Inmold's Answer to Everything

Inmold's Answer to Everything Molders' new answer to saving time and money often revolves around "inmold technology," the all-encompassing term for inmold painting, labeling, cutting, coating, and other molding activities. While the auto industry is popularizing the technology, Injection Molding Magazine dissects how it can be used most effectively — with less, but more skilled labor for inmold assembly, or through a two-shot part to avoid distortion with multimaterials. And, to get an idea of successful inmold technology use, look at the award-winning inmold packaging designs.

Accurate Pocket-Sized Ultrasonic Thickness Gages
Olympus — NDT

Accurate Pocket-Sized Ultrasonic Thickness Gages Olympus NDT Model 35 gages provide easy thickness measurements in applications where the opposite surface is difficult to reach. They measure materials ranging in thickness from 0.003 in. (0.08 mm) in plastic to several inches in steel. Glass, rubber, and composites can also be measured. Measurements are instant, reliable, and repeatable. Please see www.olympusNDT.com for details.

TPEs for Medical Needs

TPEs for Medical Needs A portfolio of thermoplastic elastomers and engineered thermoplastic compounds holds promise for medical device manufacturers seeking materials for thin walls. PolyOne's Trilliant™ HC polymers list soft-touch overmolding applications and specialty lead-free end uses among its targets. And the material's regulatory compliance round out its healthcare suitability.

Strengthening POM is a Stretch

Strengthening POM is a Stretch Polyoxymethylene (POM) has the unfortunate quality of brittleness despite solid chemical resistance, light weight, and hardness. Manufacturers may rejoice over Science Daily's report that the material may be stretched to 10 times its former capability. "Electrospinning" the POM after dissolving it first in an HFIP solution has created stretchable nanofibers for electronic, medical, and industrial uses.

Holograms Destroy Copies

Holograms Destroy Copies A 'cast fingerprint' may hold the potential both as an anti-counterfeit marker and as a plastics detailer, replacing photochemical etching and machining. Holograms are inserted into nanoscale-level features of the injection molds via an explosive process. The detonation causes the holographic inserts to be destroyed while still preserving a unique identifier.

Botox for Injection Molds

Botox for Injection Molds Touted for its ability to improve surface appearance, heat/cool molding technology lists low molded-in stress, less cracking or fewer weld lines, and improved gloss among its benefits. The system combines hot tools to inject material and cold water to cool the mold — both of which may be done on conventional molding systems with PC or PC blend resins.

Low Volume Production
Rapid Processing Solutions, Inc.

Low Volume Production RTV Tooling is a cost-effective way to achieve low volume plastic production. This method especially fits the medical and aerospace industries for production products. It can also be used to fill the gap between design and high volume runs. Rapid PSI is ISO9001 and AS9100 certified, ensuring quality products.

Polyethylene/Polypropylene Plastic Adhesives
Rudolph Bros. & Co.

Polyethylene/Polypropylene Plastic Adhesives BETAMATE LESA was named one of the top 100 most technologically significant new products and processes of the year. A recent winner of industry recognition from the Society of Plastics Engineers, PACE Awards and R&D 100, BETAMATE LESA can be used to replace or supplement welds and mechanical fasteners in a wide variety of structural applications.

Servo-Hydraulics vs All-Electronics

Servo-Hydraulics vs All-Electronics To compete with Japanese all-electric machines, Taiwanese injection molding machine makers have carved a niche with servo-driven hydraulic pumps. Some vendors have quoted 40 msec response time, 40% energy savings, and 70% of sales from servo-hydraulic machines, compared to variable pump-operated injection molders.

Hybrid Molding Adds Length

Hybrid Molding Adds Length One year ago, Engel introduced "exjection" molding with a 55 ton all-electric machine. Now, Arburg has applied the injection-extrusion molding combo to a 55 ton vertical machine. The process already creates long profiles, but the vertical machine enables horizontal mold mounting, elongating parts further and easing part removal.

Find Vibration, Achieve Smoothness

Find Vibration, Achieve Smoothness To offset surface finish problems, vibration data monitoring allows users to set parameters that, when exceeded, cause the machine to shut down. Other software can tune machine dynamics according to speed, accuracy, or surface finish priorities. Until the software becomes the brain behind machining, however, users must still know the necessary parameters and priorities.

Tailor-Made Analysis

Tailor-Made Analysis Molders have their pick of finite element analysis software to use in planning for stress, impact, and thermal dynamics of a design. Here's another — Abaqus 6.8. Dassault Systemes reports on the software's "anisotropic hyperelastic material model" for medical device manufacturing; composite analysis predicts cracks and failure points for aerospace; and noise and vibration analysis benefits for the auto industry.

Outsourcing to the U.S.?

Outsourcing to the U.S.? For years, U.S.-based companies have shipped manufacturing duties overseas, while overseas companies have avoided high costs of U.S. manufacturing. Now, the silver lining of its down economy has made the U.S. an emerging hot bed for low-cost manufacturing, which benefits companies invested in customization, U.S. intellectual property, and U.S. distribution.

Form Meets Function

Form Meets Function Although New York's Museum of Modern Art has shut its doors on the "Design and the Elastic Mind" exhibit, it's not too late to grasp the concept virtually. PingMag discusses the crossroads of design and science with museum curator Paola Antonelli. The stress on elasticity stems not so much from design materials, but from designers' need for an "elastic" mind in keeping up with technology. Read more about the museum's intentions or if you missed the exhibit, view the online gallery.
