Injection unit for cure time reduction
The material is fed into the mould by the EF injection unit (FIFO), the secondary, vertically arranged E injection cylinder (ALL OUT) fully injects all the compound in the mould. Since no material remains in the injection unit it is possible to achieve higher process temperatures and therefore shorter cure times. Compound temperature can be adjusted during injection via the machine control and is stored as a mould specific process parameter like any other. Depending on the compound used, part geometry and process, it is possible to achieve optimum settings.
