Bigger ‘Boy’ Debuts At Fakuma
Boy extended the size range of its injection line to 125 metric tons (137.5 U.S. tons), up from a maximum of 100 m.t. (110 U.S.) previously.
At the Fakuma show in Germany, the parent company of Boy Machines Inc., Exton, Pa., extended the size range of the Boy injection press line to 125 metric tons (137.5 U.S. tons), up from a maximum of 100 m.t. (110 U.S.) previously. The new Boy 125 E servohydraulic machine has tiebar spacing of 18.5 by 16.93 in., up from 16.93 by 14.17 in.; and max. daylight is 32.48 in., vs. 28.54 in. standard before. This provides more room, for example, when using a rotary platen for multicomponent applications, as was demonstrated at the show. The machine will be available next spring.
Most molders work with two parameters for establishing second-stage pressure. But within Scientific Molding there are actually four.
Over the past decade, soft-touch overmolding has radically changed the look, feel, and function of a broad range of consumer products.
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.
