WEDNESDAY N PE 2 018 M AY 9 TH NPE2018 PRODUCTS ON DISPLAY Spritzgiessautomaten BOY Machines Inc. • Exton, PA • • BOY – Handling Modular & Flexible Ideal solution for part removal and part insertion Servo linear main axes with repeatability of +/- 0.02 mm Pneumatic swivel (C-axis) standard, optional rotational axis (B-axis) Integrated solution with the BOY injection molding machine Adaption of downstream equipment and turnkey solutions possible Precise & Intuitive Automation – BOY LR 5 • • • • • Join us at booth W 2503 Co-Display of Mold Materials Features Wear-Resistant Products SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH USA Inc. | Booth S15037 One of Finkl Steel's main focuses at NPE2018 is on innovaঞon. The patent-pending, pre-hardened mold steel Corebloc was engi- neered for injecঞon molding tools and for the core plate of injecঞon molds up to 40" (1,015 mm) in size. Finkl says that excellent ability to harden characterizes this steel in comparison to standard materials like 4140 and 1.2312. Corebloc's machinability and resistance to wear are outstanding. Corebloc is suitable for laser-hardening, chrome-plaঞng and nitriding. Finkl says that users save from expenses on core-side molds and tools. Finkl also presents the plasঞc mold steel MD-Xtra SH (Super Hard). Microalloying addiঞons ensure higher hardness levels than material that is typically available. With a hardness ranging to 43 HRC, the wear resistance is significantly increased. Polishability is guaranteed up to 1,200 grit. MD-Xtra SH is ideal for manufacturing sophis- ঞcated automoঞve components with ex- tremely smooth surfaces. Its remelted coun- terpart, MLQ-Xtra, combines these benefits with a guaranteed SPI A1 finish. Schmolz + Bickenbach highlights the moo of bringing out the shine in plasঞc mold manufacturing in its NPE2018 display of the extremely corrosion-resistant, hard- ened high-grade steel Formadur PH X Super- clean from DEW. With its excellent pol- ishability, Schmolz + Bickenbach says that Formadur PH X Superclean is an ideal solu- ঞon for manufacturing reflector and lens molds. Formadur 2083 Superclean from DEW also is resistant to corrosion. Resis- tance to wear makes this material ideal for PVC extrusion tools and smaller cross secঞon injecঞon molds. Schmolz + Bickenbach also features Corroplast FM from DEW at NPE2018. Corroplast FM is a material engi- neered for sophisঞcated plasঞc mold bases. This free-machining, pre-hardened stainless steel has outstanding machining characteris- ঞcs and dimensional stability. The tool steels of the Schmolz + Bickenbach Group are in stock at Schmolz + Bickenbach USA and Schmolz + Bickenbach Canada. | (800) 323-1233 In-Mold Labeling: High Performance at Lower Cost ARI | Booth W4182 At NPE2018, Absolute Robot Inc. (ARI) takes its first step into IML with a side-entry sys- tem from Well-Lih of China, running a four-cavity PP yogurt-cup mold. According to ARI, its IML systems perform in the same league as industry-leading compeঞtors, but at 20-30 percent lower price. ARI is offering both top-entry and side-entry IML systems suitable for overall cycle ঞmes down to 3 sec and with mold-open ঞmes as short as 1.8 Abrasion Resistant Alloys for Injecঞon Molding RTP Company | Booth S22091 RTP Co. is featuring new applicaঞons made with its engineered thermoplasঞc compounds. To sঞmulate design concepts, RTP engineers are showcasing 7-Steps: A Metal-to-Plasc Conversion Guide, a guideline for successful metal-to-plasঞc part conversion. RTP boasts experঞse in using filled thermoplasঞc compounds to replace metal in a range of applicaঞons. Also new is a selecঞon of thermoplasঞc alloys that demonstrate abrasion resistance comparable to UHMWPE but are designed specifically for injecঞon molding. RTP's Abrasion Resistant Alloys series is available in mulঞple resin and addiঞve combinaঞons to provide wear-and-fricঞon resistance, flame retardancy and conducঞvity. | (507) 454-6900 sec. ARI can also handle larger products like 5-gal buckets, kiy-lier pails or candy bowls. This IML demonstraঞon is meant to show that ARI can handle complete turnkey sys- tems with robot, EOAT, label magazine, height-adjustable frame, and opঞons like vision and stacking parts either boom-up or boom-down. | (508) 792-4305 67
