Laser sinter metal powder and perform CNC machining of tooling components in the same machine.
Injection Molding: Two-Shot Screw/Plunger Machines Now Come Standard
New horizontal injection machines feature two-shot capability as standard.
Micromolder’s Business Rests On Four Key Technologies
The “four legs” that support Isometric Micro Molding are micro molds, micro injection molding, micro automation, and CT scanning.
Two-Stage Injection Meets Molder’s Need for High Precision
Fixed screw and plunger with no check ring hold tolerances of millionths of an inch.
INJECTION MOLDING AT NPE: Presses, Robots & Cell Automation
Everything molders need to compete in markets from automotive to medical was on display in Orlando. Besides a huge number of new machine models, there was emphasis on cell integration and automation.
INJECTION MOLDING AT NPE: Molding Exhibits Show Off Cell Integration with Multiple Processes & Operations

Micromolding Gets Bigger at Tessy Plastics
Micro parts are a tiny but fast-growing segment of its custom molding business, with potential to expand beyond the medical sector.
B&B Molders Sticks to Its Core— Core Values & Core Competencies
To compete in today’s market, you need good technology, but you also need to know what you stand for and what you’re good at.
Moldmaker Explores New LSR Molding Technologies
Can liquid silicone rubber (LSR ) be overmolded onto polypropylene?
Injection Molding: Speed, Automation & Integration
Hot buttons at the show will be multi-component molding, in-mold labeling/decorating (IML/IMD), in-mold assembly, medical molding, liquid silicone rubber (LSR), micro-molding, and high-speed packaging.
Micro Molder & Mold Maker Succeeds by Specializing
How small is small? How small is micro? How about parts weighing as little as 0.00012 g and measuring no more than 0.038 in. (1 mm) long?
Hybrid Injection Clamps The Best of Both Worlds?
In between all-electric and hydraulic-powered injection machines, a new species of hybrid clamp has emerged. Advocates say it combines the best qualities of electric servos and hydraulics without their disadvantages.
NPE 2009 Wrap-Up: New Machinery for Injection Molding
New injection machinery at the show ranged from all-electric units for high-speed packaging or bioplastic processing to hybrid presses ready for the cleanroom. Other units highlighted multi-component molding with LSR and thermoplastics or super-compact presses for small parts. Several new machines targeted specific applications such as caps and closures, PET preforms, LSR, or integrated long-glass compounding.
NPE News in Injection Molding
If a better machine can help your company beat challenging economic conditions, you’ll probably find it at NPE. And finding it will be easier, thanks to our editors’ efforts to sift out of some 2000 exhibits the most significant news in injection and blow molding, extrusion, compounding, and thermoforming.
Injection Molding LSR: Three 'M's of Innovation: Mega, Micro, and Multi
Liquid silicone rubber is breaking out of its niche into a broader array of applications, helped by new developments in materials, machinery, and processing. Larger parts, micro-parts, foams, and multi-color or multi-material combinations are key areas of innovation.
Electric, Hydraulic, or Hybrid? What's the Right Injection Press for You?
If you were buying an injection molding machine 20 years ago, you had to decide between a toggle or fully hydraulic clamp and that was pretty much it.
