Magnetic mold clamping for plastics processing
M-TECS magnetic clamping systems provide evident benefits: Injection
molds, even if not standardized, can be easily and swiftly changed
without need for retooling. As a result of a clamping force which
is evenly distributed all over the clamping surface, tool wear is
considerably reduced which means lower tool maintenance costs. With
no moving parts, the system itself is basically maintenance-free.
It is suitable for fitting onto existing injection molding machines
or incorporating into new machines.
M-TECS 130 being stable up to 130° C (266°F) largely covers
the whole temperature range that may occur in the thermoplastics
processing industry. The system can also be upgraded for higher temperatures as a special (contact Hilma engineering).The magnetic poles have been designed to build
up an actual clamping force of 18 kg/cm² (256 psi). Highest
quality materials are used for the long pole design, which is based
on a double-magnet technique. Its outstanding power concentration
makes the system much stronger than any comparable magnetic plates.
