Two-Shot Molding: Any Machine, Any Time with Shibaura Machine
ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, August 6, 2021 - Two-shot molding is one of the most efficient processes for manufacturers creating products using plastics. By allowing operators to create multi-material or multi-colored parts without adding extra assembly steps it allows for increased versatility while being simpler and more cost effective in comparison to other processes.
Many manufacturers find themselves wanting to utilize two-shot molding, but without the space or capital to invest in another injection molding machine with this capability. Shibaura Machine offers customers the ability to transform a standard Shibaura Machine into a two-shot system with the E-Multi 2 Shot System. The E-Multi 2 Shot System offers a cost-effective way for Shibaura Machine customers to gain the benefits of two-shot molding while also keeping the ability to switch back to their standard machine to run their conventional molded products when needed.
Two-Shot Molding When You Need It
The options available on the E-Multi 2 Shot System make it easy to optimize production. With many units running in the field for years with this system, it has been proven successful on numerous high performance applications.
Additional key features include:
- All electric servo driven for high performance and precise control
- Flexible configuration options for any application and can be moved from machine to machine (interface via Euromap67 / Euromap12)
- E-Multi System is multifunctional and can also include:
- TempMaster HR Controls (up to 36 zones and more on request)
- Valve gates (2 standard, up to 12)
- Other servo motions (i.e. For Index plates, E-Drive, and Rotary Tables)
Support You Can Count On
