iPhone covers produced on a hydraulic ALLROUNDER GOLDEN EDITION
A hydraulic ALLROUNDER 420 C GOLDEN EDITION with a clamping force of 1,000 kN produces flexible LSR cases for the iPhone 8. The mould was provided by Prover, while the LSR dosing unit comes from 2KM. A MULTILIFT SELECT linear robotic system performs the handling tasks. The machine from the entry-level GOLDEN EDITION series has been specially adapted to process LSR.
Metal smartphone frames
At the Taipei Plas, the metal smartphone frames with a polishable surface will be produced on an electric ALLROUNDER 470 E GOLDEN ELECTRIC. This machine from the electric entry level series is equipped for Metal Injection Moulding (MIM). Due to the thin-walled and stress-free design of the smartphone frame, production is extremely demanding.
