Gurten, Austria - Machinery developer Fill Gesellschaft mbH will introduce its "speed mc" mould carrier for back-foaming tools for the first time at Euromold 2009 in Frankfurt, Germany from 2-5 Dec 2009.
Developed with tool specialist Alba tooling & engineering GmbH, the carrier system can achieve closing times of two seconds with its "unique drive concept," thereby reducing cycle times and gaining materials savings, a Fill company statement said.
Speed mc will be mainly used in the production of interior parts for the automotive industry such as dashboards and side trim panels, the statement added.
"In the form of the speed mc we have succeeded in achieving a speed closing previously unattainable in foaming tools, combined with an extreme foaming position," said Wilhelm Rupertsberger, manager of Fill's Plastics Competence Center. (RD)
