Injection Molding: ‘Value-Priced’ Servo-Hydraulic Toggle Presses from Taiwan
Asian Plastic Machinery’s new EV2 line is available here from Cincinnati Process Technologies.
Cincinnati Process Technologies (CPT), Cincinnati, has introduced to the U.S. the new Super Master EV2 Series of servo-hydraulic toggle presses from Asian Plastic Machinery,
sub. of Chen Hsong Group of Taiwan. This “value-priced” line ranges from 88 to 1099 tons. According to CPT general manager Mike Green, these machines use up to 80% less energy and water than standard hydraulic presses and also reduce noise levels. The Smart Mold Controller with B&R 10.4-in. display allows operators to profile stages of injection speed, holding pressure, backpressure, and screw rpm with closed-loop control. Pricing starts in the “low $40,000 range,” according to CPT, making the EV2 Series unusually affordable for its capabilities.
CPT will exhibit at NPE 2018 in Orlando, Fla., in May. It will not have an EV2 model, but will operate one of its higher-end TSV Series servo-hydraulic toggles with an IML system.
One of the more prominent trends in processing is the need for higher plastic pressures to mold parts.
One of the important process parameters to establish and record for any injection molded part is its injection or fill time. Research research reveals the limitations of popularly taught methods of establishing this critical parameter.
Flashing of a part can occur for several reasons—from variations in the process or material to tooling trouble.
