Husky Injection Molding Systems Refining proven HPP platform for more reliability and quality
Canada-based Husky Injection Molding Systems recently announced the launch of its next-generation Hypet HPP5e system.
The leading industrial technology provider to the plastics processing community says the Hypet HPP5e system has been built further and better on its industry-leading technology of the HPP platform. Husky Injection Molding Systems notes that it has taken the solution to the next level, implementing several significant technology improvements to come up with a smarter, more intuitive and more productive system. HPP5e delivers better energy savings, system reliability, preform quality and user-friendliness.
System intelligence is the key to the HPP5e’s ability to intuitively reduce energy consumption, saving on operating costs. The platform is an intelligent, adaptive technology that uses feedback from pressure and actuator sensors to determine the optimum pressure required to mould every application. This smart system monitors and automatically adjusts for optimal energy consumption without impacting system capability, cycle time or part quality.
HPP5e has several modifications to make it more robust and reliable. New conveyor technology reduces preform bounce when parts are ejected from the Coolpik unit to the exiting conveyor. This bounce reduction results in improved part quality, reduced scrap, more streamlined operation and decreased cycle interruptions. Enhanced mould alignment software supports faster system set-up and troubleshooting. Other advancements include new robot linear bearings to maximise longevity, upgraded Altanium Inside ICC cards for more integrated, accurate temperature control and a new nozzle shut-off cylinder to promote component longevity.
Furthermore, HPP5e now adopts new intelligent features and real-time control enhancements to simplify its operation while optimising the moulding process. Operators of all skill levels are able to achieve maximum productivity and part consistency, Husky adds. HMI screen upgrades, software updates and improved EtherCAT diagnostics enable easier navigation of the system, troubleshoot issues faster and is more convenient to set-up.
