Mid States offers new pre-engineered runnerless and mold cycle reduction technology. Jason Scheumann of Mid States Tool & Machine reviews a high speed runnerless molding technology which has been developed by his firm for use in clients’ molds. This proprietary runnerless system is available on all new rubber molds and cold runners and as well can be in most cases retrofitted into existing tooling. Using Isobar heat transfer technology as its basis, Mid-States engineering staff has designed a series of predictable engineering solutions for simplifying the runnerless manifold requirements for injection molds. “These predictable building block manifold configurations along with pre-engineered energy transfer inserts allow us to provide our clients with economical, quickly delivered enhancements to traditional mold designs that will lower production cycles and reduce maintenance costs,” says Scheumann. Jason further comments that ”with the high cost of molding materials today, scrap is a critical component of any value equation. With our new Isobar Technology based runnerless and heat transfer systems, that costly scrap is essentially eliminated from the equation and the benefit drops right to the bottom line.” This proprietary runnerless technology and methodology is only available through Mid States as a value added provider of Isobars developed and manufactured by Acrolab Ltd. of Windsor Ontario Canada and sold exclusively under license by The French Oil Mill Machinery Company of Piqua Ohio. Douglas A. Smith of French Oil Mill Machinery Company will present Isobar Based Engineered Systems, which utilizes Isobar heat transfer technology as a foundation. By engineering a guaranteed solution with tighter tolerances and more predictable solutions, customers can optimize their molding process. This provides a more accurate and repeatable process that increases productivity and profitability. French Oil Mill Machinery Company now offers newly engineered compression and transfer presses with unique temperature control technologies. The integration of Isobars and Isoplatens with our ruggedly built low deflection presses along with custom-designed hydraulic and electrical control systems provide a superior package to the molding industry.
