Northbrook, IL – Rogan Corporation, known for its true two-shot, TPE, silicone, and insert and overmolding, has further expanded its extensive molding capacity with the purchase of two state-of-the-art Wittmann Battenfeld two-shot hydraulic injection molding presses. Rogan's ongoing commitment to investing in new technology has resulted in the advancement of the company's molding capabilities and the reduction of cycle times. This benefits customers by providing quicker time to market and more cost-effective production.
These new presses, designed for efficient two-shot molding will also increase Rogan's ability to meet the increasing market demand for more complex parts and component assemblies, while controlling costs.
The two new presses are Wittmann Battenfeld HM Series presses, designed with an extremely short footprint to minimize production space requirements. Each features full clamping force evenly distributed over the entire mold space, rectangular clamping platen, short dry cycle times and high structural rigidity and sturdiness. Precise platen parallelism is maintained during the entire stroke, and platens are supported by low-maintenance linear guides. These features provide a high degree of repeatability of all molding parameters.
In addition, the new presses offer robotics for augmented pick and place operations, and the capability to remove finished parts in three directions, further supporting productivity. They operate through a Windows XP platform and are controlled through a 15-inch high-resolution touch screen.
