R&D Tool & Engineering Co. Key Developments

R&D/Leverage Introduces the Liberty IBM System

R&D/Leverage introduced the Liberty IBM System. When R&D/Leverage began building tooling for the injection blow mold (IBM) market, they found a opportunity to make dramatic improvements to the traditional design of injection blow tools. Some of the problems inherent in a conventionally-designed injection blow mold tool that the Liberty IBM System solves are: Eliminates the ill effect of thermal expansion related problems like bowing of the die-set; Enables the process technicians to do ‘cold starts’ without having to torch the nozzles; Minimizes thermal expansion induced wear at the nozzle tip and gate area, which also eliminates frequent replacement of the nozzle; Eliminates the need of engaging and disengaging the manifold from the injection cavity for startup and shutdown; A high degree of manifold balance can be easily achieved; Minimize temperature bleed over between neck insert and cavity; Offers a solution for the galling and wear of traditional bottom mold retract components by utilizing a retract system; and minimizes parting line mismatch.
