“MDP” Screw Tip Performance

One of our customers, a large sophisticated Midwest Injection Molding Manufacturer recently reported some very interesting performance numbers to us while using our “MDP” performance  three piece sliding ring screw tip (NRV) on a 90mm diameter 500 ton Mitsubishi Injection Machine.  The customer was looking for some better performance compared to a Industry Standard “Three Piece Sliding Ring” screw tip so they put our “MDP” design under some scrutiny.  The performance was outstanding; it exhibited a quicker shutoff 12.2-15.2mm cushion compared to 1.6-12.6mm, more consistent with less variation and the “MDP” worked very well with zero decompression whereas the “Three Piece” design simply did not work.  When the weigh scale was working properly, the variation in part weights over 40 consecutive shots was 1.2 grams on a 505 gram part!

We can supply a screw tip that shuts off quickly, is extremely accurate, cost competitive, versatile with all resin groups and can be used without decompression.  If you are interested in seeing the data generated from the test view our “Case Studies” section on our web site or contact us to see what we can do to improve your operation.
