In addition, manual or semi-automatic inserts are also often used in rapid mold tooling. WayKen takes a proactive approach to plastic projects, providing cost-effective and rationalized advice from designs, materials, production processes, manufacturability, etc.
When you need low-volume production molded parts on a short timeline, there are no limitations to what we can produce. With this, WayKen operates like an automated assembly line. From prototype molding to production tooling we can make injection molding tools from AluminumP20 and NAK80 semi-hardened steels and H13 fully-hardened steel.
In addressing design issues early on, the DFM helps to eliminate costly re-tooling or delays in the manufacturing process caused by a problematic part design. AL, Corona Plastics Ltd Everybody is impressed with the quality of your work, in fact a few people thought they were the Die-Cast parts.
WayKen is a hassle free plastic part manufacturer who can do all under one roof, including design and tool building, tool debugging, material selection, and the injection molding process.
Motorola Mobility developed two back covers from a thermoplastic composite for its MotoX and Ultra line of smart phones using RocTool 3iTech induction technology.
We can support low to medium volume production runs from our tooling so it doesn't just have to be for prototyping. The Future Of Rapid Prototyping. Choose the Right Material of Mold Tools At WayKen, our technologies provide complete mold making capability and immediate support for tool modifications.
At WayKen, We blend traditional injection mold tooling methods with rapid mold tooling to produce plastic molded parts quickly and cost efficiently at production quality instead of molded prototypes still in development and testing phases.
The BFMold technology replaces the cooling channel circuit that courses through a mold, instead utilizing the entire volume of space that exists below the cavity structure.
Aluminum is a very strong conductor of heat. All commercially available plastic materials are available. With 3iTech the magnetic field and electromagnetic current is generated in a channel in the tool, and then by conduction the tool surface is heated, says Boulanger.
For larger parts, Worrell works with Advanced Molding Technologies, a neighboring injection molding company with a ton press. Our proprietary process and experienced team focusing on your project enables us to bust the standard industry lead time for tooling and molding.
Another area where 3D IM is imperfect literally is in surface finish. Inject the melted material into the closed mold cavity through a reciprocating screw inside the barrel of the machine. By using an insert in the 3D IM mold, the designers managed to achieve the tight tolerance and smooth surface required of the part.
Over the past year, a hybrid prototyping process has begun to emerge, offering medical device developers the best of both worlds — the speed and economy of 3D printing combined with the material and accuracy advantages of IM.
The unit, designed for BFMold, provides direct heating and either indirect or direct cooling for flow temperatures up to degrees Fahrenheit.
Cooling water is generally run at approximately degrees Fahrenheit 40 degrees Celsiussays Boulanger.
We will help you weigh each of these advantages to find the best solution for your needs. Open the mold and get the finished part by ejector. Hand loads in these situations offer simple solutions to complex design challenges, which can be the best approach for efficiently producing complex plastic parts and low-volume runs at lower cost and shorter lead time.
Unless otherwise specified, we comply with the DIN standard tolerances for plastic injection moldings. The biggest difference is the heat profiles of the molds themselves. The technique turns out sample parts much more quickly and cheaply than conventional manufacturing methods, enabling designers to significantly shorten iteration cycles and speed time to market for their products.
Often, 3D-printed materials lack the tensile strength or other important properties of final production materials, making them unsuitable for true functional testing. An operator removes the hand loads from the part and reinstalls them into the mold for the next shot. Rapid injection moulding allows us to make prototype injection moulded parts in a production thermoplastic resin.
These parts may be used for final sign off. When your production tooling won’t be ready for months, rapid injection molding (also known as prototype molding or soft tooling) then is a great option for you to receive parts quickly with less cost. From functional prototype, to short runs, and then production parts, we combine rapid injection molding processes with proprietary technology and an experienced manufacturing team to deliver high quality injection molded parts, helping you reduce design risks and save overall production costs.
Rapid Injection Tooling Let’s say your project calls for the manufacture of rapid injection molding parts made from your chosen production material.
Here’s the thing, though – You need them super fast and cost-effectively. Wittmann Battenfeld has offered its BFMold (ball filled mold) rapid heating and cooling mold technology for use with its Battenfeld line of injection presses for three years, and has one installation in the U.S.
with several others in testing there, says Wes Moffitt, regional sales manager, auxiliaries. Rapid injection moulding allows us to make prototype injection moulded parts in a production thermoplastic resin.
