The new X-Series™ instruments are Alpha Technologies’ modular production floor solution for customers who are looking to bring testing closer to the rubber compound mixing line. Actionable rheological data is acquired immediately after the mixing process.
Alpha Technologies introduces the Alpha ATC™ (Automated Test Cell). This next-generation automated production floor testing solution will minimize human interaction as the sample goes through the testing process. The ATC™ receives a sample at the end of the mixing process and takes it through rheological testing all while providing batch release data using Alpha’s Enterprise software.
The relationship between ARLANXEO and RDAbbott is truly collaborative and focuses on how best to service our customers. RDAbbott offers tremendous ordering flexibility and operational versatility. In some cases, customers don’t have the warehouse space to inventory material or their applications don’t require a large amount of product. In response to this need, RDAbbott has been able to intercede on these customers’ behalf by stocking its warehouses with the products that customers want, in the amounts they need—strategically located throughout the United States.
In booth W4143 at NPE2018, Zeiger Industries will be molding an automotive LED headlamp optic made from DOWSIL™ MS-4007 Moldable Silicone on a Milacron-Fanuc Roboshot a-S55iA with their new iHMI Controller that has a two cavity mold mounted to a M.R. Mold universal base with a single drop gated cold runner system. The production cell will utilize an ELMET TOP 5000P dosing system, a Thermal Care air cooled EQ3A01 portable chiller, and a Yushin YC-100S-11-8 robot with an E-Touch Compact controller, a custom engineered end-of-arm tool, and a Yushin indexing conveyor. A virtual molding simulation of the filling and curing process will be provided compliments of SIGMASOFT®. The Zeiger LSR Plug-n-Play Conversion Kit incorporates a Wexco777 water-cooled barrel, Zpringlok™ LSR pre-closed valve, ZSAR PM zero compression ratio screw and their proprietary barrel/screw sealing device.
