Carbon Dioxide for GIP

Boost of Performance in Process and Results

The broad spectrum of the gas and water injection technique is now being expanded with the use of CO₂ for more efficient process control (figure: Maximator)

Alongside system integration and production efficiency, lightweight construction – as already illustrated with thermoplastic structural foam molding and the production of continuous fiber-reinforced moldings – can be regarded as one of the three dominant trends in the field of injection molding. Apart from these examples, lightweight construction means in many cases the successful substitution of metallic with plastic products.

Examples of this are media pipes for automotive applications that are frequently produced using the fluid injection technique. Against this background, Maximator GmbH, Nordhausen, Germany, will be presenting the potential of the gas and water injection pressure technique (GIP/WIP) for lightweight construction. The company recently adapted its WIP technology for the production of fiber-reinforced hollow moldings. As a new process variant, the use of carbon dioxide (CO₂) offers a boost to performance in the process and results, according to the manufacturer, in a shortening of the cycle time for GIP parts of more than 30 % (Fig.).
