BMB 850T Injection Mould Press

Despite the current challenges that many businesses are facing, Patterson & Rothwell has made the bold decision to invest in the renowned BMB 850t injection mould press. This purchase strengthens the portfolio of P&R’s current fleet and adds increased flexibility for our customers and potential customers alike.

Furthermore, the universally recognized and admired KW clamping system, due to its unique design, combines the best features of a traditional toggle mechanism and a direct hydraulic clamp system, with its linkages that bend outwards during the opening phase.
With this design, greater opening and closing speeds are achievable with perfect parallelism assured. In addition, longer opening strokes and zero deflection of the platens are inherent features which enhances the moulds lifespan and reduces maintenance. Continue reading

Each of these parts either directly or indirectly will be utilised by our amazing National Health Service.  NHS staff are making incredible sacrifices for all of us at this unprecedented time and the very least our dedicated team here at P&R can do is to maintain supply of these key products.

Recirculating Ball Bush

P&R – When only the best will do

The technical term is Recirculating Ball Bush, which ensures ejector set alignment shot after shot. We however refer to them as Ball Cage Rollers. The use of these parts, (as they come in all sizes) cuts down maintenance, reduces wear – as they allow for metal to move against each other with the least amount of friction – keeps ejector pins aligned with the dies and leads to increased productivity and longevity. The customer benefits from a high-performance tool that will more than stand the test of time while retaining the part aesthetics well into its later years.

And guess what! they come as standard here at Patterson & Rothwell.

Pictured is an example of the die set being machined in the area where the ball cage rollers will be seated.
