Sumitomo (SHI) Demag's Z-Molding provides exceptional molding precision with low-pressure filling and reduced clamp force. By shifting the focus to low-pressure filling and reduced clamp force, molders can achieve combined benefits in precision, part cost and overall productivity. Play the video below or scroll down the page for more information on the three unique systems of Z-Molding.



Z-Molding brings together three unique systems:

  • Flow Front Control (FFC) system that achieves complete and balanced filling with reduced injection pressure. FFC takes advantage of the energy in the flow front of the resin to complete filling in an even fashion as opposed to forcing material into open areas and thus flashing the areas that were already filled. More.
  • Minimum Clamping Molding (MCM) system that reduces clamp force requirements and ensures optimized venting of gases and flash-free molding. MCM allows the machine to automatically detect the minimum point at which the mold halves are completely parallel and defines the threshold where flash-free molding can occur and the optimum point at which the best cavity venting exists. More.
  • Simple Process Setting (SPS) system that provides fast, guided setup, ease of use and machine optimization. More.

Z-Molding is only available on Sumitomo (SHI) Demag SE and CL Series all-electric injection molding machines.
