All-electric Sodick V-Line injection molding press of 100 tons is a first for Plustech.

At the NPE2018 show in Orlando, Fla. (Booth W782), Plustech Inc., Schaumburg, Ill., will show off its first Sodick all-electric machine, Sodick model MS100. This 100-ton two-stage model incorporates the company’s V-Line two-stage injection system, with an inclined stationary screw mounted over a horizontal plunger. A new toggle design is said to contribute faster cycles and energy savings. It will run a mold with conformal cooling produced on the company’s new OPM250 metal 3D printer, also on display at NPE (see separate item).

Also on display will be a 20-ton vertical LP20VRE press with rotary table, designed for micro overmolding; a Sodick 30-ton horizontal GL30A-LP, the company’s flagship micromolder; and a 60-ton GL60A “Global Platform” horizontal press. All of these use the V-Line system.

The GL60A will demonstrate the next-generation Meltflipper test tool from Beaumont Technologies, Inc., Erie, Pa. (NPE Booths S29023, W2193). The cavity balance achieved with the Meltflipper will be monitored by Sodick’s new cavity-pressure monitoring system.
