At the IRC 2015, rubber and plastics injection moulding machine manufacturer, LWB-Steinl, will present new vertical machines, both with C-frame- and four-tiebar clamping systems.
In addition, the vertical version of its LWB-micro machine for processing TPE will debut, along with a practical demonstration of the performance of the company’s LWB-cure time reduction technology.
LWB-Steinl says the two new vertical machines have increased mould mounting space following the trend of increasingly complex injection and compression moulds. The redesign of the machines sees them include heating platens with increased dimensions for mounting. At the IRC, the new machine series will be represented by two machines with 500 and 550 kN clamping force, usually used for corner moulding applications.
The company’s EFE–injection moulding system, that boasts a saving of up to 50 percent in cure time of high-volume moulded rubber parts will also be demonstrated to visitors at the show. The EFE-injection system affects the conversion of shear energy into additional heat energy in the plasticised rubber compound. This energy is brought into the material immediately prior to injection to the mould cavity and can be widely adjusted, therefore speeding up the start and the process of vulcanisation.
Finally, after it presented its horizontal MicroClass injection-moulding machine at the IRC 2012 and K 2013, LWB-Steinl says it will present the vertical version of this machine system at DKT 2015.
