Magnum Venus Products (MVP, Knoxville, Tenn., USA) is set to deliver a showcase featuring a host of improved, mostly open products and processes and closed molding equipment, adhesive application systems, additives manufacturing technology (AM) and custom automation solutions, all backed by ttechnical experts who will be available at the MVP stand.
Back by popular demand, Closed Molding Product Manager Charles Tur will be hosting live closed molding demos every day at 10am, 1pm and 3pm at the MVP booth (Hall 5, Booth V42). The demo will showcase MVP’s newest closed molding method, Fast Flow LRTM. Designed for high viscosity resin, Fast Flow combines MVP’s flexible molding process with LRTM and uses a collapsible resin channel for faster resin flow, reducing injection time and nearly eliminating waste. Tur will demonstrate the Fast Flow process to create a tram front end.
In addition to the activities at the booth, MVP’s Director of Product Development, Mike Kastura, will present “Next Generation Mold Making with Thermoset 3D Printing” on May 4 from 10:00 a.m. to 10:25 a.m. in Agora 6. This presentation will showcase recent advances and real world applications of 3D printed thermoset molds and tools, says MVP. Unveiled in 2019, MVP’s Reactive Additive Manufacturing (RAM) system is designed to enable cost-effective manufacturing of medium to large scale thermoset materials. The new model, named RAM 48, has a 4″ x 8″ print area with modular and expandable 4″ x 4″ sections for custom build dimensions. Part of the MVP booth will feature RAM 3D printed molds that have been tested and proven in real production environments.
CatalystAlarm monitoring system.
Other items on display include the company’s CatalystAlarm monitor, which is supposed to help manufacturers reduce material waste and better control costs. Compatible with MVP pumping, mixing and dosing systems, the catalyst alarm will signal if the catalyst pump fails to deliver a full serving of catalyst to the applicator or gun, ensuring an accurate mix ratio for each part. This product combats a variety of issues, notes MVP, such as undercatalyzed parts, wasted materials and safety hazards.
Finally, MVP’s automation equipment will be on display in a tabletop filament winding demonstration. MVP’s line of custom automation solutions includes a variety of systems for specialty impregnation, flat panel display production and filament winding solutions.
