CLICK FOR VIDEO ON EXCLUSIVE Z-MOLDING TECHNOLOGY
Sumitomo Demag's Z-Molding combines three unique systems to help molders eliminate defects in injection molded parts. The Flow Front Control (FFC) system achieves complete and balanced filling with reduced injection pressure. FFC takes advantage of the energy in the flow front of the resin to complete filling in an even fashion as opposed to forcing material into open areas and flashing areas that were already filled. The Minimum Clamping Molding (MCM) system reduces clamp force requirements and ensures optimized venting of gases. MCM automatically detects the minimum point at which the mold halves are completely parallel and surface pressure is evenly distributed across the mold faces. And the Simple Process Setting (SPS) system provides fast, guided setup, and ease of use and machine optimization.
