With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018, Amerimold 2018 and IMTS 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: Millutensil’s BV26E-R spotting press, which the company highlighted at Amerimold 2018, is built for safety and comfort for users.

Millutensil is showcasing the BV26E-R spotting press model at Amerimold 2018 in Booth 103. For validating and handling molds up to 980 mm x 750 mm in size, this spotting press occupies a small footprint. Designed for ergonomics and safety, the upper and lower platens can both rotate and descend, and the lower platen can tilt up to 75 degrees. For an aging workforce, comfort for moldmakers and maintenance employees has become an important consideration in the design, the company says.

The press is equipped with linear scales, so the company says that mold builders can relax knowing that their molds are being accurately validated. In addition, the Auxiliary Cylinder Control Unit and Ejector Pin features of this press enable the actuators or slides and ejection system to all be simulated during operation. This press is equipped with many other unique features as well, such as the Siemens Touch-Panel, Energy Accumulators, Remote Assistance Device and Wax Injection Unit.
