Rapid Prototype WorkCell is a new four-part program that includes a modular mold system; a 3D-cavity set made of steel, plastic, or aluminum inserts; a dedicated molding press; and dedicated design engineers to manage the customer's entire process.
Among future additions will be a 1300-ton MX injection molding press and foam scoring/trimming systems.
The molding press for the new system is a 4000-ton vertical compression press that boasts 124 inches of daylight, a 112-inch stroke, and a minimum shut height of 12 inches.
The conveyor is designed to minimize the potential for preform damage: from the injection molding press to the product accumulation gaylord.
Adding interest is the fact that this part was molded on a Krauss-Maffei Injection Molding Compounder (IMC), a machine that mounts a twin-screw extruder over the plunger of a two-stage molding press. The twin-screw pulls in continuous strands of glass, mixes and wets them with PP, coupling agent, black concentrate, and regrind before feeding it to the injection plunger.
The Soft-TEC conveyor is designed to minimize the potential for preform damage: from the injection molding press to the product accumulation gaylord.
The result is trimmed in a robotic cutting cell using high-pressure water, then placed by robot in a horizontal 2500-ton standard-issue injection molding press.
An 18" x 18", 75 ton compression molding press is said to be a solidly built press with two electric platens and 3" diameter strain rods.
All that's needed is to run a single wire from the molding press to the box.
And since the Rollaveyor unit receives parts directly from the molding press via conveyor, it keeps pace with production, reduces handling, and eliminates parts storage.
It can accommodate "virtually any" major manufacturer's molding press or deflashing system, according to Hull/finmac.
Model FWR fixed-wrist, economical unit mounts on the stationary platen of the molding press and requires minimal over-machine working space to extract shots to 30 lb from single- or multiple-cavity molds.
