Nissei Plastic Industrial Co. Ltd. will show seven injection molding machines at NPE2018, including the technologies of electric molding, hybrid molding and vertical molding.
Nissei will be at Booth W923.
The hybrid press, called FNX460III-160A, has a 501-ton clamping force. At NPE2018, the press will hold letter cases on a two-cavity mold. Nissei's hybrid machines are equipped with the X-Pump hybrid pump system, which combines advantages of hydraulics and electrics, to cut power consumption by up to 55 percent from conventional hydraulic machines.
Another hybrid injection press, the FNX220IV-50A, is under development as the next-generation in the FNX-IV series. Nissei will display a prototype model at NPE. Features include wide tie-bar spacing and more extended daylight, which has significantly increased the range of mold thickness. The FNX Series is equipped with a straight hydraulic clamping system, which the company said is not susceptible to external disturbances. It has the latest controller, the Tact 5.
Nissei, a long-time advocate of optimal low clamping force molding, takes this idea further by developing N-SAPLI, low-pressure molding, which controls clamping force while reducing the injection peak pressure, to simplify molding conditions. Advantages include prolonging the life of the machine and mold, reducing cycle time through shorter injection holding pressure and mold cooling, and reducing mold defects by improving mold gas venting efficiency, and reducing the clamping force.
Nissei also is showing a 397-ton NEX-IV electric injection press, molding mugs on a two-cavity mold.
Another press, a small 22-ton hybrid vertical machine in the STX Series, will run with a two-arm SCARA robot that puts in inserts, removes the part, cuts the gate and does assembly. The robot is collaborative, so it does not require a safety guard to work alongside a human.
In micromolding, Nissei will show a 7.8-ton press, the NPX-7, outfitted with a Smart Feeder — a Nissei-designed device that prevents material feeding problems and stabilizes melting and plasticizing of the resin. Nissei claims to hold almost 40 percent of the market in Japan for presses from 1-19 tons to mold very small precision parts. The little machines are used to mold parts for a variety of industries, such as automotive, electronics and medical devices.
The company will run an automated insert molding turnkey system running liquid silicone rubber — turning out a magnifier with an LSR lens.
NPE-goers also will see Nissei 4.0 that uses the injection molding machine to pull data from the mold and material, plus all devices such as auxiliary equipment and the overall factory environment.
Nissei Plastic Industrial is based in Nagano, Japan. Nissei America Inc. is in Anaheim, Calif.
