SINCERE TECH- Shorter lead times and lower initial costs for new plastic-molded products are now possible with the Morgan-Press, a machine especially designed for short-run production and prototype injection moulding, according to Charles R. Land, president of Morgan Industries, Inc.

Because of its unique ability to use only a small quantity of material, the Morgan-Press can actually mold a test specimen or product using “test tube” quantities of experimental plastics without the need to pelletize them beforehand.

Since compounders and plastic formulators often deal with very expensive or scarce materials, it is particularly important that they be able to test in the smallest amounts possible.  The Morgan-Press is the molder that best meets this need and, in addition, uses low-cost tooling for economical production of prototype and short-run parts of up to 4-oz. shot size.

Morgan-Press machines are used extensively by development labs; by plastic blenders, compounders and formulators; and by one-of-a-kind or short-run producers such as medical laboratories, R & D departments, model shops and companies that require “in-house” control of unique product design and development projects.

Using low-cost tooling which can be made “in-house” from aluminum and other easy-to-machine materials, the Morgan-Press can produce low-volume, proprietary products which are uneconomical to buy out.  A Morgan-Press and tooling together can often cost less than conventional molds alone.

In addition, complete in-house control of all plastic molds and production greatly improves the ability to maintain confidentiality of designs during early development stages.

The Morgan-Press can be used with almost any thermoplastic material, and allows rapid changes for finding the proper material at the lowest price.

This unique engineering manual covers most basic prototype and short-run applications and plastic mold making process in detail: part design, material selection, mold building, part production, etc. Presents actual cases with photos of parts, mold sketches, tool life, quantities and materials molded. Examples include aluminum and epoxy tooling, EDM cavity, encapsulation and inserts. Cost comparisons show savings achieved.  Great idea guide for “in-house” injection molding applications.

A practical manual for design and development for model shop or production people who build or subcontract tooling for product development projects or short-run production.
