Original Press Release:



Rep Corporation Introduces Specialized TPE/TPR Injection Press



REP Corporation, the recognized world leader in rubber injection molding machine technology, introduces the V18, a 25-ton injection press specifically designed to mold demanding thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) compounds, the fastest growing need of traditional plastics and rubber molders worldwide.

TPE compounds are now used by an increasing number of automotive, appliance, medical, consumer electronic and other OEM's, owing to their cost/recyclability advantages over conventional rubber, their material performance characteristics and their "soft touch" aesthetic appeal to the consumer. In response, more molders have considered various equipment alternatives or modifications to conventional injection presses to process these materials. REP has responded with the V18.

A specially engineered reciprocating plastic injection unit is attached to this press frame. Accurate shot control, precise temperature regulation and eliminating the need for shut-off nozzles with certain materials are the highlights of this injection unit.

The V18 has a small footprint, only 38" x 61", with a decidedly more compact construction design than conventional plastics machines of this injection capacity.
