Bottle Closure Lines from a Single Source

Husky

Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd., Bolton, Ontario, Canada, has taken its products to a new stage of development. Through special designs of injection molding machines, molds, hot runners, auxiliaries and control software, the system provider claims to have increased productivity while reducing energy consumption. Here, Husky is exploiting the fact that all these components for a functional production cell are developed and manufactured in-house.

The new HyCap 4 produces bottle closures while consuming 40 % less energy (© Husky)

With the development of HyCap 4 (Fig. 7), a system for producing bottle closures that will be premiered at K, the manufacturer has slashed energy consumption by 40 % compared with the machines in the existing series. This saving has been achieved through the use of servo drives as well as the implementation of an electric clamp unit and energy recovery during the clamp stroke. At the same time, performance has not been sacrificed at all.

The new HyCap 4 offers built-in features that are designed to simplify operation of the injection molding machine, so that the skill levels of all individual operators can be accommodated. For example, ejector control has been improved and sensor-driven, automatic mold alignment to reduce mold wear has been implemented. Further information on mold maintenance, process set-up and operation for each start-up is provided by Husky’s patented Mold ID Technology, and will make daily life a lot easier in many injection molding firms.
