“After installing the MeltFlipper our runner system for a 16-cavity mold that had trouble holding ISO conical dimensions, we are now able to consistently run parts in spec. The MeltFlipper has made the validation of the molding process a breeze. The consistency of the MeltFlipper product has been great. What BTI’s organization has been able to come up with is so simple yet so complex that it is truly amazing.”
“The MeltFlipper technology has completely changed how I look at potential profitability. The benefits I am particularly interested in is cost reduction, a larger processing window, and quality improvement. With the MeltFlipper technology, I was able to use one 16-cavity mold versus multiple low cavitation tools, and enjoy a 28 percent variability improvement.
“A primary objective at our Cortland facility is running with no blocked cavities. To achieve this goal, we’re putting the best technology into our molds, and the MeltFlipper technology is one of those technologies. It successfully addresses one of the largest factors that cause manufacturing to shut off cavities – defects related to unbalanced cavity filling.
We saw a drastic difference when using the MeltFlipper technology. Without any additional work, the MeltFlipper technology reduced our filling imbalance to less than 25% of our original imbalance. I’m recommending that Lord Corp. make the MeltFlipper technology a standard part of all eight cavity molds.
