Doubled output: More power through new platform tools



ZAHORANSKY developed the platform multi-component tools for manufacturers of frequently changing products. They significantly facilitate machine configuration; a simple exchange of mold inserts in the master mold is sufficient for a quick production change.

Previously available platform tools

  • Available in versions of 4, 8, 12, and 16
  • Use on injection molding machines with a max. clamping force of 4,000 KN and with up to three injection units

New platform H tools

  • Available for up to 48 inserts
  • Doubled output
  • Large design with a length of max. 1.5 m
  • Injection molding machines must have a clamping force of 5,000 to 6,000 KN

Super easy relocation is possible

Another new feature is the lateral retraction for relocating the injection-molded parts.
  1. Four grippers remove the pre-molded parts and place them into the next cavity.
  2. The parts to be manufactured are held in the relocation handling by means of a mold rail and a vacuum suction device and then transported to the next station.
  3. The finished parts are transported outside the tool and removed there.

Platform H technical details

  • Highly precise transport movements through servo drives
  • High speed of 1.5 m/sec
  • Maximum load capacity 300 kg
  • Relocation and removal handling are controlled through ZAHORANSKY PLC
    (independent of the injection-molding machine control)

The best for last
The master mold can be easily scaled down or up and the mold inserts can easily be inserted into the newly created master form.
