Saving space and energy

The possibility to obtain machines, automation and auxiliaries all from a single source from WITTMANN is also becoming more and more important for MESTO. Johannes Stuber, Production Manager at MESTO, particularly appreciates the good cooperation right from the concept planning stage. Не comments: “What gives WITTMANN BATTENFELD a competitive edge is above all its excellent service. In combination with its energy efficient, compact, complete solutions, this is a decisive factor for us.”

New AXIOM TG single-stage pet hot runner system

For those looking to modernize their single stage PET bottle production. Mold-Masters® has created the AXIOM TG (Thermal Gate) hot runner system, which is designed to meet the needs of single-stage PET molders. This hot runner system brings the latest processing technology to enhance molded part quality, increase productivity and lower cost per part. AXIOM TG is an economical direct replacement for many existing outdated hot runner systems and is compatible with all leading ISBM machines and molds.

Innovation in focus – Highlights of sample plate 2.0

Highlights of the sample plate 2.0 are the hologram and the lowfriction structure at the corners. The advantage of silicone is that fingerprints do not adhere to the surface, or at least only to a very limited degree. Holograms remain a fascinating feature, despite any contact with human skin. The corners of the sample plate 2.0 are particularly interesting, as their surface is imbued with properties that reduce friction. Use of special surface textures enhances the gliding properties of silicone.

The common goal: more sustainability

While ENGEL duo injection moulding machines have been available with clamping forces of up to 5500 tonnes as standard machines for a long time, ENGEL has now extended the series upwards for new applications in the mobility sector and other industries. Besides parts with a particularly large surface area and volume, these new mega machines with their extremely large mould mounting spaces enable even more extensive process integration – for example in the glazing sector.
