TUESDAY NPE 2018 : THE PLASTICS SHOW SHOW DAILY Your New Alternative to High-Pressure Injection Molding Let us tell you about the LUMINA MP800 Medium-Pressure Injection Molding Machine > Versatile > Efficient > Advanced Technology 45 Years Serving the Plastics Industry See us at NPE BOOTH W1823 Clean Plast Purge Compounds Launches Expanded Product Line By Lilli Manolis Sherman Plascs Technology "We have expanded our Clean Plast offering with the new product line we are highlighঞng at NPE2018," says Rochelle Lemieux, President of Clean Plast Purge Compounds, a regis- tered trademark of RGL Sales and Markeঞng Inc. (Booth W5052). Clean Plast Purge Compounds are the company's flagship product. "We have been supplying injecঞon molding, blow molding and extrusion processors for 22 years," says Lemieux. Available in a premixed and ready-to-use pellet form, these FDA compliant chemical purging compounds are specifically developed to clean screws, barrels, nozzles, heads/dies and hot runners; and to remove burned material, color hang-ups, deposits and black specks during color and/or material changes. The new expanded product line includes: • Clean Plast Mold Cleaner and Degreaser, which con- tains no chlorinated solvents and provides a conve- nient method for removal of silicones, grease, and oil and wax build-up on mold surfaces. • Clean Plast Go Green Mold Cleaner, which is an all-natural formulaঞon based on citrus and vegetable products. • Clean Plast Mold Rust Prevenঞve, which features an extra-dry spray package. It is said to deliver non-pene- traঞng mist into ejector pin holes, slides, cams and other moving parts. • Clean Plast Heavy-Duty Mold Release, which is an Rochelle Lemieux, president of Clean Plast Purge Compounds unveils expanded product porolio. almost-dry, paintable molded part release and lubri- cant for ejector pins. • Clean Plast Food Safe Mold Release, which contains an effecঞve non-silicone release in a non-chlorinated solvent carrier system. • Clean Plast Silicone Mold Release, which contains a non-paintable silicone oil in a non-chlorinated solvent carrier system. NPE2018 New Technology Focus Micromolding Is Big MHS Mold Hotrunner Systems is introducing a new version of its self-contained M3 micromolding system. By Mahew H. Naitove Plascs Technology The ongoing trend to miniaturizaঞon in medical, electronic and micro-mechanical devices is increasing the demand for micromolding. At least six machine builders are responding to that demand at NPE. Arburg (Booth W1325) is doing so with an LSR micromold- ing demonstraঞon. A dual-durometer membrane for valves used in medical and automoঞve applicaঞons is molded using Arburg's 0.1-oz micro-injecঞon unit with a 0.3-in. screw diam- eter to produce one shot of 0.0018 oz, followed by a second shot from a servo-electric injector from Kipe Molds. Boy Machines (Booth 2503) is showing its new Boy XXS micromolder, introduced at K 2016, with a 7-ton clamp and shot capacity up to 9.3 g. This all-electric, tabletop unit has Boy's standard canঞlevered, two-platen clamp (though with just two diagonally arranged ঞebars) and Procan Alpha con- troller. The system permits off-center gaঞng, adjustable verঞ- W8081). The new model M3-D08 is a compact, self-contained electro-pneumaঞc molding cell for molding direct-gated parts from 0.001 to 0.400 g with a gate diameter as small as 0.5 mm (0.0197 in.). Clamp force is 4 m.t. Cycle ঞmes are generally 4-6 sec. Precision valve gaঞng allows molding of two different parts with different weights at the same ঞme. Integrated auto- maঞon provides hands-off parts handling and takeout. Patent- ed Isokor technology accumulates the melt and temperature condiঞons it close to the gate, which is said to reduce melt residence ঞme and potenঞal degradaঞon, while also minimiz- ing variaঞons in shot volume due to melt compressibility. Nissei (Booth W923) is showing a 7.8-ton NPX7 servo-hy- draulic micromolder, and Plustech's flagship micromolding machine, the Sodick GL30A-LP (30 tons), is running in the booth of hot-runner supplier Technoject (Booth W3883). Sum- itomo (SHI) Demag (Booth W3045) is showing a micromolding demonstraঞon of a DNA-free, high-clarity sample collecঞon tube with a wall thickness of 0.250 mm. Wi•mann Ba•enfeld (Booth W3742) is showing its two- shot MicroPower Combimould 15-ton electric machine with two parallel injecঞon units and a rotary disk. It is producing a consumer electronic part from PC and electro-conducঞve PC. Inside the machine cabinet are a Wi•mann W8VS4 SCARA robot designed specially for this press, and a built-in camera system for quality inspecঞon of parts. cally by up to 25 mm. Integral sprue and parts pickers are mounted under the safety gate. A new generaঞon of its M3 micromolding system is being launched at NPE by MHS Mold Hotrunner Soluঞons (Booth 88 NPE.ORG A PRODUCT OF PLASTICS INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION
