Abate Basilio has developed a new system of modular mould called FlexoMould. This proprietary technology allows us to change the format in a completely safe manner through the movements of the machine platen without any risks for the moulds and the operators.
FlexoMould ensures a fast change and set up of other moulding modules in order to manufacture different products on the same mould without the need to remove the mould from the machine platens. Furthermore the mould obtained with this technology allows to take advantage of the automation in the best way.
This system allows to maintain the same number of cavities, the same distance between centres and the same type of extraction, by ensuring flexibility and optimization of the IML production line at the same time.
Modularity of the cavities in order to change the dimensions and the shape of the products on the same mould.
Fast change and set up of other modules directly on the machine without removing the mould from the machine platens.
Set up time to change the format: for a 2-cavity FlexoMould® < 20 min., for a 4-cavitiy FlexoMould® < 40 min.
The format change operations can be carried out under completely safe conditions through the movements of the machine platens without any risks for the moulds and the operators.
It is no longer required to remove the mould from the machine and to change the format in the maintenance room of the company: all the mounting/dismantling operations are made directly by the machine.
Furthermore the mould manufactured using this strategy allows to take better advantage of the automation. As a matter of fact, thanks to this system the number of cavities remains unchanged, the same distance between centres and the same type of extraction are maintained in order to take better advantage of the flexibility of the robot, thus optimizing the investment in the IML production lines.
Especially suitable to cover production requirements which do not ensure the full load of the production cell.
Thanks to its technology, flexibility and analytical approach, Abate Basilio does not only manufacture high performance moulds for the injection of plastic materials, but also provides customized solutions for any project. Thanks to the control of the entire production chain, from planning to delivery, each mould ensures unique quality, durability and performance.
Abate offers a service of consultancy and analysis of the customer’s needs specific for each project. A specific technical knowledge is required for each sector, from food industry to chemicals, logistics etc., in order to be able to design and manufacture the more appropriate mould for a specific product.
Our production line includes 5-axis machining centres with fully automatic tool and pallets changers which allow us to achieve maximum repeatability and quickest throughput. Our machines are equipped with a laser control of the real dimensions directly obtained during the process in order to achieve the maximum precisions.
Our technical department ensures a fast, reliable and precise after-sale service. 95% of the company production is destined to be exported to different countries located over 5 continents. Our company has always given support to customers all over the world thanks to reliable planning of the mould and availability of spare parts which are guaranteed for 20 years.
