Plug and play for melting units01.Oct 2019
A project-specific melting performance and material processing is an important factor for stable processes, protection of material and corresponding long-life cycle of the equipment.
In order to offer the possibility of adapting the melting devices flexibly to the respective project, we have developed our "Plug and Play" system. A special hybrid cable and appropriately assigned Han Yellock connector as well as master-slave communication between machine and meltong unit enable a quick change and ensure that the machine programme automatically switches to the connected unit and the corresponding parameters and operating screens are loaded.
Since 2014/15, processing with extruders has also been increasingly used in the Low Pressure Moulding. OptiMel has adapted this technology to the conditions and parameters in Low Pressure Moulding and developed a special version with injection via an additional plunger unit. This avoids pressure peaks and combines the advantages of the extruder with the requirements for processing of sensitive electronic components.
