In what it claims is a first for a major trade show, hot runner manufacturer Mold-Masters (Booth N77020) is molding two-color poker chips and changing colors on the fly at the show. The line, anchored by a 110-ton e-max press from Engel (Booth S24000), is being used to demonstrate, among other technology, Mold-Masters’ new line of auxiliary injection units, the H-Multi and E-Multi.

You won’t have to wait at the press long to increase your grubstake: Cycle times are 22 seconds, and colors of the chips are being changed on the fly. Mold inserts on the tool hanker are from Prosin Molds, which brazed them to ensure efficient cooling. The hot runner features a new micro-sized valve gate called Femto-Lite VG from the booth owner, and the valve gates are powered by an E-Drive servo driven synchro-plate. [email protected]
