Portable Spray System Applies Mold Release Agents

pn2.jpgBurger Engineering's MoldTender is designed to apply either bulk or aerosol mold release agents to injection molds. Burger's Russ Longley says the MoldTender will allow a press to run unattended in a fully automatic mode.

Key components of the system are a bulk reservoir (3 gal or optional 5 gal) or aerosol canister (40 lb), PLC, pressure regulators, pneumatic or solenoid-operated valves and spray nozzles. The system is mounted on a hand truck that can be easily moved around.

The PLC can be set to control bulk or aerosol spray timing, duration and count. An F1 function key allows for manual control for the first cycle or for special requirements.

An optional stack light signalsnormal spray (green), mold release'lo-refill', service required (amber) or no spray and a possibly stuck molded part (red).

Longley adds that the MoldTender uses "substantially less mold release than application with hand-held aerosol cans" and that it pays for itself in 30 to 90 days. Price is not yet available. Contact Burger for specifics via our Key Contact Directory, p 40.
