Rubber and Silicone Molding Solutions 05.08.2020

August 5, 2020 (Hebron, KY, USA) DESMA is thankful to be able to contribute molding solutions in the US market during the COVID-19 crisis. As an example of this work is a recent partnership and sale of equipment to a company involved in the manufacturing of medical industry and safety respirators.

DESMA aided this customer by refreshing an aging installed machine base. The older injection molding machines were plagued with reliability issues and outdated electrical controls. Maintaining very tight tolerances and stringent quality requirements on their molded products required the investments.

Their new DESMA machine has evolved technology such as the fully hydraulic Benchmark clamping unit design with superior clamping force distribution and an ergonomically low working height.  It also includes a hi-resolution, trend based control system called the DESMA DRC 2030 TBD. This new control system has a large 24” touch screen display with control data and settings consolidated on one screen page allowing for easier parameter adjustments. The control system includes process data acquisition with trend graphics as well as network capability with DESMA’s Smart Connect device. This new technology was announced at the K-Fair in Dusseldorf in the fall of 2019 and is now in full production. The new control system is designed for IoT connectivity, for greater integrations and remote support.
