When Sega needed protective side panels for its latest range of arcade games, it turned to Harcostar for a moulded solution.
Sega specified use of ABS and HIPS, and the complexity of the panels made this a particularly challenging application. Sega was keen to use these materials to achieve a futuristic profile combined with high impact resistance.
The highly complex rectangular panels incorporate ribbing, straight faces and numerous 90 corners. Cooling techniques and mould temperature management were critical given that the materials cool so rapidly to ensure the parison remained malleable until every void was filled.
