Post Cooling

"Post cooling" (which we coined "cold-air staking") was developed over 25 years ago by Sonitek and today is still one of the most important features for providing a reliable and repeatable process of heatstaking thermoplastic materials, especially materials with high melting temperatures or applications which may have a spring retention requirement. 



Hydraulic Speed Control (HSC)Highly recommended

Hydraulic down speed control to check kinetic energy and control velocity of ram by operator.
