Electrohydraulics in Parison control
Parison control is used in plastic blow-molding machines to achieve optimum and uniform wall thickness of continuously extruded profiles. This can be accomplished with zero-lapped...
Unconventional HPUs make machines energy misers
This HPU breaks from convention by using a fixed-displacement pump and variable-speed electric drive to match pump output to load demand. The control box at right houses electronic...
To boost life and reliability, don't skimp on seals
Because injection molded plastics involve high pressures and temperatures, seals must be able to withstand these adverse conditions. Seals are among the least expensive components...
Is air or water getting into your hydraulic fluid?
The hydraulic oil level in our molding machine reservoir gradually rises after we start the unit up. This causes oil to eventually blow out the breather cap when the clamp and...
