Celebrating its 50th year in plastics machinery Wilmington Machinery continues to be a leader in Low Pressure Structural Foam Molding Machinery and High-Speed Rotary Blow Molding.
Demand for Low Pressure Injection Molding machinery is strong. Wilmington has continued to find new applications for vertical structural foam presses. The vertical press allows for the installation of nearly 2 machines in the footprint of one traditional horizontal press. With the platens parallel to the floor mold changes are quick and easy.
Wilmington's line of General-Purpose Structural Foam Machines has had a major overhaul with new elevated designs. The elevated design allows for large overhanging molds to clear the floor and part removal under the platen. The updated controls package offers large touch screens with configurable split screens, multi-function trend analysis screens that can be customized, and OEM trends that can be selected to monitor the process. With the addition of our remote connectivity trouble shooting and 24/7 support is a breeze.
The versatility of Low-Pressure Structural Foam machines continues to be used with our integrated gas assist controls as well as Wilmington's redesigned structural web nozzles to channel the gas where needed.
Wilmington has also had great success helping molders transition multiple high-pressure molds to run together in one large platen (up to 108" x 186") low pressure injection molding machine utilizing the nitrogen gas to reduce part densities and save on cycle times and raw materials.
With the Wilmington quick die change packages, molders can use integrated hydraulic die clamp controls and magnetic platens to reduce downtime.
Wilmington Machinery is also expanding its lab/trial capabilities with a new LUMINA 2400HE. The 2400HE has 500 tons of clamping force with an 80" x 70" platen and will be equipped to trial gas assist, structural web, gas counter pressure, and high-pressure molds looking to make the switch to lower density structural foam. The lab is available to those looking to trial new materials, additives, fillers, compounds, molds or just experimentation. Please contact email@example.com to schedule time today.
Plastic pallet manufacturing is still hot and our Pallateer series of machines have been equipped to handle optional gas assist, structural web, and upgraded controls packages. The Pallateer series machines are a less expensive alternative to the general-purpose machinery and are offered as a complete turnkey solution including the machine, mold, robot, resin blending/loading, nitrogen generator, and chiller. With this package you also get the Wilmington know how (50 Years) and training for a company venturing into plastics processing for the first time.
ROTARY BLOW MOLDING:
Rotary Blow molding is the fastest way to produce high quality bottles in an all-electric machine. With processing speeds of 1200 bottles per minute including multi-layer applications. Wilmington's Rotary Blow Molders can run single, dual, or even triple parison. With a Wilmington wheel you can run 2-3 bottles from the same machine without changing molds.
The Wilmington wheels have also been equipped with a large split screen HMI, trend analysis, improved parison profiling, and remote trouble shooting.
Utilizing the new and improved bottle takeout device bottles can be removed from the rotating wheel and conveyed to trimming options without an unscrambling device saving floor space and money.
Wilmington Machines are still made in the USA in our modern facility in Wilmington North Carolina. Please contact us at wilmingtonmachinery.com (https://r20.rs6.net/
