SL Screw Assembly Detailed Technical Presentation

The Principle: The GS loading system precisely meters the resin into the barrel by synchronizing with the speed of the screw. The 14:1 L/D screw, which is designed with no compression zone, achieves a first-in/first-out, even movement of the resin through the barrel. Finally, a positive-locking non-return valve blocks backflow and eliminates inconsistencies associated with a conventional check ring.

The Result: A homogeneous melt and stable process are maintained, and uncontrolled shear heating, material stagnation/degradation, random short shots and black spots are virtually eliminated. Additionally, barrel wear, carbonization and maintence requirements are reduced. Working together with Sumitomo (SHI) Demag's Z-Molding capabilities for consistent and complete low-pressure filling and effective venting of gases, the industry's highest level of shot-to-shot repeatability and defect-free parts is achieved.

Applications: Medical, optical, connector and other high-precision parts requiring zero-defect molding.

The SL Screw Assembly is available on Sumitomo (SHI) Demag SE-DUZ, SE-EV and SR-Z all-electric machines for parts sized from fractional grams up to 244 grams (8.7 oz).
