Woojin Plaimm introduces HD-A5 series with web-enabled B&R controls.

Woojin Plaimm of South Korea showed off its new HD-A5 series of fully hydraulic presses with energy-efficient servo pump at October’s Fakuma 2018 show in Germany. Offered in sizes of 100 to 400 metric tons (U.S. office in Mount Prospect, Ill.), they are aimed at precision molding for automotive, electronics, and other industries. These units boast a central clamp cylinder, linear guides, swiveling injector, and new IMC 500 controller from B&R of Austria. The latter has an 18.5-in., full-HD, multi-touch screen and web connectivity that enables access via smartphone, tablet, or PC. OPC-UA communications protocol for Industry 4.0 can be implemented on this controller.

    Conventional molding techniques are not effective with high-temperature materials. Molders need to be aware of certain conditions and parameters to handle problems sometimes posed by high-heat injection molding.

  • Radiation Crosslinking Boosts Nylon Properties

    Demand for more robust plastics is creating new opportunities for radiation-crosslinked nylons, including nylon 6 and 66, which can serve as cost-effective alternatives to higher-cost, high-heat thermoplastics. Crosslinked nylons have higher heat resistance than their standard counterparts, along with better physical properties and abrasion resistance. Adapted from a paper presented at SPE ANTEC 2012.
