NPE2018 PRODUCTS ON DISPLAY FRIDAY N PE 2 018 M AY 11TH New Self-Contained Micromolding System MHS Mold Hotrunner Soluঞons Inc. | Booth W8081 A new generaঞon of its M3 micromolding system is being launched at NPE2018 by MHS Mold Hot- runner Soluঞons. The new model M3-D08 is a compact, self-contained electro- pneumaঞc molding cell for mold- ing direct-gated parts from 0.001 to 0.400 g with a gate diam. 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 automaঞon pro- vides hands-off parts handling and takeout. Patented Isokor technol- ogy accumulates the melt and temperature condiঞons close to the gate, which is said to reduce melt residence ঞme and potenঞal degradaঞon, while also minimizing variaঞons in shot volume due to melt compressibility. (905) 873-1954 Hot-Runner Products Offer Versaঞlity and Ease Operaঞons INCOE Corp. | Booth S19023, W4463 INCOE Corp. is in Booths W4463 and S19023 at NPE2018. It has its new slim DF 5 nozzle with SBH heaঞng (Slim Base Heater) on display at the show. The outer diameter of the nozzle is reduced by almost 25 percent, therefore enabling the large 5-mm flow di- ameter nozzles to be supplied as close as 18 mm apart or even closer at 16 mm apart with modificaঞon to the nozzle shank. The result of this slimming soluঞon is ঞghter pitch spac- ing, closer proximity of water cooling circuits and reduced radiant heat to the mold. All of these benefits reduce cycle ঞmes and en- hance mold support. INCOE has upgraded the GSCmini, a com- pact, lightweight, ঞmer based, pneumaঞcally valve-gate actuated sequencing controller. INCOE introduces the GSC2mini at the show, which can now provide valve-gate actuaঞon for either pneumaঞc or hydraulic cylinders. This gate sequence controller is ideal for valve-gated applicaঞons that do not require sensors or linear transducer control. New to its temperature controller line is the I-Series Pro. The new I-Series Pro is an integrated microprocessor-based tempera- ture controller with 12 to 144 zones (or two zones per card). The advanced PID control logic provides repeatable operaঞon and tem- perature control accuracy. Enhanced features include hot runner system wiring tesঞng ca- pabiliঞes and various viewing displays that enable ease of operaঞon. | (248) 616-0220 LIVE ON DEMONSTRATION: THERMORUNNER KTR 6.1 SPEED NPE 2018 7 – 11 May , Orlando, FL USA West Hall B, W 2727 Thermoforming solutions for plastics processing Brueckner Group USA 200 International Drive, Suite 105 Portsmouth, NH 03801 USA T +1 603 766-6350 DRIVING YOUR PERFORMANCE New Welding Technology From Rinco Ultrasonics Rinco Ultrasonics | Booth W5373 Rinco Ultrasonics USA is introducing its new Electrical Moঞon ultrasonic welding machine at NPE2018 (Booth W5373). The new ma- chine, available in 20- and 35-kHz frequen- cies, represents a move away from tradiঞonal pneumaঞc-type press systems to electrically driven machines. The Electrical Moঞon welding system en- ables users to finely regulate the weld, using precise posiঞoning of the horn, along with the applied welding force to the welding rate. This means considerably beer results in welding, punching, cuমng and sealing of molded thermoplasঞc parts, nonwovens and syntheঞc texঞles, the company says. Another key feature of the Electrical Moঞon welding system is a high-performance, industry-type PC that can be easily operated via a 12-in. adjustable touchscreen, with the welding process triggered through an ergonomically designed two-hand operaঞon. The Electrical Moঞon Series is a next-gen- eraঞon product based on the company's Dy- namic 3000 ultrasonic welding machine (also with a working frequency of 20 kHz and 35 kHz), which was designed for technically de- manding welding operaঞons for medium- to large-sized thermoplasঞc parts. The unit pro- vides eight different welding modes from ঞme, energy, and collapse distance to abso- lute distance; energy and ঞme; energy or ঞme; contact cut off and melঞng rate. For all welding modes, the operator can adjust the ultrasonic trigger for force, distance and ঞme. Rinco is also launching its new AGM Pro ultrasonic generator designed to be built into automaঞon lines and special-purpose weld- ing machines. The digital, Industry 4.0-capa- ble device is an upgraded version of Rinco's current AGM ultrasonic generator and is re- portedly well suited to semi-automated and automated applicaঞons in the automoঞve and pack- aging industries. This completely redeveloped unit is even more compact and almost 50% lighter. (203) 744-4500 69
