AGS Technology has taken delivery, installed, and is running production on two new JSW injection molding machines.
Most of the time, the clamp tonnage required to keep the mold closed during plastic injection is the key factor that dictates press size. Traditionally processors have attacked clamp tonnage using higher flow materials, increasing wall thickness, shortening length of flow and specifying larger gate sizes. Now there is another bullet in the holster; iMFLUX constant low pressure molding.
ABS+PC are blends of the amorphous engineering thermoplastics, acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) and polycarbonate (PC). ABS+PC is similar in many ways to its component resins, but combines the mechanical and thermal properties of polycarbonate with the processability and economy of ABS.
Polyethylene is the largest volume thermoplastic used today. Polyethylene is available in a variety of grades that have a wide range of properties and are classified according to density.
Once again, AGS is featured alongside our partner iMFLUX in the August 2020 issue of Plastics Technology.
