Turning heads with all-electric stack-turning technology
Quicker cycle times with less space required
The cavity-assigned assembly of the individual parts guarantees an optimum degree of assembly precision and substantially enhances the quality of the assembly part, the toolmaker said. The cap-sealing system can also be made with greater economic efficiency. Owing to the cube engineering, the cycle time is at least 30% shorter than in injection processes using conventional moulds. The unit also requires a much smaller installation space as only one injection moulding machine and no separate automatic assembly unit is needed, the company reported.
Both the upper and the lower parts are made of polypropylene (PP). The cycle time including assembly of the 2 x 8 parts is said to be only 7.5 sec.
