Standard Pneumatic Features Maximize Your Injection Molding Machine Investment
ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, May 19, 2021 - Have you ever gone shopping for a car? The answer for most of us is probably yes. You know you’re making an investment in a vehicle that you will likely have for years to come and want it to be just so. While many features come standard, there are usually several that don’t, but you know you’d utilize and get value out of them. By the end of the shopping experience you’ve likely either tacked on these features which means additional costs or you have to figure out how to add them on aftermarket once budget allows.
Investing in an injection molding machine oftentimes is a similar experience. You find a machine, but it doesn’t have all the features you require to obtain maximum value for your investment and you end up adding on additional items for additional dollars. Shibaura Machine believes it doesn’t have to be this way. Our ECSXIII series injection molding machines come standard with a variety of pneumatic features that allow customers to maximize their initial investment.
Changing the Standard
Shibaura Machine remains committed to help in the transformation of the manufacturing industry. The ECSXIII series was developed with a suite of pneumatic features that come standard in order to help our customers maximize the machine's value and improve productivity by making it easier to run a variety of molds.
- Dual Air Blow Circuit – Parts can be difficult to eject from a mold based on their size or shape. The dual air blow circuit allows the user to set-up two stages of air blow to assist with ejection of parts from the mold. It can be synchronized with the mechanical ejectors to help ensure proper ejection of the parts.
- Single Zone Pneumatic Core Pull – In some cases a mold may require a pneumatic core pull circuit to help with certain applications. This feature affords our customer the ability to run a wider variety of molds.
- Single Zone Pneumatic Valve Gate – Certain molds are designed using valve gates to accurately control the flow of material, eliminate material drool and gate string, improve physical properties with lower molded-in stress, and cycle time reduction.
To maximize your investment Shibaura Machine believes it is important to have access to a comprehensive suite of pneumatic features. These standard features are complimented by Shibaura Machine's years of injection molding expertise, creating a winning combination to boost productivity and improve cost-effectiveness.
