Husky Injection Molding Systems has announced it has been awarded with the Ringier Technology Innovation Award for its recently-introduced HyperSync system. HyperSync is the industry’s first fully integrated system for the manufacture of specialty closures, built to work together to provide synchronisation of mould and machine processes, performance and speed. The Technology Innovation Award, presented to Husky on March 9th during an award ceremony in Shanghai, honours the HyperSync system for increasing productivity, improving product performance and effectiveness, and creating unique market opportunities.
“We are thrilled that our hard work in developing this innovative new system has been recognised with one of the plastics industry’s most notable awards,” said Haim Za’afrani, Husky’s Vice President of Packaging. “Husky is the only company in the industry that is able to offer a complete, integrated system for specialty closure manufacturing, demonstrating our commitment to developing innovative products that increase productivity, improve part quality, and optimise energy efficiency.”
HyperSync is a synchronised system, with mould, machine, hot runner and auxiliaries designed to work together. Combined with intelligent features and networking capabilities that highlight Industry 4.0-level connectivity, the increased synchronisation of machine and mould processes is said to deliver faster cycle times at a lower total part cost, with no impact to product quality. These intelligent features make the system more intuitive and self-adaptive to parameter changes, reducing risk and eliminating waste in the injection process.
HyperSync was officially introduced at K 2016 in D?sseldorf as the industry’s first integrated system for specialty closure manufacturing, with KTW tooling and eIMC in-mould closing technology intended to provide increased productivity and product quality. Designed to support Husky’s tooling focus in specialty closures, packaging and medical, over time the company plans to expand into other markets and applications where HyperSync can create value, offering a wide variety of clamp sizes and specifications to meet the needs of its customers.
