Integrated Storage-actuator module for continuous power consumption in periodic processes
The injection moulding process is widely known as one of the most advanced processes for manufacturing of parts that range from simple commodities to accurate technical parts made of plastics and rubber. Due to the cyclical process the power consumption is highly discontinuous causing distinct peak power. This article introduces an alternative drive concept, which is able to store energy to a hydraulic accumulator, to realize a continuous power consumption in order to apply the clamping force and to avoid peak power.

The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
