An extra-thin, high production rate 5 L bucket mould: for competitiveness and improved quality of the finished part.
Injection moulding simulation tools are made more readily accessible thanks to the simplification of the user interfaces and the automation of searches for optimisation solutions.
Whether in the cosmetics sector or the automotive sector – metallic quality surfaces are needed more than ever for 3D coatings in the decorative sector. However, the coating of sensitive hardware is usually an expensive step. A new, fully automated 3D inline coating system is able to operate directly from the big pack to the finished product, saving time-consuming manual work. This is especially true for high-end cosmetic products as processes in bulk are not always possible, nor desirable from a surface protection standpoint.
Injection waste (sprues, defective parts) have value if they are directly reintroduced into the injection process. How is injection waste treated beside-thepress by our foreign neighbours?
The technology of blasting dry ice micro-particles patented by Cold Jet offers the most efficient type of cleaning for many applications.
Monitoring the injection moulding process, from the start of production, contributes significantly to reduced waste and ensures stable heat exchange throughout the production process.
Slip additives are required to allow easier processing and handling of polyolefins. However, performance needs in complex and sensitive applications increasingly demand more from an additive. Standard slip additives will break down under stressed conditions and degradation products can create unwanted issues such as tackiness, bloom, odour, change in colour, impact on taste and reduced performance. As Incroslip SL is fully saturated it exhibits excellent oxidative stability and maintains high slip performance. This true innovation will be presented in this paper.
Increasingly sophisticated adhesives; inks that need to resist every environment; material structures that can accept no pollution: these are all interfacing constraints for different materials, for which surface treatments exist.
Biosourced and/or biodegradable plastic materials are becoming more and more prevalent in the field of plastics manufacturing, and can provide answers in terms of development, environmental impact and the recycling of waste or by-products.
The co-rotating twin-screw extruder is a modular, continuous, dynamic mixer adaptable to different types of production such as: polymerisation, recycling, adhesives, and plastic and rubber compounding.
