Injection molders, extruders, blow molders, and other manufacturers all rely on Plastixs to keep their machines running smoothly in a variety of production and process environments.
As a distributor and manufacturer of high-quality, high-value innovative products for the plastics industry, the Plastixs team understands the needs and challenges that you face. Plastixs clients count on us to increase productivity, eliminate downtime, and prevent small issues from becoming big problems – especially with injection molding, process cooling, and material handling.
Smartflow products are designed and manufactured by Burger & Brown Engineering to help injection molders increase processing efficiency, improve molded part quality and grow profits.
Efficiency and part quality improvements are achieved through cooling water efficiency, faster tool change times, and tooling protection from premature mold closure. Cooling water efficiency products include: cooling water manifolds in anodized aluminum or stainless steel materials. Manifolds can be ordered assembled with IceCube Mechanical flowmeters and regulators or TracerVM series electronic flow meters and Delta-Q flow regulators.
Quick Mold Change components include: SWAP Valve for fast injection mold cooling water evacuation. FasTie Quick Ejector Tie-in Systems and Duoflow manifolds also help molders implement SMED initiatives and change injection molds faster.
In-Mold Sensors for injection molders confirm mold component position, helping to prevent mold damage from out-of-sequence mold closure. Thinswitch ejector plate switch, Smartlock Slide Retainer and Limit Switch and Versaswitch core pull switch are considered industry standards.
Scientific Cooling Classes developed by the company educate molders in mathematical calculations for heat transfer with varying polymers and mold materials. The course also focuses on mold cooling efficiency best practices.
