Innovation in Large Part Molding: Huarong's Two-Platen Machine Design

  1. The Suspended Tie-bar Bearing Module supports the tie-bar, reducing energy loss due to friction and effectively improving its natural sagging.
  2. The Patented Inner Supporting Sliding Module and the Patented Moving Platen Positioning Device allow sliding components to be quickly assembled for precise positioning.
  3. Customers are regularly alerted during the production cycle, prompting them to use an inspection jig and gauge to check the height of the moving platen center to prevent abnormal coaxiality of the two platens.
  4. The Optional Patented Tie-bar Disassembles Function can help overcome the inconvenience of installing and removing molds in factories with restricted heights. The detached tie-bar is located on the machine's operation side, making it easier for operators to work.
