- Stable Molding Enabled by V-LINE®
- Sodick's V-LINE® system is a plasticization/injection system that separates the plasticization and injection processes to ensure stable measurement and injection by removing unstable elements during plasticization, measurement, and injection. It has been combined with proprietary Sodick control technology to control the plasticization and injection processes in the optimum timing. LS40EHV is an injection molding machine that provides high accuracy and reproducibility, boasting cumulative sales of over 11,000 units.
- Electric Hybrid Direct-Pressure Clamping System
- LS40EHV incorporates an electric hybrid direct-pressure clamping system that combines the best of electrical and hydraulic clamping methods. It has the high rigidity needed to accurately maintain the clamping posture, creating uniform clamping force.
- Features Designated LIM Unit
- The V-LINE® system employed in Sodick’s injection molding machines for thermosetting resins is a type designed for liquid injection molding (LIM). V-LINE®’s simple, rational backflow prevention mechanism fills the die stably using a measured amount of material with no backflow.
Furthermore, the short flow channels of liquid injection molding units enable easy disassembly, reassembly, and maintenance.
