IMS Co. now is the exclusive distributor of Nitrojection nozzles and other accessories for gas-assisted injection molding.
Nitrojection Corp. of Middlefield, Ohio, also offers shut-off valves and nozzles, add-on gas port adaptors and in-mold gas pins.
IMS, of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, also is offering a new heater band with only one seam instead of two. Instead of a pressure plate, the sides of the shell on the S-bands are extended to meet and form a single seam. Fewer seams reduce the chance of plastic leaking into the band and shorting out the heating element.
IMS also announced its granulators have an option of dual- feed hoppers, which provide an opening in the front for manual feeding and on top for feeding from a robot.
A new wrench from IMS is designed to speed up screw-tip changes and prevent damage to equipment. The company also said it is stocking Rout-A-Burr deflashing tools.
