In the Booth:
On display at the Milacron booth will be technologies from Milacron’s industry-leading product brands including Milacron injection and extrusion molding, Mold-Masters hot runners and control systems and DME mold components and industrial supplies. Below you’ll find a complete overview of what you can expect to see from Milacron at Plastimagen 2017.
Milacron Roboshot 330 with Mold-Masters E-Multi Secondary Injection Unit
Milacron is expanding the already vast capability of the Roboshot Series by adding the Mold-Masters E-Multi secondary injection unit. The integrated all-electric design (of both products) provides clean, precise and repeatable molding for any application. Multi-component molding is a sophisticated discipline that is increasingly in demand. Using different materials (and/or dyes) in one product can improve the design and durability while being cost effective and eliminating downstream assembly equipment. This multi-component option is available as a standard option or as an aftermarket retrofit.
- All-electric molding cell
- E-Multi EM1 secondary injection unit and E-Multi controller for multi-material molding
Mold-Masters NEW M-Ax Six Servo Axis Controller
The new Mold-Masters M-Ax servo axis controller is Milacron’s most technologically advanced controller to date. The M-Ax controller has the same powerhouse TempMaster Adaptive Process System (APS) used to control temperature in our entire temperature control line up but also contains an unmatched ability to control motion functions as well. Servo Control functions include valve stems, core pulls, coining plates, index plates, stripper plates, ejector plates as well as driving Mold-Masters technologies like E-Drive syncro plates and Single Electric Valve Gates (SeVG).
Mold-Masters Fusion Series G2 Hot Runner Rev’s up Automotive Molding Operations
Milacron’s Mold-Masters product brand has developed new enhanced features in the Fusion Series G2 for automotive and large-part molding. An extended nozzle length range provides more flexibility while the compound nozzle can be used to avoid interferences with cavity cooling lines and position nozzles in very tight pockets. Fusion G2 is now available with valve pin open speed control and position monitoring that enables improved surface finishes at the gate of the part. Options for extra-extended gate seals are now also available on the entire Fusion G2 product line. Brand new additions to the Fusion G2 product line that will be on display will include high-performance water-cooled gate inserts plus some additional new gating methods designed specifically for certain resins.
NEW Mold-Masters Dura Plus Automotive Lens and Lighting Hot Runner
Mold-Masters NEW Dura Plus hot runner for lighting applications utilizes features in the Master-Series and Dura product range. The developments focus on part quality and flexibility for customers. The new smarter angled manifold designs make installations easier and reduce the cost on mold machining. New gating styles and new valve pins with superior flow profile allow for perfect gate quality and the new heater path at main manifolds offer less zones to control without jeopardizing the thermal balancing. The new valve pin position sensors fine tune the injection process and dual thermocouples on nozzles to avoid production fails and the proven Fusion G2 actuators that bring repeatability on gate closing, cooling water jackets.
DME Mold Technologies
Milacron has long been an essential resource to the plastics industry worldwide. The DME product brand proudly celebrates its 75th Anniversary. DME is a market-leading mold technologies provider and continues to provide the industry’s broadest range of products and solutions for mold designers, mold makers and processors.
DME TruCoolTM – A Revolutionary Conformal Cooling Solution
TruCool is the new DME line of products designed to help mold makers and molders with their mold cooling. DME’s Conformal Cooling solutions utilize a cutting-edge, direct metal laser melting 3D printing process to produce highly complex cavities, cores, and components with conformal cooling channels. The process achieves shapes, paths, and channel geometries impossible to obtain with conventional tooling. DME’s TruCool Conformal Cooling solution places cooling channels at the optimal distance from the mold surface, consistently following the geometric shape of any mold insert for any customer part, allowing the mold to maintain a targeted, consistent temperature that allows for complete thermal control, allowing for the total injection molding cycle time to be reduced by up to 60%. This technology also allows for conformal venting solutions for those hard to reach areas of trapped gases, when requested by the molder.
Milacron Direct Industrial Supplies
Whether looking for auxiliary equipment, shop supplies, machine parts, mold sprays or safety supplies, DME has everything required to keep your plant running smoothly. DME has thousands of products that will help improve operational performance and process. DME offers a wide range of auxiliary including conveyors, dryers, loaders and hoppers to clean room enclosures, resin bins and water chillers. A robust assortment of shop products, tools, and safety supplies is available to provide customers with the equipment necessary to operate at peak performance. To ensure that every molding machine station is well equipped, DME has a vast array of machine parts, cutters, trimmers and mold sprays.
