Millutensil Tilting table reduces production time when using bi-component moulds

Editor: Briggette Jaya

Millutensil's specially designed tilting table allows the mould to be positioned both at 0° and 180°.

This is said to facilitate operations when using bi-component or bi-colour moulds, which are increasingly being used for automotive applications such as headlight assemblies and other lighting equipment.

During mould production, the first material is injected into the die; the die is then opened and rotated by 180° and subsequently re-closed so that a second material is injected. This could be a different colour or type of material depending on the component being manufactured. By producing complex components in this way, the end-product can be realised on one press without the need for any further tool changes. However, when setting a mould tool on a traditional spotting press, the production process would have to start in the 0° position followed by a tool change over-rotated for the second; calling for removal of the tool, rotating 180° manually, and repositioning back to the traditional spotting press. According to Millutensil, this entails a considerable amount of time and potential risks. The rotating operation with all-around monitoring of the positions deploys the same standard press,so no time is wasted on redundant procedures, ensuring maximum flexibility, the company says.
