Plastic Industry Forum - Converse with Plastics Processing Leaders / Equipment / Needed. Sampling press for tool tryout 200 ton vertical/vertical rotory.
Posted:  28 Mar 2016 20:23
Sample Molding Time Wanted;

We are looking for a 200 ton vertical clamp / vertical  injection unit on a rotary table to sample our new mold.  Early May is when we would like 3 -4 days of support and the beginning of June for 3-4 days.. The shot size is 128 cm^3 using a glass filled polyester. We will be insert molding terminals for this trial and is one of the primary reasons for the Vertical clamp configuration.  The injection rate we are looking for is 400 cm^3 / sec to fill the 4 cavities. If the available machine does not have this capability, we can still utilize the press anyway. The mold has a hot runner system and we will provide our own 240 Volt control unit. The process will require at least one thermolator for 170 F water temperature and we will also require a dehumidifying dryer. Finally, the table size required is 1600 mm with a base weight of 800 pounds, the “A” side weighs about 1700 pounds.  Mold size is 18.5 x 34.5 x 23 inches tall. Please contact us for further arrangements.
