RocTool presents fast molding: foam & 3D laser texturing in one single step

  • Combination of heat/cool process, 3D laser texturing & foam
  • Fast molding of lightweight and thin-walled parts
  • RocTool at #Fakuma

For the first time, RocTool presents a combination of its heat & cool process with technologies from two major suppliers in the plastic injection field: GF Agie Charmilles with its 3D laser texturing method and Trexel’s MuCell and its microcellular foam technology. By combining these technologies, the injection molding process is reduced to a single step for mass production and further cost reductions. Combining these technologies in a single injection molding step meets the requirements of leading electronics, automotive, luxury cosmetic and consumer products industries, according to the company.

As an example, RocTool demonstrates the new technology on an Engel duo 2550/550 molding machine at the Engel stand at #Fakuma 2014. The produced PC-ABS center-console parts designed by RocTool will show high gloss/low gloss, superior fine structure reproduction, varying wall thicknesses, light weight and completely filled parts without defects such as sink marks and weld lines.
