Follow These Tips to Give Your Granulator Blades the Edge
Here are answers to some frequently asked questions—and troubleshooting advice—to help you maintain your granulator blades.
New Technology Opens a Predictive Window Onto Screw Wear
Despite their integral role in transforming pellets fed through the hopper into parts ejected from the mold, visibility into the performance, health and efficiency of screws is difficult to discern for many reasons, not the least of which being the fact they’re located inside a barrel.
PTA Plastics Adds Six Injection Molding Machines
The injection molder split the new Engel and Wittmann Battenfeld machines between its facilities in Longmont, Colo. and Oxford, Conn.
20 Good Things to Come Out of 2020—Part 4
Good news was there if you knew where to look for it—in the pages of Plastics Technology magazine or right here on our website. Here’s a review of headlines you can feel good about.
Internal Air Cooling Systems Speed Blow Molding
Chilled compressed air cools parts from the inside while the mold cools them on the outside.
European Machinery Suppliers See Steadying Markets
After a sharp drop in activity at the start of the year, the German plastics and rubber machinery sector has corrected with 2020 orders tracking only 3% below 2019 levels, while Austria’s Engel and Wittmann Battenfeld saw North American bright spots.
How to Automate High-Precision ‘Micro’ Insert Molding
What does it take to automate a horizontal injection molding cell to handle micro-sized inserts and molded parts? General-purpose top-entry robots and tooling may not be up to the job.
Wittmann Battenfeld Moves Into New Brazilian Location
Originally planned for March, the move to the larger site was delayed until August due to COVID-19.
Lights Out, Pristine Production In
The numbers beggar belief and the business belies description—Medical Components of America has six full-time employees, six injection machines and lights-out production that’s gone five years without shipping a bad part or missing a delivery.
Process Heating/Cooling: Directly Cooled Pressurized Temperature Control Unit
New single- and dual-circuit directly cooled models were added to a recently launched pressurized temperature control unit (TCU) line.
Process Heating/Cooling: Compact Digital Water Distributor Mounts Close to the Mold
Reduced distance from the tool for Wittmann Battenfeld’s new WFC 120 digital water distributor means reduced pressure loss for the heating/cooling system.
Automation: New A-C Servo Axis Reduces Weight, Boosts Robot’s Payload
A newly developed direct drive from Wittmann Battenfeld and a re-design of the supporting structure has lightened the unit by 40% over its predecessor.
Automation: Robot Series Extended to Support Larger Machines
Wittmann Battenfeld latest Primus robot—48/48T—can support injection molding machines with up to 1200 tons of clamping force.
MES Platform Adds Energy Monitoring Module
Wittmann Battenfeld’s TEMI+ manufacturing execution system (MES) software has added the IMAGOxt software module to track energy consumption and more on a plant floor.
Drying: Compressed-Air Dryers
Billed as Flexible
Mount directly on machine feed.
A Window of Opportunity Opens to One Million Parts a Day
Injection molder and moldmaker Lawrence Industries was founded on the promise of plastics as a replacement for metal in window hardware—a market it now dominates.
Automation: Digital Twin Allows Slow-Motion “Replays” of Robot Movements
Wittmann Battenfeld say all data are recorded in the R9 control’s video assistance system within 4 msec and can be traced back into the past for up to 100 seconds, letting molders replay incidents.
Process Heating/Cooling: Pressurized Temperature Controller Adds Direct Cooling Model
Wittmann Battenfeld says the Tempro plus D120 temperature control unit (TCU) complements the Tempro plus D100 unit, providing a pressurized TCU of similar size with direct cooling.
Automation: Robot Line Redesigned
Wittmann Battenfeld says new WX153 is fully updated version of the W8 pro series launched in 2013.
Low-Pressure Injection Process Facilitates ‘Green Molding’
Besides speed and quality advantages, the low-pressure iMFLUX process is said to enhance sustainability—easing use of recycled and biobased materials, saving energy, reducing scrap, and adding lightweighting potential. See what molders say about these “green” benefits.
