Injection molding training firm RJG Inc. has added a new consignment machine to its Gibsonville, N.C., facility.
The Bole 100 EKS C340 is a servo driven hydraulic machine with 110 tons of clamping force, a 3.6-ounce barrel and 45432 plastic pounds per square inch (ppsi) of available injection pressure.
Whie psi measures pressure at the back of the injection cylinder, ppsi refers to the intensified pressure at the front of the screw.
RJG says the servo driven hydraulic system offers high-efficiency, low-energy consumption and features Bole Machinery’s patented central clamping system and floating tie bar design.
“We appreciate the opportunity to showcase Bole’s 100 EKS injection molding machine in our lab,” Marty Key, RJG consultant and trainer, said in a news release. “This consignment allows us to introduce and train our students on the very latest technology available today.”
The machine will be used in classes and workshops called RJG’s Essentials, Fundamentals of Systematic Injection Molding, Decoupled Molding, and Master Molder I and II. RJG says students will be able to interact with the machine to practice what they learn in the classroom, which increases retention and provides students with tangible knowledge they can bring back to the plant floor.
