Sumitomo (SHI) Demag to Showcase Liquid Injection Molding Technology at Silicone Expo Tradeshow
[Detroit] — Sumitomo (SHI) Demag, a pioneering force in the world of injection molding machinery, is thrilled to announce its participation in the esteemed Silicone Expo Tradeshow. The event promises to be a game-changer as Sumitomo (SHI) Demag unveils its revolutionary liquid injection SE-EV-A machine, incorporating cutting-edge features designed to redefine precision and performance in injection molding.
The SE-EV-A machine stands as a testament to Sumitomo (SHI) Demag’s unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of what is possible in injection molding. This state-of-the-art machine comes equipped with a suite of innovative features that promise to transform the manufacturing landscape. The inclusion of OPC UA connectivity facilitates seamless integration with other manufacturing systems, streamlining operations and enhancing overall efficiency. Moreover, the machine boasts built-in dosing unit control and mold temperature control, offering unparalleled command over the injection molding process.
A standout feature of the SE-EV-A machine is its custom vacuum sequencing control, a ground breaking addition that ensures precise filling while preventing leaks. The pneumatic and water-cooled nozzle takes precision to new heights, allowing for meticulous viscosity control during the injection process.
What sets this machine apart is Sumitomo (SHI) Demag’s pioneering SK-II technology, featuring a locking screw tip design that eradicates backflow during screw pullback. This innovation significantly enhances shot density control, automatically adjusting pre-set pressure and forward screw speed to compensate for changes in material properties. The result is a remarkable achievement in injection fill precision and peak pressure stability, delivering unmatched repeatability from shot to shot.
Sumitomo (SHI) Demag’s commitment to excellence extends beyond its own innovations. The company has partnered with industry leaders to create a complete and exceptional manufacturing experience at the Silicone Expo Tradeshow:
- Nexus will be providing their x20 Servomix dosing unit for precise mixing.
- M.R. Mold & Engineering, an educational leader in the realm of liquid silicone rubber (LSR), will be providing the molding tool for this part.
- Shin-Etsu Silicones of America will be showcasing their KEG 2003H-50 A/B quick-curing material.
- Yushin America will be contributing FRA: High-End Take-out Robots designed for high-speed movement, featuring “Active Vibration Control.”
- Burger and Brown Engineering has supplied us with their SmartFlow aluminum water manifolds to enhance cooling efficiency.
- Krikolor’s Kri-Paste pigments will be used to add vibrant colors to the molded products.
- Frigel will be keeping the exhibit with their Turbogel High-performance temperature control units
