MONDAY N PE 2 018 IMS Co. Celebrates Serving Molding Industry Since 1949 The new Hoist Ring Rack from IMS Co. makes transporঞng essenঞal equipment like hoist rings, eye bolts, mold clamps and other items easier and more efficient. By Cynthia Kustush MoldMaking Technology During NPE2018, IMS Co. is reminding cus- tomers that it is the oldest supply company and pioneer distributor of auxiliary equip- ment and accessories for injecঞon molders. With the tagline "Helping Molders Since 1949!" the company wants customers to know that it has never wavered from its origi- nal mission. "Choosing IMS Company to do business with is like choosing a molding part- ner that you can rely on; a partner that will be there for you when you need us most," Steve Marঞni, IMS markeঞng communicaঞons manager, says. Located in Booth W115, IMS is showcas- ing its complete line of mold release and mold care products, high-quality injecঞon molding machine components and its own brand of material loaders, Marঞni says. Brand new and on display is IMS's Hoist Ring Rack (pictured). Also brand new are two low-toxicity mold cleaners. LT-65 saঞsfies California's Prop-65 declaraঞon, and C-Foam is a citrus-based, drip-resistant, biodegrad- able foaming cleaner. IMS has increased its booth size this year to accommodate the growing number of products it is displaying and encourages cus- tomers to take advantage of demonstraঞons of its spiral curve hopper, new model of hori- zontal-to-incline conveyor, material loaders, and corner drum tumbler, to name a few. Marঞni says NPE2018 aendees will be sold on IMS's plasঞc-cuমng gate cuers and trimmers when they use and test them in the booth. "We have added 12 new Super Gate Cuer styles to our already extensive line," he says. New styles include mulঞple new head angles, specialized head shapes, ergo- nomic le[-hand and right-hand grips and addiঞonal handle lengths. All 44 styles in this line feature handles with IMS's patented "Ease-of-Squeeze" bend, which the company says minimizes operator faঞgue. Try them on the newly upgraded, heavy-duty IMS Res-Q Staঞon Work Table. Throughout the week, IMS is giving out a few product samples like grease, gauges and hand-tools, as well as other fun items like shirts, hats, pens, screwdrivers, magnets and more. As always, IMS also has plenty of its signature yellow, logo "stress-ball" ducks on hand.
