Ultra-precision repeatability, superior polymer process performance and advanced thin wall molding processing
The most important functions of the injection molding machines are:
- CONSTANT plasticizing heat profile
- CONSTANT material viscosity
- CONSTANT filling in constant time
- CONSTANT holding in constant time
Designed on these principles, Sodick achieves a perfect harmony of critical plasticizing and injection functions. These principles are the cornerstone of the V-LINE Two-Stage Plunger design, giving our Sodick machines a value added solution.
Sodick Thermoplastic Injection Molding Machine Features
By utilizing a proprietary linear motor driven servo-valve with the V-LINE Two-Stage Plunger system, we can provide EXACT dosing in every shot.
Difficult Material Applications
Our thermoplastic injection machines perform stable injections, even in difficult material applications like LCP, PC, Ultem, PEEK, PPS and more. Unlike a conventional reciprocating screw using a ring, Sodick separates the plasticizing function from the injection to achieve extremely consistent raw material plasticizing and injection.
Our plunger system to achieves super high speeds and pressures up to 1500mm/sec and 49,700 psi in as little as 0.007 seconds and drops back to 0 in the same amount of time. High response injection is one of the most important characteristics in critical molding applications. Our machine’s quick deceleration is directly attributed to our low mass/low inertia ultra-precision control.
Increased Regrind Ratio / Reduced Mold Cleaning Cycle
Reduced degradation of plastic melt and reduced opportunity for contamination during processing allows for higher regrind-to-virgin material utilization ratios and reduced mold-cleaning cycles.
