Yizumi-HPM Introduces Molding Auxiliaries
Yizumi-HPM will be able to supply complete molding cells.
At an October open house at its technical center in Iberia, Ohio, Yizumi-HPM Corp. showed off three new series of injection machines tailored for the U.S. market (see August Keeping Up for details), along with a new line of robots and other auxiliaries that allow the company to supply complete molding cells.

As previously reported, the robots span a range from sprue pickers to three-axis Cartesian models for presses up to 4000 tons. The auxiliaries include portable chillers (a 10-ton model is pictured), TCUs, dryers, and hoppers.
Five years ago, in-mold labeling was just gaining traction among North American injection molders as a one-step approach to decorating without secondary operations.
With so many choices available today, it’s important for molders to understand the pros and cons of Cartesian vs. articulated-arm robots and how their capabilities overlap more than ever before.
