Micropitch mould technology increases pre-form output

Husky Injection Molding Systems : 26 October, 2001  (New Product)
Husky Injection Molding Systems has introduced two new Micropitch moulds. The 144 cavity mould will be on display at K 2001.
Husky Injection Molding Systems has introduced two new Micropitch moulds. The 144 cavity mould will be on display at K 2001. Husky’s new 72 cavity moulds are already in production at customer sites. The design of these new moulds allows mould cavitation to be increased in 300 and 600 tonne machines. Increasing cavitation is one of the most effective ways of increasing output while reducing pre-form costs.

The new 144 and 72 cavity systems provide significant gains over conventional PET systems. In the case of the 144 cavity mould, system output increased by 50% over a 96 cavity, 600 ton system. Plus, Husky’s new 144 cavity mould fits into existing Husky 600 ton machines. The same holds true for the 72 cavity system, which showed gains of 50% over conventional 48 cavity, 300 ton systems. And once again, the new 72 cavity mould fits easily into existing Husky 300 ton machines.

“These moulds use our Micropitch stack design,” says Reinhart Dravetz, Product Manager in Husky’s Index Systems group. “This stack accommodates pre-forms with thread finishes up to 30mm in diameter.”

There are a number of options available with Husky’s new 144 cavity and 72 cavity moulds to further improve outputs. They include:

Patented 3-position take-off plate
Patented CoolJet technology
Optical part detection
