Klockner Desma Elastomertechnik GmbH has introduced a rubber injection molding machine that produces large parts. The machine, designated 968.1800 ZO, uses Desma´s clamp and FIFO injection unit designs and features a clamping force of 2,000 tons and an injection unit capable of a 60-lb. shot. Other advantages include the low strip feed intake and the patented utilities feed system that supplies steam, air, and electricity to the mold core. The system, which is integrated into the center core-raising mechanism, eliminates the problems that occur with repeated flexing of hose and cables, the firm said.
