Get ready to drink up all the technology that will be on display at K 2013 this October, including this 4 x 8 + 8-fold mold for making a cap system for drink bottles or food supplements, which I'm told is setting new standards in cube molds.

FOBOHA has developed and built the first cube system with all-electric drive. All drives (axes) of these molds--from the ejector, via the turning unit right through to the removal handling-have been equipped with servomotors, with FOBOHA setting new standards in cube molds.

Displayed at the Ferromatik Milacron stand in Halle 15 at K 2013 and running on a F 270 CUBE is a 4 x 8 + 8-fold mold for making a cap system for drink bottles or food supplements.

The special feature is that eight bottom and eight top parts are injected for each parting surface. In the 90° position transverse to the longitudinal mold axis, a handling system fully integrated in the mold removes the upper parts from the mold and screws these directly onto the bottom parts which remain in the cavity for this process step. Beside the compactness, another advantage is the system's excellent assembly precision and the related high pro-duction availability. It is always parts from the same cavities which are mounted against each other. The electric handling system designed and built by FOBOHA is programmed via a specially developed FOBOHA operating unit.

The actual product is a two-part screw top which, when closed, can hold a UV-sensitive powder, for example. As soon as the cap is opened, the powder trickles into the bottle and dissolves in the liquid below.
