Inductive tool heating rapidly produces high gloss, defect-free surface finish


Inductive injection tool heating technology expert Roctool is featuring its technology for rapid molding of composites and other plastic components at multiple booths during NPE, including the company's own (S15033) and those of injection machine builders KraussMaffei (W903) and Engel (W1303). The parts produced at these booths feature high gloss and no indications of weld lines or sink marks.

At the KraussMaffei booth, small appliance parts are being molded on a KM180-750AX press outfitted with a MuCell microcellular foam injection molding capability. The mold was supplied by Proper Tooling. Further, an Engel 2550/550 machine is being used to produce an automotive part in collaboration with +GF+ (Georg Fischer) and Bayer MaterialScience at the Engel stand.
