Sodick is a global provider of precision plastic injection molding machines for various industries
To a medical molder - The melt stream for V-LINE system mold parts is much cleaner than that of other machines for several reasons.
First, we employ no check ring. Therefore, no material can stick and
degrade on the check ring. Second, due to our design, there is
absolutely no flow-back of material, decreasing the residence time of
the plastic melt. Third, there is relatively much less metal-to-metal
contact (compared to a ring-type check valve, and much less than
3-piece interlocking type check valve), so no metal find its way into
your parts. Finally, our patented bypass nozzle ensures a "first-in,
first-out" scenario for the plastic melt.
Repeatable process on high cavitation applications / Reduction of part weight variations
Small injection units for "residence time" sensitive polymers such as PEEK, PLA, PGA, TPU and LCP
Micro molding capability to adapt miniaturization of medical device development
Highly endosed by many medical OEMs especially in long term implantable applications.
