ORLANDO, Fla.—Nissei America Inc. introduced its NEX-III third-generation all-electric press at NPE2012, demonstrated in-mold labeling by making beer mugs with labels and ran a liquid silicone rubber molding machine.
At NPE, held April 1-5 in Orlando, Anaheim, Calif.-based Nissei molded parts on two NEX-III all-electrics. An NEX-III press with 88 tons of clamping force molded pipettes using a 32-cavity mold, with a cycle time of 71/2 seconds, as a Yushin robot removed the parts. A 55-ton NEX-III made large paper clips.
The NEX presses showed Nissei's new Tact IV controller with a bigger, 15-inch screen area so users can watch two screens at once without having to toggle back and forth. The operator can change molding parameters while monitoring shot data at the same time.
