X3™ Hot Isostatic Press (HIP) Barrels

X3™ Hot Isostatic Press (HIP) Barrels

If you process polymers that are chemically aggressive or contain abrasive fillers, then standard barrels are most likely not up to the task at hand. X3™ barrels are manufactured via the Hot Isotactic Press (HIP) process, which utilizes ultra-high pressures and temperatures that remove internal voids and create a strong, uniform metallurgical bond throughout the entire barrel. The result is near 100% density and dramatically improved fatigue strength. X3™ barrels last many times longer than standard barrels. Give us a call today and let’s start talking about how X3™ HIP barrels can improve your operation.

Better Melt Monitoring


Melt Profiler™ I System

Melt Profiler™ I System

The Melt Profiler™ I System offers plastics processors a cost-effective way to monitor actual melt temperature in real-time. Temperature readouts are taken every 2 seconds and displayed graphically on a laptop computer or tablet.

Melt Profiler™ II System

Melt Profiler™ II System

The Melt Profiler™ II System is the same as the Melt Profiler I except that it has a stand-alone DAQ unit that is capable of reading two sensors instead of just one. It can also be fitted with a warning light to alert users if the melt temperature is out of range. The Melt Profiler™ II System includes (1) Stand-Alone Model 603 Data Acquisition Device (DAQ) and (1) Temp-Sense™ Nozzle Sensor.

Melt Profiler™ VII

Melt Profiler™ VII

The Melt Profiler™ VII System monitors actual in-line melt temperature during the injection molding process. It utilizes a specially fabricated sensor and proprietary software to measure melt temperature 157 times per second and turn that data into knowledge that has never before been available to injection molders. This exciting new technology is affordable, easy to use, and does not require expensive in-mold sensors. It's the only system in the world that allows you to see how changes in raw material, machine components, or machine settings truly affect the most important factor in the molding process—the melted polymer. Call us today to learn how the Melt Profiler™ VII System can significantly enhance the control you have over the injection molding process.

Inject-Ex™ Plasticating System

Inject-Ex™ Plasticating System

This revolutionary new plasticating system was designed to ensure that each pellet is exposed to the exact same amount of energy during its journey from the hopper to the mold. The result is a melt that is more uniform and homogeneous than that produced by today's conventional reciprocating screw systems. Not only does the Inject-Ex™ produce greater quality melt, but it also delivers that melt in a more precise manner due to its compact, straightforward design that results in greater accuracy and control. Inject-Ex™ Systems can be retrofitted onto existing presses to turn old machines into "better than new." They can also be designed for molding machine OEMs who want to offer greater processing control to their customers. Call us today to learn how the Inject-Ex System can improve the profitability of your molding operation.

Better Melt Purging


AquaPurge Barrel Blitz Universal Purging Compound

Barrel Blitz Universal Purging Compound

Barrel Blitz Universal (BBU) is a mechanical purging compound that provides a deep-clean of the screw and barrel in order to get the machine back to its original condition. Whether Injection or Extrusion, Barrel Blitz Universal will not just perform the color change or material change but will return the screw back to mint condition—as if brand new. BBU thrives on problem materials or processes, high to low-temperature changes, heat-sensitive materials (PVC, POM, PBT, Flame-retardant additives), metalizing ABS or PA, and high-temperature materials. Never tried Barrel Blitz before? Give us a call to find out how to get a free sample.
