- Cycle times reduced for plastic injection
- Also suitable for composites
RocTool has launched new RocTool Performance Cooling (RPC) units to complement its induction heating equipment range for plastic injection and composites processes.
The company now offers a wide range of equipment designed to deliver high performance cooling, mainly for RocTool technology users (e.g. the new C-series has been designed specifically for RocTool processes). Dedicated to both plastic injection and composites processes, the units are easily controlled by RocTool’s operator friendly interface.
Cycle times reduced for plastic injection
One of the main objectives for RocTool teams working on RPC units is to optimize cycle times and to increase equipment productivity. With the C2V, for instance, each RocTool technology user for plastic injection can improve its cooling time by reducing the flow to a laminar state during heating, while accelerating the flow to a turbulent state during cooling. The T9 is a compact thermoregulation unit offering higher cooling power at 140kW compared to standard equipment that hardly exceed 40kW.
Also suitable for composites
Especially designed for RocTool composite processing, the C-series has been developed to improve the complete cycle time by purging the water from the mold in order to reduce the heating time and managing the water flow during the cooling time. The C2V unit is used with a water pressure network higher than 3 bar at 100 l/mn, while the C6, C12 and C24 units are used with a water pressure network at 3 bar maximum (flowrate depends on the model). During the purging sequence, water mixed with compressed air is sent back to a tank to prevent any turbulence in the water network.
