The French firm Walker Braillon Magnetics is marketing its Pressmag, a magnetic clamping system for injection molds.
Two magnetic platens are retrofitted to the press platens. A controller interfaces with the standard machine controller via a standard RS232 connection. Each platen also has a mold sensor.
Pressmag is compatible with all types of presses. No mold modifications or special flanges are needed. A brief electronic pulse moves the platens against the mold, which remains permanently held, magnetized and in place, without additional current.
Walker Braillon Magnetics is based in Montmelian, France.
