show preview | Ancillaries Zahoransky lightens the cube


Hall 2/A02 Automated plastics manufac- turing specialist Zahoranksy will show its TIM Cube (shown in the picture) and new TIM Light stack mould systems, the latter designed to provide the benefits of Cube mould production without requiring extended machine daylight. The TIM Light system uses a modular two-platen mould in place of the Cube in the standard TIM system. This keeps the production system short so a machine with


extended tiebars is not required. Moulding assembly is performed independently


outside of the mould on external moveable platens in the TIM Light system, which


the company says results in only a moderate extension of the total production cycle. The company will also show


its Z.Zyklon automated production system for Luer needle tips for disposable syringes. The system uses an 8-cavity mould with a vertical Arburg moulding machine and integrates needle feed, moulding and inspection. The system can produce up to 55m finished parts/year, according to Zahoransky. ❙ www.zahoransky-group.com


RocTool runs thin wall and IMD


Hall 15/C41 French mould technology specialist RocTool will be demonstrating production of a 0.8mm thick electronic tablet cover with a top quality surface using its patented mould


temperature regulation technology on its stand at the fair.


The company will also show a number of parts produced using its technology in combination with the D-IMD


digital in-mould decoration system developed by US-based Zomazz. Said to be suitable for


production of deep draw parts, the D-IMD system combines the surface quality and durability expected from IMD with the benefits of fully-cus- tomisable digital printing. RocTool’s mould technology will also be in operation on the Engel stand, where the machinery maker will be demonstrating production of overmoulded carbon fibre composite parts at a rate of 400 per day. ❙ www.roctool.com


Pro-Tec shows new


dosers Hall 9/D60 Pro-Tec Polymer Process- ing launches its Somos BB500 batch dosing unit at the show, which can mix and dose blends of up to four components and is designed for direct mounting on the injection machine feed hopper. Capable of throughputs


of up to 500 kg/h, the device achieves a precision of ± 1% up to ± 0.5% of the dosage weight. ❙ www.sp-protec.com


Improved mould monitoring devices


Hall 1/E36 AST Technology will show the latest version of parent company Progressive Compo- nents’ CVe mould monitor. The new version incorpo-

cycle count and cycle times remotely and determine if maintenance is due or overdue. The system can also


generate activity reports on


individual or groups of tools, providing up-to-the-minute inventory data to feed into the supply chain, according to the company. ❙ www.ast-tech.de
