Vertical hydraulic for TPEs

Accurate, tenths-of-a-gram shot control without the use of a shutoff nozzle is provided by proprietary injection control software in Rep Corp.?s (Bartlett, IL) new Model V18 hydraulic press, which it designed primarily for running advanced TPE compounds.

Its sophisticated control software and hydraulics circuitry can provide holding pressures as low as 72.5 psi, suiting it to high-precision overmolding work. The V18 is capable of providing shot sizes of up to 7.6 in3 at 24,667 psi. It has a compact 38-by-61-inch footprint, which fits well into production lines. It also has a 16.5-inch stroke, and 12-by-12-inch platens as standard; 18-by-12-inch platens also are available.?CK
