Haitian Molding machine ZE2300

Required Info for quoting an Electric Injection Molding Machine

The goal is to make sure that your mold will fit, the screw will work with your material, and your process will operate as good and better than it currently does. We will need this information to complete a quote for your injection molding machine Below we've explained why we need each piece of information and why it is helpful.

Required Info for quoting an Electric Injection Molding Machine

The goal is to make sure that your mold will fit, the screw will work with your material, and your process will operate as well and better than it currently does. We will need this information to complete a quote for your injection molding machine Below, we’ve explained why we need each piece of information and why it is helpful.

Haitian Injection Molding machine VE1900

All Electric from 44 US tons to 1500 US tons

What is the machine size of the Electric Injection Molding Machine you are considering?

This helps us understand a couple of things:

  • Tie Bar spacing always needs to be considered when planning which molds will go into your machine
  • Daylight is an important factor to consider, especially on molds with long cores (and require robot extraction)
  • The tonnage required to make a good part (a function of the surface area of your shot)

Hybrid or Electric Injection Molding Machine?

  • Hybrid or Servo-Hydraulic vs. All-Electric Injection Molding Machine, we can provide you with either one. There are many advantages of All-Electric machines if you can justify them.

Use this tool to calculate the operating savings you will realize over the machine’s life..

What is your mold stack height?

  • This will help us understand and ensure that your mold will fit into the molding machine and clamp tightly for processing and maintaining tonnage.

What are your daylight requirements?

  • We need to understand if your mold has long cores and/or if you are using a robot for extraction; this way, we are sure the mold will open far enough based on the machine clamp stroke.

What is the required shot size?

  • This helps us understand how to size the barrel and perform a residence time study if required.

What kind of material(s) will you be running?

  • This helps us understand what kind of screw and barrel to put on the machine and make sure we install the appropriate tip for optimal mix and flow.

Do you use Hot or Cold runners?

  • This is always helpful to know as we specify the molding machine and/or a robot setup.

If Hot, do you use valve gates? If so, how many, and are they sequenced?

  • Our machines have complete software requirements to run a valve-gated system. Please provide as much detail as possible. We also work with RJG if you are implementing these controls as well.

Do you use core pull?

  • Our machine comes with software controls for core pull, it is crucial for us to understand this upfront as we can provide stand-alone hydraulic units with different flow rates.

If yes, how many are electric, hydraulic, or pneumatic?

  • Our machine comes with software controls for core pull, it is essential for us to understand this upfront as we can provide stand-alone hydraulic units with different flow rates.

If hydraulic, do you need a power pack quoted?

  • Our machine comes with software controls for core pull, it is essential for us to understand this upfront as we can provide stand-alone hydraulic units with different flow rates.

Do you use unscrew, and if so, how many?

  • This helps us understand what kind of hardware/controls we need to consider.

Do you use air eject, and if so, how many?

  • This helps us understand how many valves will need to be installed.

Will you need a robot interface plug?

  • It is essential for us to understand this ahead of time, so we install the correct SPI plug. Please consider there are 2 SPI standards; 32 pin and 50 pin.
  • Both SPI standards can be reviewed here

Will you need an RJG eDart interface plug?

  • This helps us understand which components will need to be installed specifically for your machine.
  • If you need an eDart quote, you can find more information from us here..

Will you need ejector retract verification sensors?

  • This is very helpful to specify from the beginning for ease of installation.
  • These sensors can be quoted with your machine and purchased from our online store under Smartflow.
