New player in the injection market

Compose owner Bruno MACHET and Alex GUICHARD, the founder of RocTool and Revology, have joined forces to launch Ironjaw, the first European start-up specialized in boosting the clamping force of injection presses.

“Our system has been successfully tested on several million R&D-stage parts, leading us to create a company that is dedicated to the technology in order to provide the world’s plastics processors and moulders with a cost-effective solution to boost press capacity. The technology makes it possible to use presses that are less powerful but more energy efficient to achieve the same result, with an immediate impact on part production prices,” explains Ironjaw founder and CEO Bruno Machet.

Technology to boost press clamping force

Ironjaw technology is the first system to boost the clamping force of injection presses. It uses a system of steel “jaws” to clamp the mould. The technology produces significant gains in moulding pressure, up to 60%, depending on the configuration, and decreases or even eliminates flash. It works with all types of plastics, including recycled materials, according to the company. It took five years to develop the system, which is now patented.

The first industrial deliveries are announced for mid-2017.
