additives covering the full range of end-use applications.
After two years of behind-the-scenes development, a new process for lightweight bottles emerges into the open.
Reduced clamp force, shorter cycles, lower melt viscosity, and higher dimensional stability are just some of the purported benefits of foam injection molding.
Collaboration produces 10%-glass PP for the MuCell foam process without surface swirl.
Milacron pulled out the stops at the largest booth in the show.
Council advises the Secretary of Commerce on government policies and programs that affect U.S. manufacturing and recommend ways to ensure that the U.S. remains the preeminent destination for investment in manufacturing across the globe.
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.
Trexel has licensed Milacron to supply turnkey MuCell systems for injection and blow molding, and joined with Lubrizol to develop a new TPU foam technology.
Trexel has announced machinery (Milacron) and materials (Lubrizol) deals, as well as a long-running application partner (New Balance).
CLF's latest injection molding machine won a top innovation prize from Taipei Plas show organizers, but Trexel believes it violates its global microcellular foam patents.
A new process-control method picks up variations in melt quality and viscosity during the injection phase and equalizes them within the same shot.
All-electric machines of all types were the stars of the show, but there were a number of other noteworthy developments.
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.
Here’s just a taste of the innovations on display, a selection of the top headlines not covered in our September show preview.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Trexel, MuCell, debut new technologies for automotive lightweighting.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: At K 2013, injection machine builder introduces the Freeformer, a novel machine for additive manufacturing.. But there was plenty to see in hot runners, LSR processing, and lightweighting as well.
Next month’s mammoth triennial plastics show in Düsseldorf, Germany, challenges injection molding machine builders to demonstrate technological leadership in addressing the needs of the marketplace.
“Go faster” and “integrate more functions” look to be the guiding principles of new injection molding developments to be shown by Engel Austria at K 2013 in Dusseldorf this October.
The potential for new or unusual materials to broaden the application potential of standard plastics processes was explored in a number of papers at April’s SPE ANTEC conference in Orlando, Fla.
