French toolmaker JP Grosfilley SAS has partnered with medical mold builder X-Cell Tool & Mold Inc., as its representative in North America. While some companies have developed rotary-stack, or “cube” molds for multi-component molding, Grosfilley’s approach to multi-shot molding is different. It uses rotating Index Plates on a single parting line to permit multiple consecutive functions—such as injection overmolding, cooling, in-mold assembly, injection in “hidden time” and even injection-blow molding—all within a single shot and without extending cycle time.

X-Cell Tool Inc. exhibits its capabilities for designing and building medical molds at NPE2018 in booth S10166. A Grosfilley mold runs on a new model of injection machine in booth W2703 of Milacron, Inc., in a system together with a Mold-Masters hot-runner system and E-Multi auxiliary injector. The mold uses a G2 index-plate system. The product is a two-component drinking glass.
