2: LASER-CUT PLATE EOAT ( 216-535-4848 Plate-Based EOAT Profile-Based EOAT Cost
Lower Cost Higher Cost
I don't want to be locked into a fixed design. I want the option to tweak and adjust the EOAT easily. I want a profile-based EOAT.
The EOAT is designed well and it works. I don't want anyone making adjustments" and potentially causing damage. I want a plate-based EOAT.
Common Applications Flat parts High number of cavities Deep-core parts Small parts Large parts Insert loading EOAT High-speed molding EOAT for sprue pickers Degating
Profile-based EOAT is great for some applications, but sometimes a lower cost, lighter weight, and easier to assemble option can be used. To suit these needs, EMI also offers plate-based EOAT. Typical plate-based EOAT is laser cut from 1/8", 3/16", or 1/4" aluminum or 12-gauge stainless steel-standard materials in our inventory. Shown on the following pages of examples, excess weight is removed by material cutouts. Thinner, lighter material can be strengthened by incorporating reinforcing bends.
EMI has laser-cutting machinery in our own manufacturing plant that allows us to make plate-based EOAT fast, accurate, and at a low cost. Call our EOAT engineering department to discuss which is better for your application.
