PROVIDING ENGINEERED HEAT TRANSFER SYSTEMS FOR OVER FOUR DECADES

For more than 40 years, Acrolab has delivered patented Isobar® technology to the plastics, rubber and composite processing industries to effectively overcome limitations imposed by traditional tool steels used by injection molders, resulting in substantial improvements in processing efficiency, reducing scrap and improving cycle times. Even with recent advances in higher thermal conductivity steel, molders still face challenges with deep draw tool designs and more advanced materials requiring narrower thermal processing windows.

Isobar’s high thermal conductivity allows them to be used to combat long cycle time, poor temperature distribution and mold durability. Additionally, moldmakers using conventional tool steels as well as higher conductivity steels can expect to achieve exceptional results with the use of Isobar Engineered Heat Transfer Systems. Contact Acrolab’s application specialists when dealing with thermal problems and to improve the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of the process.

ACROLAB PROVIDES COMPREHENSIVE SUPPORT ON ALL ASPECTS OF THERMAL DESIGN

Mold heat up can take substantially more time when working with deep draw molds since these molds may require the addition of heaters in the retainer plate. There should be, at minimum, one thermocouple to control each half of the mold. In larger molds, it becomes necessary to have more than one thermocouple in each half of the mold.

Acrolab is typically brought in early in the mold design phase providing thermal engineering support to the design team, as well as to deliver recommendations on heater placement, thermocouple placement, zone configuration and Isobar placement, resulting in greater control and a more uniform mold temperature. Thermocouple placement is critical to the overall success of the thermal design of the mold, Acrolab provides comprehensive support to its clients on all aspects of thermal design, including full heating system designs, electrical schematics, pre-wired mold boxes, cable and control panels.

A Diverse Range Of Clients

Our clients range from niche suppliers to large multi-national Tier-1s and OEMs. Typically, Acrolab is contacted to resolve challenges with the manufacturers of complex geometric shapes and forms for composite parts as well as to consult on thermal management solutions for existing and new tooling platforms for composite parts.
