Desktop Moulding Machines? You NEED to learn about this versatile tool….

Simcoe Plastics Ltd is honoured to be the sole Canadian distributor of APSX-PIM desktop injection moulding machines (DMIMM)!

This product delivers on many levels including: low-cost, desktop footprint, horizontal format, electric, full-automatic plastic injection (patent pending).

Seeing DTIMM as a viable market niche, slotting perfectly between the one-off flexibility of 3D printing and the large volume production of typical full scale injection moulding, DTIMM affords low-cost prototyping, small volume runs of small parts and economic accessibility of mass production to low-volume applications.
The APSX-PIM Automatic desktop injection molding machine has a small footprint of 4 ft X 1 ft.  The machine boasts all electric (115VAC), full automatic control of molding actions, pressure, time and temperatures. 1″ steel bar construction. The accuracy with the ball screws and sensors is impeccable.

Features:

  • Touch screen tablet PC for user control
  • Precision distance, temperature and pressure sensors
  • Repeatable processes once injection profile file established
  • No water cooling line installation required

APSX LLC developed the APSX-PIM as a great alternative to the costly overpowered large injection molding machines that are typically over designed for R&D, Prototyping, Product Design, Education, Hobby and other low-volume production environments. The desktop injection machine has automation and accuracy to do real work, while still retaining all the significant features that make an injection machine attractive in the first place: small footprint, repeatability, and minimal input power.

APSX-PIM solution is usually more cost-effective than typical conventional molds alone. You can do-it-yourself with a low-risk and low-cost option, instead of getting the prototypes developed by 3rd party plastic injection molders. It’s made in Cincinnati, Ohio.
KEY FEATURES OF APSX-PIM
- Compact design
- Strong body structure with stainless steel, aluminum 6061, bronze and Delrin parts
- All electric and no water-coolant system
- Full automatic with precision sensors
- Injection speed control for fill rate
- Electronic temperature control system
- User touch screen for operational control

The design of the machine is solid with a small footprint, making it easy for use and storage.  APSX-PIM isn’t your ordinary manual desktop injection machine. Instead of manual injection molding actions, it’s built with automated clamping, injection and eject features. Each APSX-PIM desktop injection machine employs a strong structure with steel bars, precisely designed to provide maximum mold size in a footprint that’s not much bigger than a traditional manual desktop injection press. Each APSX-PIM features anodized hard aluminum blocks for a robust structure and the best scratch protection by providing greater wear resistance for a lifetime of use. All APSX-PIM are also equipped with high precision ballscrews for accuracy and rigidity of the machine.


The APSX-PIM features a 6000LBS rated spring powered by a precise but low–maintenance chain and ballscrew system driven by an electric motor. This mechanism delivers infinite injection speed control, resulting in an injection system that is both powerful and precise at micro level. That is much more under controlled and repeatable than the underpowered injection handles on typical desktop injection presses. Along with that, state-of-the-art touchless distance sensors and nozzle valve control system offers the APSX-PIM injection plunger exceptional flow control and mold flow profile characteristics unlike any other desktop injection machines.

APSX-PIM machines feature a gearbox and ballscrew combo system for clamping mechanism. This isn’t an arbitrary design, but also can be a standard for clamping systems by other injection machines in the future. This means the APSX-PIM can be used in combination with other gearboxes with different gear ratios to adjust the clamping force and clamping speed, expanding tooling choices beyond the default specifications.

Direct-drive motion for hopper feeder mechanism is provided by precision electric motor coupled with specially designed mini screw to feed the heat barrel with plastic pellets of all kinds. This system is ideal for a repeatable and accurate material control since the system decides how much plastic is required by calculating how much is used in the previous cycles.
These make the APSX-PIM a perfect choice as a desktop injection machine!

As with all APSX products, APSX-PIM desktop injection machines are backed with the  technical support team to ensure your satisfaction.

Representing APSX LLC allows us to tap into a new segment of the plastics industry in Canada, while leveraging our knowledge and resin supply capabilities. APSX LLC is the creation of Burak Cevik and Kubi Kara (Partners owning the APSX WideBand brand of automotive aftermarket components). The APSX-PIM was the result of APSX WideBand’s own production requirements, so the proof of concept and business case is solid and proven.
