Moog Inc.'s Industrial Group has introduced innovations in electrical and hydraulic systems for injection molding presses and blow molders. The company also offers a new control valve for large-tonnage injection presses and a new line of servovalves.
Moog said its motion control for large blow molding machines helped usher in all-electric blow molders, with high mold carriage speed and high clamping forces. The new Moog nonlinear electric drive mechanism can generate high speeds comparable to hydraulic power, but with a 50 percent energy savings.
For injection presses, the company offers a Moog servodrive, a servomotor and a nonlinear injection unit. The system can deliver injection speeds of up to 1,000 millimeters per second.
The new Moog servovalves are called the D672, D639 and D638. The line of valves controls speed and force during injection, accumulators and nozzle-touch, ejectors and core pulls.
Moog also introduced an Axis control valve, with integrated software, for controlling the clamping units on large injection molding machines. The digital valve allows the press to adhere precisely to a defined motion profile, for a high level of repeatability.
The Moog industrial operations group is based in East Aurora, N.Y.
