Original Press Release:


The Trinetics Model 4500 is a state of the art HOT TOOL – COLD INSERT (HTCI) machine. It incorporates a rapid cycle time servo linear actuator that provides economical, highly accurate and repeatable performance. The machines are delivered ready for plug and play/operation or that have been customized to meet the users operationally specific requirements.

This Machine is designed for ease of maintenance with simple and minimum set up procedures. For example, three dimensional XYZ adjustment for insert placement is pre-programmed into an HMI (operator touch panel) that interfaces with a servo controlled positioning table and servo linear slide. This electronic coupling process insures that the Model 4500 is of a high accuracy and tight tolerance positioning device.
