We’re iMFLUX-Innovators transforming the future of plastic injection molding.
Our team will help you realize breakthrough results and create a competitive advantage while solving difficult molding problems. We equip your team to simplify and optimize your molding operations-unlocking your ability to deliver more adaptive, reliable, and predictive processes
iMFLUX is the only molding company that integrates game-changing processing software and machine learning with state-of-the-art mold shop. We provide the way to autonomous molding with a new capability to design and mold that impossible part. Our revolutionary low-constant-pressure injection molding platform works on virtually any machine, material, and mold.
With iMFLUX, your sites run more reliably with fewer operator adjustments. You’ll produce higher quality parts, reduce costs, and lower capital-all while advancing your sustainability efforts.
WE DELIVER THESE PROMISES BY:
Our People, Your Partners
Together, we elevate your molding operations and allow you to offer new capabilities to your customers.
We combine process control technology and mold-shop expertise for higher throughput and faster
Solutions for Sustainability
We innovate so you immediately run more sustainable materials with less energy, wear, and waste.
We truly believe the technology behind iMFLUX will drive a step change in the way injection molding is done. This is why we have been a partner and have systems running on large programs in Europe and North America, as well as development systems in our Innovation Center.
iMFLUX has proved to be a valuable asset to our injection molding operations. We recently inherited a transfer tool from one of our customers that was under a strict time deadline. Initial sampling with standard decoupled processes were yielding scrap rates of 20-25%. Utilizing IMFLUX’s Auto-Viscosity Adjust software, we were not only able to improve cycle time by 15%, but also reduce part weight and reduce scrap rate to less than 1%. It was a significant win for both us and our customer.
The benefits we have seen with iMFLUX have been a reduction in cycle time of existing molds and also the ability with new tools to increase cavitation by up to 50%, which allows us to free up injection molding capacity and production space for other activities.
The Green Curve has proved invaluable in our effort to establish more processes using sustainable resins. Not only have we been able to increase our percent of regrind used, but we are seeing more consistency than ever before.
Over six years ago, our early joint research with iMFLUX identified a number of interesting advantages over conventional molding practices, but also identified a number of challenges. What has been exciting to see is iMFLUX’s ability to take these challenges and turn them into strengths. Today iMFLUX has emerged as a method and a highly advanced control system that is providing a much needed alternative to the way the industry currently thinks of injection molding.
We are excited to be able to offer iMFLUX integrated solutions, and with Milacron’s M-Powered IoT portal we will be able to quickly install iMFLUX technology and offer technology updates as they become available.
We have customers running iMFLUX in a wide variety of applications, machine sizes, types and resins. Our joint iMFLUX-Milacron customers have seen many benefits, including, cycle savings, energy savings, scrap reduction, reduced tonnage and tighter and more consistent part dimensions. As molders, part designers, and mold builders become more familiar with the constant low-pressure filling, even more significant advantages will be seen as more complex part geometries are developed to take advantage of the iMFLUX process capabilities that are simply too difficult to achieve with the decoupled molding process.
