The sensors feature simple and low-cost mounting, usually in a pocket in the clamping plate
on the ejector side.
A real highlight of the M-TECS 240-G is the magnetic clamping plate
with an integral heating plate.
The insulator sheets are used on molds and dies between the top clamping plate
and the stationary platen and between the bottom of the ejector housing and the movable platen.
After a suitable clamping plate
has been chosen for the respective work piece and has been taken from the system shelf it is a simple step to centre and strain the part on the clamping plate
with the help of shoulder screws (see figure 5).
With the system, the clamping plate
is freely accessible from above and residual sand is discharged in a targeted way at the bottom.
To mitigate this, molders often place an insulator board or plate between the mold clamping plate
and the platen.
Since the mold is clamped directly on the magnetic clamping plate
on the full surface, without any isolating T-slots, temperature transfer is very homogeneous and not subject to variations.
Enerpac's electromagnetic clamping system uses permanent magnets to generate a strong magnetic field in the clamping plate
, explains the manufacturer, holding the mold securely in place.
Take the insulator boards off the clamping plate
. Put them between the mold and the clamping plate
and gun drill the clamping plate
for cooling lines.
This changeover is done by turning over the front clamping plate
, installing the 0[degrees] lead cutter with a slight float, and using Madison's CCGX reaming inserts.
