Reusable Insulation Blanket for Processing Machinery
Can be used on any style extruder, as well as extruder barrels, heads and injection and blow molding machines.
Designed to cut down on energy, retain radiant heat and boost safety, the model MT850SSi thermal blanket from Shannon Global Energy Solutions can be used on any style extruder, as well as extruder barrels, heads and injection and blow molding machines.
The thermal blankets are removable and reusable, so maintenance workers and equipment operators can easily install and reinstall them after removing them from a component to adjust or service processing machinery. Shannon’s latest design creates a thermal barrier and doubles as a safety feature for employees, while achieving thermal efficiency with a maximum thermal capacity of 850 F.
All of Shannon’s reusable thermal insulation blankets come with an ID tag to describe location and the component to which each belongs. Shannon also includes a hot-surface label to warn operators of high temperature. Shannon stores its insulation blanket production drawings on a CAD drawing system, so processors can reorder blankets or request replacement parts for up to 10 years.
Flashing of a part can occur for several reasons—from variations in the process or material to tooling trouble.
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.
Weld or knit lines are perhaps the most common and difficult injection molding defect to eliminate.
