Introduces Cure-Trac [R]

As you've come to expect, Rep Corporation again stands "one step ahead" of its competition by adding the intelligence of its software to the performance of its machines. After years of concentrating on the development of automated process control systems for machine and mold, Rep Corporation continues this approach for the compound and cure time with the revolutionary Cure-Trac [R] software, and for overall production management with Rep-Net [R].

There has been little success in optimizing control over cure time in the past. The curing process is extremely complex, involving many factors and many variations. This complexity has made real industrial control of the curing process virtually unobtainable. Until now.

Cure-Trac [R], developed by the Rep Research and Development Division and introduced by Rep in 1989, is software specifically designed to achieve this control of curing time.

Based entirely on scientific calculations, Cure-Trac [R] comprises two modules--a scientific software for use on a micro-computer and industrial software for use on Rep injection machines--and only Rep injection machines equipped with Intelinject [R] microprocessor-based controls.

Cure-Trac [R] software checks actual injection conditions and variances against pre-set conditions entered into the computer--conditions such as compound characteristics, characteristics of the mold and the piece to be molded, and those of the injection process itself.

Based on information from Rep's Intelinject [R] system, Cure-Trac [R] first calculates a theoretical curing time. Upon the completion of several cycles on the Rep press, however, actual injection conditions and their variances are determined--variances which must be factored into an adjusted cure time calculation. To do this, a molder enters the revised production data into the micro-computer, and Cure-Trac [R] will make immediate adjustments in the cure time data. Once these corrections are loaded into the injection control system, Cure-Trac [R] automatically adjusts the cure time, providing optimum productivity and quality for each and every cycle and compound.

While the process in which Cure-Trac [R] is utilized is extremely complicated, the software itself is easy to use. In fact, Rep will field-install Cure-Trac [R] and provide onsite training for your production and operator personnel.

In order to achieve automated process control in production management, production managers must have a centralized control center for their line of injection molding machines. Rep-Net [R] is the only system now available for centralized real-time monitoring of production lines. Connecting first to a central computer, the Rep-Net [R] network then connects up to 20 Rep machines with closed loop control specially equipped with Intelinject [R] for the transmission, storage and processing of data.

While Intelinject [R] controls on the Rep presses compensate for variables in the cycle, only Rep-Net [R] tracks those variables and offers SPC data on every press cycle run. In addition, Rep-Net [R] has an on-line alarm system which not only stops the press when parts are being made out of spec, but also identifies the problem right on the control operator's screen. All of this means the production of consistent quality parts, documentation to prove statistical process control and the optimum productivity at your facilities. Simply stated, it means improved profitability for your molded MRG operation.

Both Cure-Trac [R] and Rep-Net [R] will be featured at Rubber Expo '89, with large video monitors displaying the computer screens while both systems are in use. See for yourself how user-friendly Rep software is!

The dawn of computerization for the MRG molder

The latest development from the world's leading supplier of rubber injection molding presses isn't a machine at all.

What it is, is a whole new chapter in the American rubber industry. Written for you by REP.

With the evolution of REP-NET, a computer command center capable of monitoring and documenting the production of REP presses, your attainment of SPC and consistent piece part quality just became a reality.

As molders of mechanical rubber goods, you know well the demands made upon you by your auto, appliance and other major customers. In a phrase, "Get SPC procedures, CIM techniques and zero failure rates at the top of your priority list, or you get off our bid list."

With the REP-NET monitoring your REP presses, all your Intelinject [R] microprocessor-based controls become linked on a data highway. Therefore, all of the parameters run during all of the cycles on all of your presses can be tracked, recorded and evaluated. That's UPC [TM]...Ultimate Process Control...ONLY from REP.

REP-NET. For the parts, the process control and the documentation you need to succeed, it's a brand new day in the rubber business. 8N470 Tameling Court Bartlett, IL 60103-8146 (312) 697-7210 FAX: (312) 697-6829 Mr. Jim Jennett Mr. Tim Graham Mr. Jack Corbett

Quality and Service Still Our Two Most Important Products

In the early 70s, H.I.E. was the first to offer a screw/ram injection unit to update existing equipment, allowing utilization of existing assets and increasing productivity. In many cases, compression and transfer tooling is converted. This not only allows larger companies to look at more parts for injection molding, but the smaller and short-run manufacturers are able to consider injection molding.

As more and more custom molders saw the advantages of injection molding for short to medium runs, the "Injectamatic Jr." was developed. This small, self-contained press allowed short runs in existing tooling, and enabled two or three production runs in the same day.

We also offer 250-ton through 2,000-ton complete injection presses with up to 50-pound shot sizes standard. These larger presses are offered with exiting platens or shuttle systems. They incorporate jack cylinders and prefill systems to open and close the full stroke rams.

All equipment is offered with programmable controllers or standard wiring. Some units are offered with process controllers. In addition, H.I.E. will design and build special injection equipment for your needs.

For All Your Process Equipment Needs

50 years in the process business

Over 20,000 new & used items in stock!

Aaron Equipment Company is one of the fastest growing used and new equipment dealers serving the chemical, pharmaceutical, food, and plastics industries in the country. The company was established in 1939 by two brothers--Samuel and Aaron Cohen. Their sons, Jerrold V. Cohen, President and Leslie Cohen, Vice President, have been operating the company for close to 20 years now. During the past four years, the third generation of Cohens has arrived.

Jerry's son, Alan Cohen, concentrates his efforts on the purchasing and sales of centrifuges and his other son, Bennett, specializes in plastics. Les' son, Michael Cohen, is a sales representative.

The Aaron approach to the rubber chemical, food, and plastic industries is innovative. Les Cohen states proudly, "We are full-service organization. We do everything possible for the customer. We focus our efforts on short delivery time, fair price, and the ability to service what we sell."

The increase in Aaron's work force and facilities was a result of aggressively increasing their inventory. "Currently, we have over 20,000 items in inventory," says Les Cohen, "and even though we are known for our chemical, food, and plastic equipment, we have thousands of pieces for the rubber, pharmaceutical, mining, paper and construction industries. Our used and rebuilt pieces sell at 50% to 80% below the price of new equipment and in most cases can be seen under power in one of our warehouses just minutes from Chicago's O'Hare Airport."

In recent years Aaron Equipment has expanded their business into new process equipment by establishing a separate company, Aaron Process Equipment Co., Inc. In particular, the new firm offers a new double arm sigma blade mixer/extruder in three different styles ranging from 300 gallons to 600 gallons. In addition, Aaron has 4 cu. Ft. to 500 cu. ft. double spiral sanitary ribbon blenders in stock.

Continues Les: "People in our industry don't think of Aaron having new equipment, but in many cases we do. Our new company manufactures the mixer/extruder and blenders."

"What we want to impress upon our customers is that we are a diversified, full service organization. We have the expertise on our staff to meet any of our customers' needs," states Les Cohen. "All our customers are important to us--we treat them all the same whether they are buying a $500.00 screw conveyor or a $350,000.00 oxygen plant." This was apparent this past winter when a customer in Michigan phoned Alan Cohen on a Saturday morning. It seems that this adhesive manufacturer had a bearing out on a mixer/extruder that they had purchased from Aaron the year before. Within four hours Alan had the replacement bearings and seals on the plane to the customer.

Says Alan, "I am a businessman and I can relate to a customer whose operation is down or in need of a certain piece of equipment. I feel it is my job to service and work with our customers until they are fully satisfied." P.O. Box 530 * Bensenville, Illinois 60106-0530 * Phone (312) 350-2200 * Fax # 1-312-595-3993

In all, 130 people work in offices, engineering, research and manufacturing. Another 45 people work at two subsidiaries, Johnson Energy Technologies, Inc., Gonzales, Louisiana, an insulation jacketing firm, and Specialty Castings, Inc., Springport, Michigan, a foundry.

Factory-trained Johnson District Sales Representatives are located in over 50 U.S. cities, as well as principal locations worldwide. Johnson Joints and other steam-related products are manufactured in Canada, France, Argentina, Mexico, Japan, Spain and by affiliates in Brazil, England and Holland.

We're the world's leading supplier of a full line of quality rotary pressure joints, devices first invented by Johnson and used to effect a connection between a stationary pipe and a rotating cylinder, drum, dryer or can so a heating or cooling medium can be transferred without leakage. Joints are produced in numerous sizes, shapes and materials for many varied uses. Some carry steam, water, brine, heat transfer fluids, liquids, other flow media and vapors or gases at up to 650 [degrees] F. Some joints are designed for rotating syphon or distribution pipes. Some are self-supporting, some are rod-supported. Some handle hot or cold water and other flow media on very high speed equipment. Some are sealed and maintenance-free, installing quickly and easily on roll applications. Construction may range left or right hand threads and even quick-release nipples.

Other Johnson products include syphon elbows, rotary and stationary syphons, sight flow indicators, flexible metal hose, air and steam separators, vacuum breakers, cylinder and solenoid operated valves, level controls and condensate handling systems.

Our new two-story, $2 million Research Center, dedicated in May 1988, houses two large test dryers, as well as state-of-the-art laboratories for studies centered on analysis of equipment and machines for industry mills.

Johnson testing helps ensure the most productive and cost-effective use of capital resources. The new center includes computerized control rooms, training facilities, equipment test labs, seal ring test areas, hot oil test stand, and ongoing tests of Johnson and other equipment. For instance, we constantly research our rugged, heavy-duty valves and low-maintenance, highly-efficient condensate handling systems used to return condensate from process to the boiler room.

These condensate systems can reduce condensate handling energy costs by as much as 30%, meaning fast payback through low energy-use costs, reduced make-up water charges and water treatment costs.

Mayer Wildman Industries introduces versatile new MR-11S braiding system

Mayer Wildman Industries recently introduced the MR-11S, a patented braiding system which is unmatched in versatility and quality.

The MR-11S features a microprocessing system to assist in operating and monitoring the machine for the ultimate in cost-saving efficiency and quality control. This system has the capability to:

* provide data for Statistical Process Control


* automatically operate the braider.

* monitor its performance.

* record production in meters/feet.

* indicate maintenance schedules.

* inform the operator of all operations/malfunctions

at all times.

* record machine stops and operator-initiated

stops and display the reason for the stop, such

as broken braid, broken wire, low-oil pressure,

empty bobbin, bobbin change, maintenance or

no work.

* record minutes of lost production and the

number of meters/feet lost for each stop.

* display running efficiency of the machine.

There is no other braiding system with a more advanced method of maintaining quality control and maximizing performance. Exclusive on the MR-11S are Ultrasonic Sensors which constantly measure the diameter of the yarn/wire bobbins on the deck in order to maximize the speeds according to the bobbin weight.

The MR-11S operates on the principle that as the bobbin weight decreases, the machine speeds up, thereby increasing productivity.

Measuring the bobbin diameter and correlating the product on the MR-11S, the Ultrasonic Sensors calculate the proper rotor rpm for the largest bobbin on the deck. The actual rotor rpm is then adjusted and will be corrected accordingly on a continual basis throughout the production process.

As a leading manufacturer of quality textile machinery since 1971, Mayer Wildman Industries, Inc. utilizes advanced technology to design engineer, manufacture, sell and service high quality, circular knitting, high pile and braiding equipment on a worldwide basis.

Headquartered in Orangeburg, S.C., Mayer Wildman provides manufacturing, machine installation technical service, spare parts, reconditioning and technical training where and when needed.

Responding to Industry Needs

For years, you've known Mitchell to be a leader in cutting and grinding equipment -- a company more than capable of meeting your rubber part production needs. As you needs expand, so do the capabilities of Mitchell's cutters and grinders. Having exclusively served molders and extruders of rubber components for over 40 years, Mitchell can undoubtedly match the needs of this industry with the dependable, quality machinery you demand. In '89, newly improved indexers, precision ball screws and stepping motors are found on ALL Mitchell cutters and grinders. Improved componentry means improved performance. And, with the increased speed and accuracy of Mitchell machinery comes more efficient piece part production for you. When extremely precise cuts and high volume yield are demanded, Mitchell's Automatic Double Angle Cutter easily completes the job. Model 111-DAC SIMULTANEOUSLY performs angle and end cuts, drastically reducing your operating cost per part. A molded or extruded tube can be loaded and then square cut, square cut with one edge chamfered, cut one side square with one side interior beveled, or cut to other shape specifications. The Double Angle Cutter also reduces your tooling costs, as those parts once cavity molded can now be produced easily and efficiently on this revolutionary cutter from Mitchell. Model 111-DAC and the Automatic Rubber Cutter, Model 115, will be featured at Rubber Expo '89 in October. Both models will be on continuous production runs during the show -- automatically cooling, loading and cutting molded tubes -- allowing attendees the opportunity to view the speed and accuracy of Mitchell machines. Mitchell has once again expanded its facility in Elkhart, Indiana in response to its ever-increasing production demands from customers. Each addition of space affords an opportunity for Mitchell to design and custom build quality, precision rubber machinery for a broader customer base. Ed Mitchell, President of Mitchell, Inc. comments on the changing industry and the role his company plays in those changes: "The demand for speedy, dependable equipment just continues to grow, and the need for profile cuts is increasing right along with it. Tolerances are becoming more and more critical on all compounds." Mitchell continues, "I feel our capabilities and advancements in this industry can only increase, because our cutting equipment is made flexible enough to accommodate numerous compounds -- rubber, plastics and especially TPE. And on top of that, ALL are designed to speed up production, reduce cost, and provide customers with the short pay-back period they demand." Mitchell adds, "With the ability to not only meet the industry's needs, but to meet them in such a way as to help our customers' profits grow, everyone prospers."


Mitchell cutters make rubber seals, gaskets, drive belts, rings and other mechanical goods easier and faster to produce. This means less time, labor and scrap are required in your molding or extruding operation. Our knowledge of the rubber business and our experience make Mitchell your best source for precision cutting equipment. We design, engineer, build, test and ship our equipment with an exacting eye on high performance output and reliability. The end results of having Mitchell cutters on your shop floor will be cost efficiency and precision piece part production.
