Burger Engineering Inc., which makes the Thinswitch ejector plate return switch and other Smartflow-brand auxiliary items for injection molding, has a new name: Burger & Brown Engineering Inc.
The name change reflects the fact that Vice President Mark Brown has purchased a minority stake and assumed responsibility for the company in Olathe, Kan.
Brown earned a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Kansas in 1988.
Brown plans to introduce new products each year and improve the company's manufacturing and customer service.
In product news, Burger & Brown said its Smartflow K-Link ejector cushion acts as a shock absorber for the ejector system of an injection press.
The K-Link protects the mold, ejector bars and the machine itself from fatigue during part ejection. The device also protects against a misaligned home position for the ejector.
