High-speed system improves economics of injection moulded DVD packaging cases

Husky Injection Molding Systems : 25 October, 2004  (Application Story)
Husky has entered the DVD packaging market with a complete solution designed to greatly improve the economics of injection moulding DVD cases.
Husky has partnered with Swiss mould-maker AWM and German automation specialist Ilsemann Automation (Suhling Technik) to develop a demonstration system that moulds eight 63-gram DVD boxes every six seconds. At 95% system efficiency, the Husky system improves the economics of DVD box moulding by 10%.

“We see great potential in the media-packaging marketplace over the next five years,” Bruce Catoen, Husky’s Vice President, Packaging, said. “After talking to our customer base, we determined the key drivers of DVD case moulding are part quality, faster cycles, lightweight, higher cavitation and ease of maintenance. We’re confident we’re addressing these needs, and feel we’ve developed a best-in-class DVD packaging solution.”

In addition to the faster cycles and lighter parts, the Husky system improves ease of maintenance. Husky’s machine-based stack mould carrier allows for full-stroke servicing. All water and air connections have been optimised to improve access and reduce hoses. And, the Husky back-to-back valve gate hot runner system allows for hassle-free maintenance in the press, eliminating the need to remove the mould. This means less downtime for routine maintenance.

The system is currently available for demonstrations at Husky’s Advanced Manufacturing Center, in Bolton, Ontario, Canada.
