Here is a quick overview of our plastics solutions featured at NPE:
NEW! PLASTINUM® FOAM Injection Molding
Reduce weight with a physical foam process that requires no changes to your injection molding machines
The patent pending PLASTINUM® FOAM Injection Molding from Linde is a new physical foaming process, that offers a less expensive, more flexible solution than currently available technology. It was developed to address the growing light-weighting trend in automotive and other related industries, as well as the need to reduce raw material costs. It can be used with several machines simultaneously, is and requires no change to your injection molding machines.
PLASTINUM® GAIM CO2 (eGAIM)
Typical Gas Assist processes utilize nitrogen to create hollow parts, like automotive or appliance handles. Linde has invented a process in which nitrogen is replaced with carbon dioxide (CO2), greatly reducing cycle times. Cooling cycles can often be reduced by more than 50% compared to cycles using nitrogen and overall cycles can often be reduced by 20% - 50%. The cooling effect of high pressure CO2 is comparable to that of water in Water Assist Injection Molding (WAIM), without many of the difficulties inherent to WAIM.
PLASTINUM® TEMP S CO2 Spot Mold Cooling
Reduce Cycle times and eliminate sink marks - cooling cores as thin as .025"
See a demonstration in the Linde booth at NPE to learn more about this precisely engineered carbon dioxide (CO2) spot-cooling system that can reduce cycle times and eliminate sink marks without major modifications. It helps achieve more uniform cooling across the part geometry, cooling cores as thin as .025".
CRYOCLEAN® Snow CO2 Cleaning
This solvent-free cleaning process is ideal for preparing parts and components prior to painting or coating. Inert Carbon dioxide (CO2) is inert has no ozone-depleting solvents, and no potential for oxidizing metal as with aqueous-based cleaning systems. Watch video below.
