Gas Injection Worldwide Ltd. has launched robotic metal spraying technology for making injection molds that heat and cool rapidly.
The technology was developed by Oxford Moulding Technology Ltd. of Oxford, England, a collaboration of Gas Injection Worldwide and the University of Oxford. Gas Injection claims exclusive rights to the technology, which it licenses from the university.
The controlled spraying proc¼ess reduces the thermal mass within a mold, which allows it to be heated and then cooled quickly during a molding cycle. The technology also produces blemish-free, high-gloss moldings, with no flow lines and streaks, the company said.
Gas Injection Worldwide, a former division of Hong Kong-based Gas Injection HK Co. Ltd., began trading Aug. 1 as an independent company in the United Kingdom.
Terry Pearson, former chairman of Cinpres Gas Injection Ltd., is the chairman of Gas Injection Worldwide and Oxford Moulding. Raymond Foad is sales director.
