A Disruptive Solution to Reducing Clamp Tonnage

A Disruptive Solution to Reducing Clamp Tonnage

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.

Plastics Profiler ABS+PC Blends

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.
