Technological development and the most modern trends are increasingly directed towards reducing the size of mechanical, optical and electronic devices. We responded instantly in order to follow the progress and the needs of the market, by thinking big but designing small. Our challenge: the design of mini molds.
For the past six months, with the purchase of a mini press, our technical department has dealt with a new test and has immersed itself in the world of technopolymer mini gears and, more generally, of plastic mini components.
The challenge was complicated: using the same components of a medium-large mold, we had to adapt them to the small size of the mold holders (96x96 mm or 75x75 mm).
Despite the technical difficulties, the test was successfully passed and we managed to create mini molds of all types, with submersible or hot chamber injection, for polyamide and POM gears and also for advanced technopolymers such as PA46 and PEEK with a minimum weight of 0.01gr and maximum of 15gr.
This solution, combined with the particular energy efficiency of the press, allows us to produce the molds with an ultra-competitive hourly cost. Furthermore, the speed of the press and its reliability make it able to compete at the level of pieces/h with multi-cavity molds installed on traditional presses, but with reduced mold and tooling costs.
