Hamar L743 multi-plane scanning laser is ideal for aligning injection moulding machine platens.
The alignment of injection moulding machines using traditional methods is a skilled task requiring a multitude of setups and careful attention to achieve accurate results, which even so may vary from operator to operator.
The Hamar L743 multi-plane laser presents a fast, highly accurate and repeatable alternative for the measurement of virtually all the injection moulding machine geometry including the critical alignmnet of the parallelism of the platens to each other and the platen squareness to the tie bars, which can be verified by quickly moving an electronic target to different positions on the platens and tie bars in a single laser setup.
In addition the Hamar laser system is an excellent tool for measuring tool face parallelism either on or off the injection moulding machine.
Machine adjustment is made sure and simple by the direct live readout of the platen or tie bar position at multiple target locations, transmitted to a wireless handheld display unit.
The speed and ease with which the Hamar system allows platen or tool geometry to be checked means that alignment is able to be confirmed on a regular basis, and maintained to a higher level.
Apart from reducing tool setup times and improving control of mould flashing, better alignments reduce the extraneous forces on the machine and the tools, improving their performance and their service life.
