The partnership provides JSW customers with access to the iMFLUX low-constant-pressure molding platform on their high speed all-electric presses, particularly important in packaging applications. iMFLUX enables reduced tonnage requirements, further lowers energy usage, and adapts to material variation in real time. JSW & iMFLUX are challenging the industry to think differently about processing with sustainable resins and providing sustainability solutions to the industry at large.

“We believe the iMFLUX technology is one of the most innovative technologies to come into the PLASTICS Industry. It corrects many of the molding defects molders struggle with every day,” said Dale Bartholomew, National Technical Manager for Japan Steel Works America, Inc. “It is a pleasure to work with the iMFLUX team, to bring this technology to our customers.”

“The iMFLUX technology is a perfect fit with the innovative features of JSW-America’s line-up of high-speed injection molding machines,” said Kevin Wise, iMFLUX’s CFO and VP Business Development. “Our team is poised to work with JSW to bring new ways for our joint customers to address some of today’s most difficult molding challenges.”

Virtual Demonstration Scheduled as part of iMFLUX Fearless Innovation Series

A virtual event held by iMFLUX on July 20, 2021 will highlight the iMFLUX processing technology on a JSW J350ADS-460H-Ultra Spec. The demonstration will highlight how the process adapts to mold and material changes in real time, a key enabler to customers reaching their sustainability goals. Watch the process automatically adjust to blocked cavities and material changes, going from a virgin SR549 PP (11 MFI) to Sustainable Resin’s PCR (25 MFI), while maintaining part quality, weight, and dimensions.
