KraussMaffei and Roctool Sign Global Collaboration Agreement
KraussMaffei Technologies, Munich, Germany, and Roctool from Le Bourget du Lac, France, are intensifying their cooperation in the global marketing of Roctool's inductive mold heating technology HD Plastics (High Definition Plastics). Within the context of the Global Collaboration Agreement, KraussMaffei will be able to offer all injection molding machines from its range with this option within their DMH technology (Dynamic Mold Heating) and can also supply this directly if required.
The decisive benefits of HD Plastics/DMH are the options that allow for design and construction while remaining highly cost-efficient. The one-shot process produces components with premium-quality surfaces, entirely without the technical and financial expenditure of decorated films or painting. As a result, additional in-mold decoration steps such as preforming, punching and feeding have been omitted.
After the successful demonstration during Chinaplas last month in Guangzhou, both companies will shortly be presenting the advantages of the technology, live as part of the KraussMaffei Open House on July 6, 2017 in Queretaro, Mexico. A PX 160-540 of the new all-electric injection molding machine series equipped with a Roctool 50 kw generator will be demonstrating the versatile design options of inductive mold heating using a box cover as an example. According to the partners, different color shading, hologram, gloss or matt effects – everything can be realized with the one-shot process without the need for additional post-mold processing.
