Why Blum Went All Tiebarless

One of the first adopters of tiebarless injection machines a quarter-century ago uses them exclusively, both here and in Europe. One reason is their ability to handle oversized molds with awkward projections on smaller presses.

Emerging Technologies in the Spotlight

Smart packaging, additive manufacturing, Industry 4.0, completely reimagining the injection molding machine—those are just some of the topics to be tackled in the Emerging Technologies session at Molding 2016.

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.

Happy Birthday to the Reciprocating Screw!

2016 marks the 60th anniversary of the patenting of the reciprocating screw injection molding machine, and there are some who argue little has changed in the technology in the intervening six decades.

OVERVIEW:
All Electric & Hybrid Machines

allelectricIM.jpg

All-electric molding machines use servo motors in lieu of hydraulics to drive all the processes such as injection, clamping, plasticating. They are said to be cleaner, quieter and more energy efficient that hydraulic machines. So-called hybrid machines marry both hydraulic and electric technologies, generally a hydraulic drive for injection and clamp machine functions and an electric drive for screw recovery
