Indexing Stack Mold Speeds Overmolding Jobs.

A new rotary indexing stack mold promises higher outputs in two-component molding. The new mold technology was developed in Germany by Ferromatik Milacron Maschinenbau and toolmaker Foboha GmbH. It is offered here by Ferromatik Milacron Europe, Batavia, Ohio Batavia is a village in Clermont County, Ohio, United States. The population was 1,617 at the 2000 census.

Compared with conventional overmolding using a cavity plate that turns 180[degrees] between two injection positions, the stack-mold technique cuts clamp-force requirements by almost 50% and accommodates twice as many cavities. The two extra stations can also reduce total cycle times. Foboha has built 30 indexing molds for automotive parts and containers.
