Absolute Haitian and iMFLUX Partner
The distributor of Haitian injection molding machines in the U.S. and Canada has partnered with the P&G subsidiary to bring iMFLUX’s low constant-pressure molding platform to the market.
Absolute Haitian (Worcester, Mass.), the sole distributor of Haitian injection molding machines in the U.S. and Canada, and iMFLUX, a subsidiary of Procter and Gamble, have signed a distribution agreement to integrate iMFLUX processing software as an option on Haitian servo-hydraulic and Zhafir electric injection molding machines.
iMFLUX’s low constant-pressure molding platform automatically recognizes changing process and material conditions and adapts in real-time. Utilizing iMFLUX, molders can run an array of materials, including post-consumer recycled content (PCR), with less energy, wear and waste.
At virtual events held by iMFLUX (on May 25) and Absolute Haitian (on June 10), the companies will demonstrate iMFLUX technology on a 618-ton Haitian Jupiter III two-platen, servo-hydraulic press. The JU5500 III will run a four-cavity housewares family mold—two bowls, four spoons and a lid—made from recycled polypropylene. The machine cell integrates automation featuring the Hilectro servo robot and Fanuc collaborative robot.
In 2018, the iMFLUX announced the integration of its technology on select Milacron injection molding machines.
Absolute Haitian will now make iMFLUX low constant-pressure injection molding technology available on select machines for sale in the U.S. and Canada.
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.
Weld or knit lines are perhaps the most common and difficult injection molding defect to eliminate.
It may seem like a dull topic, but it will overcome the emotional experience that follows when you put a new mold into a machine and you find out there is not enough barrel capacity to make a full shot.
