Rapid Heat & Cool Molding Evolves to Meet Industry Challenges
Technical capabilities of the process have advanced to erase former cycle-time penalties, and ongoing developments address creation of a materials database and new applications in hybrid composite injection overmolding.

Yizumi-HPM is molding this briefcase using MuCell foaming together with rapid heat/cool molding.

NPE2018 New Technology Focus: Foam Fascination
A new physical foaming process and a significant enhancement of the MuCell process attract attention at the show.

Industry 4.0 explained by VDMA

Injection Molding at NPE2018: A Showplace for the ‘Smart Factory’
In Orlando, you’ll glimpse the future, and it’s automated and interconnected. But don’t worry, there are plenty of ways for plants of all sizes to get in on these trends.

Roctool rapid heat/cool molding

Rapid Heat/Cool Molding with Induction Heating Achieves ‘High Definition’ Mold-Surface Replication
At least three exhibits will show the benefits of rapid heat/cool molding with Roctool’s induction heating.

Trexel MuCell P-Series for thin-wall packaging.

New Foaming Technology for Thin-Wall Parts
Trexel’s new MuCell P-Series nitrogen dosing equipment enables greater lightweighting of thin-wall packaging than ever possible before.

Milacron-Fanuc Roboshot 500

Really Big Machines Dominate Milacron Booth
The largest machine at this NPE—or any NPE to date—is Milacron’s new 2250-ton Cincinnati machine. Not to mention the massive platen of a 6600-tonner now under construction, also on view.

Roctool Creates Design Team to Assist Customers’ Product Development
Roctool offers help in developing products using rapid heat/cool injection molding with induction heating.

Heat/Cool Molding Technology

Heat/Cool Molding Gets A Workout at Fakuma 2017
KraussMaffei will demonstrate extremely fine mold-surface replication and the wide range of decorative effects possible without secondary processes using RocTool heat/cool molding technology.

RocTool induction heating compression molding tool

Leading-Edge Molding Technology Installed at ORNL
Roctool’s induction-powered heating/cooling equipment to further development of composites.

KraussMaffei and Roctool collaborate on HD Plastics

KraussMaffei and Roctool Sign Global Collaboration Agreement
KraussMaffei joins with Roctool to promote hot/cold molding technology with rapid induction heating to achieve smooth surfaces, superior mold replication.

New Database Documents Advantages Of Rapid Heat/Cool Molding
Enhanced flow and gloss are measured with several different resins.

The Primary Importance of Secondary Equipment
Resin drying, resin conveying and process heating and cooling are as vital to the injection molding process as the press and tool, and they get their due at Molding 2017.

Variotherm Molding Can Double Flow Length, Cut Cavity Pressure By 70%
RocTool’s year-old HD Plastics Materials Database further expanded.

There’s More at Molding 2017
An at-the-press seminar with a Scientific Molding guru and a tour/live demonstration of an innovative rapid mold heating and cooling technology have been added to the long-running event.

Hot Runners & 3D-Printed Molds Headlined at K Show
Automotive was a key focus for hot-runner developments. 3D-printed plastic prototype tools were another highlight.

Molding 2017 Adds Tracks and Special Conference Events
More tracks, more speakers and more opportunities to network and learn, including a pre-conference workshop with John Bozzelli and a post-conference open house at RocTool.

New Use of Induction Heating in Composite Overmolding at K 2016
Induction heats the organosheet in the mold, as well as the injection mold itself.
