Injection Molding: Nonreturn Valves Get Improved Wear Protection
Wittmann Battenfeld showed upgraded check valves at K 2019.
At the recent K 2019 show in Germany, Wittmann Battenfeld presented its new generation of nonreturn valves with increased wear protection by “casement armoring.” Wittmann also says these valves benefit from improved flow design.
Improved rheological design is also cited for Wittmann Battenfeld’s new check valves.
At press time, a handful of auxiliary suppliers shared some of their K 2019 plans, highlighting connectivity and efficiency in their planned displays.
Three, four, five and six axes; high speed and high payload capacities; low-cost models; and collaborative robots made news at K. There were also QMC systems and AGVs.
Foboha brought a new concept to the world of cube molds, splitting top from bottom to handle different materials.
