Bole's hybrid unit features center toggle design

Issue: June 2017

BL 500EK-PET Designed especially for preform production, this 500-ton hybrid injection molding machine features a unique center-toggle design. Compared with conventional molding machines, it has a larger space between tie bars.

What’s new? A custom machine, which features a unique integration with automation for part takeoff. To increase productivity, the preforms are removed from the machine while still warm, then cooled outside the machine in a separate cooling fixture. The unit is expected to ship next month.

Benefits Energy efficiency and fast cycle times. Because the center clamp generates more force directly on the mold, less tonnage is required to achieve flash-free parts.
