and Precision: The Injection Molding
Are your molds single-piece or two?
Loaded vertically or horizontally?
Do you use lifting eyes or slings?
Are your rams retractable?
North American Industries knows
your business. And we know what questions
We also know that injection molding
operations are all about control.
Unlike many of your industrial counterparts,
you may have low duty cycles, but
your mold-changing process also requires
unusual precision, and often involves
unusual runway structure designs and
dimensional constraints to accommodate
your other equipment, such as water-cooling
lines and robotic extractors.
Your cranes also often require specific
functions, such as slow variable speeds
on all moving components, or true
vertical lifts on hoists.
Infinitely variable speed controls
allow the movement of the hoist, trolley
and / or end trucks to be precisely
regulated by the operator from 1%
to 100% of the main speed, and any
speed in between. With this option,
the load is lifted or moved at precisely
the desired speed--very slow for precise
positioning, moderate speed for cluttered
areas, or full speed for efficiency.
In addition to
variable speed invertors
offer other significant advantages:
- Dramatically reduce wear
on brakes (15-fold),
quick, repetitive starts;
wear / extend
life of gear motors and couplings;
- Eliminate contactors.
bottom line? At North American, we’ve served enough facilities
like yours to know that no two injection-molding
plants are alike. And we have the
design flexibility to respond to your
unique needs, as well as demands common
to every industry—quality, reliability,
and attentive customer service.
