Breakaway Cap Component Case Study
A manufacturer of Portable Test Kits and Instruments to detect and quantify contaminants in soil, water and oil required a new Breakaway Cap for use in the field.
The Breakaway Cap Project
The challenge for this injection molding project was to design and build Tooling to process, eject and de-gate the Breakaway Cap.

The Tool was made in Connecticut. The Tooling Approval and Sampling were completed at J&L. J&L’s in-house Toolroom will handle all Tool Maintenance.
|# Cavities||4 Cavity Mold|
|Tool Material||Hardened H13 Cavity and Core|
|Mold Base||DME style frame|
To De-Gate the parts from the runner system, J&L uses end-of-arm robotics to pick the runner system and parts from the mold. The end-of-arm robotics then positions the runner system and parts to a cutting fixture to separate the parts from the runner system.
