Molding Machinery

Turning-Stack System produces multi-component parts quickly.

Turning-Stack System is based on rotary cube with 4 equal mold faces, arranged between platens of injection molding machine. After mold opens, pre-injected piece is held on cube and turned in steps of 90°. On 2 inactive sides of cube, other operations can be carried out simultaneous with injection process. Cube design eliminates asymmetrical forces on platens. Depending on mold size and...
