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.
“We hold over 26 licenses to the MeltFlipper technology for molds from 4 to 16 cavities. There hasn’t been a situation yet where we haven’t seen benefits. BTI’s level of responsiveness to our needs equals that of our best suppliers. For anyone working with multi-cavity molds, I don’t see where it doesn’t make sense to utilize the MeltFlipper technology.”
“Before using the MeltFlipper technology, we were lucky to get four usable parts out of an eight cavity mold. We tried changing process, press size, press type – nothing worked. Now all cavities fill evenly, and an eight cavity mold makes eight good parts every time. Because of the MeltFlipper technology, we’ve doubled production, halved the amount of time we run the press, and significantly increased the process window.”
At Winzeler Gear, we believe that our success has been driven by our commitment to continuous improvement and our dedication to Strategic Partnerships. When we were faced with a concentricity problem for one of our major automotive customers, we turned to Beaumont Technologies for help. We utilized BTI’s MeltFlipper technology and redesigned the 4 cavity conventional runner system. The end result was a gear with 50% improvement in concentricity.
