ORLANDO—Shin-Etsu Silicones of America Inc. said it will be participating in daily technical demonstrations with industry leading equipment partners at NPE 2012.
NPE 2012 will take place April 2-5 in Orlando.
Shin-Etsu said the demos will show off advanced handling and molding properties of its KEG-2000 Liquid Injection Molding System.
The following demonstrations are scheduled to run throughout the four-day exposition:
— A molding cell with Engel North America's (Booth 943) e-victory 310/130 LSR U.S. hybrid tiebarless injection molding machine will produce a flashless liquid silicone diaphragm using KEG-2000-50 in a 64-cavity, valve-gated, cold-runner mold supplied by ACH Solutions of Austria with automatic part removal.
— Milacron (Booth 2803) will be molding a silicone duckbill valve in their Roboshot 55 press using a two-cavity, valve-gated, cold-runner mold built by Roembke Manufacturing. These duckbill valves will also be molded out of Shin-Etsu Silicones' KEG-2000-50, and a Fanuc three-axis robot will remove the parts from the mold.
— Zeiger Industries (Booth 4373) will feature a Sumitomo injection molding machine manufacturing LSR quiche pans made from Shin-Etsu's KEG-2000-70. The quiche pans will be produced in a mold supplied by PTG Silicones and will be demolded automatically.
Shin-Etsu Silicones will be at NPE Booth 57204.
